Video: Peter Jackson and Steven Spielberg discuss their collaboration on 'The Adventures of Tintin'

One of the most exciting and unique movies coming out this year is The Adventures of Tintin. A joint collaboration between Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson, the film recreates the classic comic series, which has sold 350 copies worldwide, using the same motion capture technology that was used to create Gollum in Lord of the Rings and that big gorilla in King Kong. We knew that Spielberg was director and Jackson producer, but it looks like the collaboration goes even deeper. THR interviewed the duo and it appears like they collaborated on set every day. 

The Adventures of Tintin is set for a Dec. 21, 2011 release. You can find a really good trailer here


The Adventures of Tintin trailer - Spielberg directs a motion-capture mystery

I know next to nothing about Tintin, his adventures, or this upcoming collaboration between Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson. After seeing the trailer for The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn, however; I've gone from 0 to 60. The story looks dark and gripping. It's been a while since we've had a good mystery movie in theaters.

Ha! Close Encounters of the Daft Punk Kind (video)

If you've never seen Close Encounters of the Third Kind, I don't recommend watching this until you do. Not because it will spoil much, but not even Steven Spielberg and John Williams can top Daft Punk's electronic madness. This video should serve as a warning: if we don't pump out the beats, we're gonna get intergalactically creamed when we jam with our space bros.

New J.J. Abrams/Spielberg SUPER 8 teaser trailer arrives (video)

These videos keep getting taken down, but here is the teaser trailer for the upcoming Steven Spielberg produced and J.J. Abrams directed action flick, Super 8. It debuted with Iron Man 2 at midnight last night. The title refers to the brand of the 8 mm camcorder that supposedly records the event. This appears to be a merger of Spielberg style action films and J.J. Abrams Cloverfield project (a favorite of mine). Abrams is very hot right now, producing last year's Star Trek and a number of successful TV shows including Lost, Fringe, Felicity, Alias, and the upcoming series Undercovers. He also wrote Joy Ride and Armageddon. Not bad.

This looks fun, though Deadline reports that it hasn't begun shooting yet. Super 8 is scheduled to hit theaters next summer. What do you guys think?
