In the great decade that was the 90′s Steven Spielberg released a movie that capture the imagination of audiences everywhere. Now he hopes to take audiences back to that horrifyingly, magical land of Jurassic Park, but this time in 3D. You can watch the first trailer, not in 3D, for the release right after the jump.
When it comes to adaptations, there are two ways you can go about it – a really good adaptation, or a really bad one. In the case of The Adventures of Tintin, Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson have done something quite different – done an adaptation that is better than the source material.
Director Steven Spielberg is headed to the San Diego Comic Con! Spielberg will be presented with an Inkpot Award and will presumably show Tintin off to the crowd. The Adventures of Tintin panel takes place in Hall H on the morning of Friday July 22, and currently the description of the panel simply says, “TBA”.
So if you wanna see the biggest name in H’wood, and you want to see what all the buzz is about Tintin, it looks like this will be the panel to see at SDCC.

The first poster for the Spielberg/Jackson Tintin movie has arrived.
Though I’m not sold on the mo-cap portion of the movie, nor I’m I excited about the movie being in 3D/3-D, I still want to see it.
The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn is the first in the series of 3D motion capture films based on the iconic character created by Georges Remi, better known to the world by his pen name “Hergé.” The film stars Bell as Tintin, the intrepid young reporter whose relentless pursuit of a good story thrusts him into a world of high adventure. The movie adapts both Hergé’s “The Secret of the Unicorn” and “Red Rackham’s Treasure,” using the title of the former.
A brand new trailer for the J. J. Abrams/Steven Spielberg Super 8 movie.
In the summer of 1979, a group of friends in a small Ohio town witness a catastrophic train crash while making a super 8 movie and soon suspect that it was not an accident. Shortly after, unusual disappearances and inexplicable events begin to take place in town, and the local Deputy tries to uncover the truth – something more terrifying than any of them could have imagined.
I thought it felt like E.T. before, but now, this feels like the best parts of all of Spielberg’s films back when he was doing really great stuff. Watch close and you’ll see E.T., Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Amazing Stories, and Indiana Jones…
