'Tintin' Posters Unwrapped

The international and the North American posters for Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson's first Tintin movie, made in CGI, hit the Net on Monday.

Tintin is a comic strip created by a Belgian artist named Herge that appeared in weeklies and later was collected in book form back in the 1920s through 1970s. Kind of like soccer, the book was, and remains, hugely popular almost everywhere in the world except the U.S. and the most savage parts of Canada.

The two posters show a distinct approach for the two markets (notice how on the international poster the globe is squarely focused on Europe) and many are watching how American audiences will take to the movie featuring this European hero.
