Save the Date – The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of The Unicorn UK Premiere October 23rd
The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of The Unicorn will be having its UK premiere on SUNDAY 23 OCTOBER 2011 at The Odeon, Leicester Square.
Jamie Bell, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost will be there to walk the red carpet along with writers Edgar Wright, Joe Cornish and Steven Moffat.
For their latest, most daring escapade, Tintin and friends will escape from the pages of the classic comic for the UK Premiere of THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN: THE SECRET OF THE UNICORN, a 3D red carpet adventure with some of England's best home-grown talent at London's Odeon West End on 23 October.
From Oscar®-winning director Steven Spielberg and Oscar®-winning producer Peter Jackson, two of today's most visionary storytellers, comes a 3D motion picture event: an epic, globe-hopping quest that spans hidden mysteries, menacing criminals and ancient secrets - and brings to dazzling, life the classic escapades that have enthralled generation after generation with their one-of-a-kind mix of action, humor and scintillating tale-spinning in The Adventures of Tintin: THE SECRET OF THE UNICORN.
Based on the internationally beloved and irrepressible characters created by Hergé, the story follows the unquenchably curious young reporter Tintin (Jamie Bell) and his fiercely loyal dog Snowy as they discover a model ship carrying an explosive secret. Drawn into a centuries-old mystery, Tintin finds himself in the sightlines of Ivan Ivanovitch Sakharine (Daniel Craig), a diabolical villain who believes Tintin has stolen a priceless treasure tied to dastardly pirate named Red Rackham. But with the help of his dog Snowy, the salty, cantankerous Captain Haddock (Andy Serkis) and the bumbling detectives Thompson & Thomson (Simon Pegg and Nick Frost), Tintin will travel half the world, outwitting and outrunning his enemies in a breathless chase to find the final resting place of The Unicorn, a shipwreck that may hold the key to vast fortune ... and an ancient curse.
From the high seas to the sands of North African deserts, every new twist and turn sweeps Tintin and his friends to escalating levels of thrills and peril, proving that when you dare to risk everything, there's no limit to what you can do.
