Spielberg's TINTIN gets a release date!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. In a weird, but not surprising, move Steven Spielberg's motion capture trilogy kick-off THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN: THE SECRET OF THE UNICORN will be released in the US December 23rd, 2011, two months after it sees international release. According to Variety's Tatiana Siegel the pic is scheduled to hit international screens in October or November 2011. Like most ignorant Americans I only know TINTIN's face, never having dug up the Herge comics as a kid. So, it doesn't surprise me they're hitting up International first as TINTIN is a much bigger deal everywhere outside America. The other bit of news in the article is that they confirmed a 3-D release for the flick. After having seen the CHRISTMAS CAROL Cannes reel, I think performance capture animation in 3-D is pretty damn wicked and can't wait to see one from the combined imaginations of Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson.
