Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson are teaming up to launch The Adventures of Tintin in late 2011. This first of two movies brings to life the enormously popular books by Hergé in performance-captured, 3D form. The conceptual design and visual effects for the movie are being created by Weta, the multi Academy Award-winning company who helped create global blockbusters such as Avatar, The Lord of the Rings, District 9, King Kong, The Chronicles of Narnia and many others. The very same Weta artists who are working on the movie will be launching The Art of The Adventures of Tintin book in October 2011. Readers will get the inside story on how the movie progresses from the original works, through the movie design process, to the final look on the big screen.
