Sorry, fellow Tintin fans. I haven’t posted here in about a year! But I haven’t been dead-just waiting. The truth is, there hasn’t been much word about Tintin 2 for ages.
But now, though I’m not sure where it came from, we have a date. The IMDB page for Tintin 2 (which still lists the next title as “Prisoners of the Sun”) sets the release date as December 16th, 2016.
Regardless of what stories are in the next film, 2016 may be a realistic release date. I hope it isn’t a bit early, since it doesn’t look like work on this film has gone very far at all. But at last Jackson has Middle Earth out of the way. Tintin 2 looks like a logical next project for him to take on-not only has he been looking forward to this project, but it is sure to make money around the world. I just hope they market it better in the US than they did the last film.
What do you guys think? Can we trust this date? Or is it as uncertain as the title? Personally, I think Prisoners of the Sun would be a great choice for Tintin 2. But we were led to believe years ago that the film would be a different story, and I still haven’t found any reliable source correcting that idea.
