The Adventures Of Tin: Secret of the Unicorn DVD
It was a big risk taking a much loved cartoon character and throwing it in with an equally loved director and hoping that it would somehow work amazingly, but in the end it seemed to come together well at the cinema. However, one of the big question marks over The Adventures Of Tintin: Secret Of The Unicorn DVD is how well the chunky looking animation will translate down to the small screen format.
Released on the 19th March 2012, The Adventures Of Tintin: Secret Of The Unicorn DVD is the small screen delivery of a big screen hit that did well in terms of both box office success and critical acclaim. The performance capture 3D animation looked impressive on the supersize screens, so the next text for the film will be its deliver on the little black mirror.
The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn is the first of Hergé’s epic children’s cartoons to be made into a film in the 21st Century, combining The Crab with the Golden Claws, The Secret of the Unicorn and Red Rackham’s Treasure, three of his comic books, which were first published in the 1940s.
Starting out with Tintin’s (Jamie Bell) first meeting with Captain Haddock (Andy Serkis), the legendary odd couple set out to get Haddock’s ancestral treasure. In the process they must put together the mystery of sinking of Sir Francis Haddock’s ship, the Unicorn, at the hands of the dread pirate, Red Racham (played by Daniel Craig).
So far, so Tintin. There’s also the addition of Simon Pegg & Nick Frost as Thomson and Thomson to look forward to for anyone that didn’t catch Secret of the Unicorn at the flicks.
