If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Steven Spielberg's 'The Adventures of Tintin' was a marvel of animated filmmaking. Whether you ended up enjoying it or not, the achievements in the field of motion-capture technology utilized for the movie were astounding. Soon after the release of 'The Adventures of Tintin' it was announced that the sequel would not be directed by Spielberg, but instead Peter Jackson. So when would we see this second installment of Tintin's filmic adventures? Now, thanks to Jackson himself, we have our answer. During a press tour for 'The Hobbit,' Jackson revealed that 'Tintin: Prisoners of the Sun,' which is a great title by the way, will begin shooting the motion performances next year in time for a theatrical release in 2015. With his adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's classic 'Lord of the Rings' preamble now being released as a trilogy, this announcement effectively means that we will have a new Peter Jackson movie every year from now until 2015.
Wow, so chalk up another big title for 2015. Just days ago we learned that Fox's Fantastic Four reboot was lining itself up to compete with the likes of 'The Avengers 2,' 'The Justice League,' 'Star Wars Episode VII,' and 'Ant-Man.' However, this barely scratches the surface of the innumerable giant releases that will begin crowding into theaters just over two years from now. Again, some of these may shift closer to that time, but even so, it's going to be a titanic year for movies and Tintin has just thrown his hat into that formidable ring. My hope with 'Prisoners of the Sun' is that Jackson will have gotten past his 48fps phase, and that we won't have to suffer a Tintin story that looks like a soap opera. As much as the first 'Tintin' was an innovative film, I frankly just don't see any merit in this accelerated frame rate and can't subscribe to it's potential to improve the sequel. Sure, we'll probably have the option to see 'Tintin' in 24fps, but I hope Jackson is able to see by then how unnecessary this technology really is.
What do you guys think? Will 'The Adventures of 'Tintin: Prisoners of the Sun' be able to compete in 2015. Any thoughts on 48fps?
