So Mr. Spielberg and Mr. Jackson have made their Tintin features and the first images are out:
... “With live action you’re going to have actors pretending to be Captain Haddock and Tintin,” says Peter Jackson. “You’d be casting people to look like them. It’s not really going to feel like the Tintin Hergé drew. It’s going to be somewhat different. With CGI we can bring Hergé’s world to life, keep the stylised caricatured faces, keep everything looking like Hergé’s artwork, but make it photo-real.” ...
#1 How many people know who Tintin actually is?
#2 And how big a market for Motion Capture is there, anyway?
Cameron made it work in "Avatar", but Zemeckis didn't break any box office records with "Christmas Carol". We'll find out soon enough.
