“The Adventures of Tintin”, which was directed by Steven Spielberg (“Lincoln”) and produced by Peter Jackson (“The Hobbit”) was a modest success, grossing $370 million worldwide. The two are switching roles for the next film, which both are now saying will be out Christmas 2015. Rumors are that “Seven Crystal Balls” and “Prisoners of the Sun” will be the basis of the second film. The first film featured the voices of Jamie Bell, Andy Serkis, Daniel Craig and Simon Pegg.
