As you can probably assume, Peter Jackson is an insanely busy man at the moment. With The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey due out in theaters this week pretty much everywhere around the world, the Kiwi filmmaker has been flying around and going from city to city doing interviews and promotional events for the new film, and once he's done with that he has to return back to Wellington and get to work on prepping The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.

Our own Katey Rich gave The Adventures of Tintin four and a half stars, and called it "Steven Spielberg's most purely joyful film in at least a decade." Based on the beloved Belgian comic created by Herge, The Adventures of Tintin sees the titular young reporter swept up in adventure after he buys an old model ship that just happens to contain a clue to finding a long-lost treasure.

Steven Spielberg Drops Hints At Tintin Parts Two And Three Steven Spielberg Drops Hints At Tintin Parts Two And Three
Then Spielberg said that he hopes to resume directing duties for part three, which excites me (as I loved The Secret of the Unicorn). I’m also amazed that Spielberg can line up roughly 17 projects in a row. We know he’s working on Lincoln with Daniel Day Lewis, and he’s moving on to the sci-fi thriller Robopocalypse after that. He’s always circling a fifth Indiana Jones movie. And he wants to do Tintin. Anything else, sir? Can you leave a few projects for the rest of us?

Holiday Weekend Box Office: Hollywood In The Red For Christmas Holiday Weekend Box Office: Hollywood In The Red For Christmas
After a slow start for movies opening early on Wednesday, the Christmas holiday rallied a bit into Monday. Overall, box office results were slightly higher than the same four day holiday weekend last year, but that's small consolation for an industry that saw a major ticket sale backslide in 2011.

Adventures Of Tintin Review: Pure Spielberg Excitement At AFI Fest Adventures Of Tintin Review: Pure Spielberg Excitement At AFI Fest
Since the project’s inception, people have wondered if Steven Spielberg’s The Adventures of Tintin will be able to find an American audience. While the comics by Herge, on which the film is based, are immensely popular overseas, they’ve never had much appeal in the United States. The truth, however, is that so long as people still love Spielberg-brand adventure films, Tintin shouldn’t have any issue.

But while Spielberg hadn't heard of Tintin, the fellow responsible for Tintin had definitely heard of Spielberg. Michael Farr, an expert on Tintin, says that the comic's creator, Hergé (a pen name of Belgian artist Georges Rémi), first discovered Spielberg's work with Duel, the 1971 TV movie about a hapless traveler who gets on the bad side of an insane truck driver.

Steven Spielberg, Peter Jackson On Their Long Connection To Tintin Steven Spielberg, Peter Jackson On Their Long Connection To Tintin
To be completely honest, Steven Spielberg’s The Adventures of Tintin wasn’t moving my needle. I’m not familiar with the timeless character, who is huge overseas, and the director’s last two stabs at high-concept adventure -- The Lost World: Jurassic Park and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull -- didn’t live up to expectations.

Based on the long-running and internationally popular series of comic books by Belgian artist Georges Rémi (under the pen name of Hergé), the series follows a young Beglian reporter named Tintin. He's surrounded by a colorful cast of characters as he travels the globe having adventures and getting into scrapes. Sort of a less grizzled Indiana Jones set in a sillier world.

Director Robert Zemeckis has spent the last decade trying to find the potential in 100% performance-capture film. From The Polar Express to Beowulf to A Christmas Carol, Zemeckis has always run into one big obstacle: the uncanny valley. As hard as he tried, the human characters in his movies suffered from being dead behind the eyes and were hard to watch as a result.

I may be in the minority, but I like pretty much everything i'm seeing here. The motion-capture seems to be used to give a slight edge of realism to the human characters, but not so much that they get creepy-- all the characters are just stylized enough

The movie has yet to be all that heavily promoted over here, both thanks to the fact that Tintin-- a comic character drawn by Belgian artist Herge-- isn't as iconic in the United States as in Europe, and probably also because DreamWorks is still figuring out how to sell audiences
