New Tintin poster!

How do you like those apples? There’s a big version over here.

To all you actual Tintin fans: What do you think, huh? This kind of confirms what we already knew about how “The Secret of the Unicorn” has been somehow combined with “Cigars of the Pharaoh.” Or rather, the brief sequence on the trawler in “Cigars” (with the famous Tintin/Haddock first meeting) and the escape by longboat has been transposed into “Unicorn,” although I can’t really understand how one would do that.

It’s kind of like the new “Winnie the Pooh” movie: there’s always a need for a new story, apparently. It makes me realize how unusual the Peter Jackson/Tolkien movies are.
