Peter Jackson will film his Tintin sequel next year for a 2015 release

Dec. 12, 2012by:

I bet many of you never thought you would see that headline. With THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN: THE SECRET OF THE UNICORN only grossing $77 million domestically, it seemed like a forgone conclusion that Peter Jackson would not be making the second film in the proposed trilogy. Well, it seems that thanks to the wonderful international box office numbers (close to $400 million), THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN will continue.

Bleeding Cool reported that during press for THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY, Peter Jackson divulged that he would be filming the motion capture for the movie next year which would aim for a release in 2015. Assuming recent reports that he still has more to film for THE HOBBIT: THERE AND BACK AGAIN, the next year is going to be a crazy one for the director.

I enjoyed THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN: SECRET OF THE UNICORN, but I didn't love it. The motin capture technology is still somewhat static to me, despite advances in the technology. However, a lot has changed even since 2011 when the first movie was released. Look at how much better Gollum looks in THE HOBBIT clips compared to RETURN OF THE KING?

I am hoping this comes true as Tintin is a really cool character. The sequel, whose screenplay will be by Anthony Horowitz, may follow the stories "Prisoners of the Sun" or "The Calculus Affair". I would assume Andy Serkis and Jamie Bell would be coming back. What remains to be seen is who else will join the adventure.

Are you excited for a new Tintin movie?

Awesome! TinTin was the best movie Speilberg has directed in years, I think since Jurrasic Park and harkened back to growing up on Raiders and Amblin films, Goonies etc. The motion capture was simply the best I've seen and amaz ing in 3D.

Hell Yeah!

I love the first film! Having spent a number of childhood years in Europe (and other countries), I grew up with these stories. I am beyond stoked for a new one!

The strange thing is I was listening to John Williams' score for Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn when this headline came up. I really hope they keep him for the sequel.

Domestic vs International Box Office

I know America is the home of blockbuster movies and all that. But this whole obsession with Domestic gross gets a bit ridiculous sometimes. This movie is a perfect example. Domestic Gross - $70. International Gross- almost $400 MILLION!!! And it was considered by some to be a flop??

Extra tidbit: Daniel Craig did a surprisingly good job for his voice-over role in The Secret of the Unicorn. The movie was a lot of fun too. Can't wait for the new Tintin movie.

I loved Secret of the Unicorn. It was best animated movie of the year (Cars 2 came in second and both were miles ahead of Rango). another movie is very much welcomed, dunno who is gonna direct, Speilberg seemed to flurish in animation being unchained by the dementions of reality. One of my favorite directing jobs from him.

Nice

I enjoyed the movie, my gf is a big Tintin fan, but there was one problem. Tintin's face was a little too realistic when it was compared to..... well every other characters face in the movie. I know they were trying to keep the other characters looking like they did from the original stories (The two Tom's being a perfect example) but it was always noticable how different the lvl of detail was. I hope they do a bit more to the other characters to make them a little more life like as they did

Loved it

I thought it was great, and the CGI format really let Spielberg lose with camera movements and cinematic flair that just wouldn't be achievable in live action movies.

I really hope they bring back the whole creative team.
