Movie Trailer Review: By Jonathan Wilson
Spider Man, The Hulk, Batman, Thor, The Adventures of Tin Tin.
What do all of these movies have in common?
They are all film adaptations of beloved comics. We all know that an adaptation of any medium on to film can be tricky. The main factor being, WHO’S DIRECTING IT!? Fortunately, there’s a little thing called “reputation”, and Steven Spielberg has it in spades.
The original comic by Hergé, was said for its time, to have a drawing style that was very “crisp and expressive”. Steven Spielberg has captured this same sense of style and tone quite beautifully on the digital animation platform.
As if that weren’t enough, Jamie Bell (Billy Elliot, King Kong, Defiance) is doing the voice of Tin Tin, the tenacious young boy with a taste for adventure, Daniel Craig (Casino Royale, Munich, Layer Cake) is the rambunctious pirate Red Rackham, and Simon Pegg lends his accent to Inspector Thompson.
This movie seems to have it all, action, adventure, and an ADORABLE dog named Snow. Let’s all keep an eye out for this one.
