Blistering Barnacles!

Business of Movies - III

When Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson teamed up, one thing was for sure - the creation of a masterpiece. But, no one expected them to bring back Tintin to life. Both Speilberg and Jackson were masters of sci-fi movies and have produced one of the best Hollywood flicks. Be it E.T, Jurassic Park, King Kong or The Lord of Rings - use of VFX was best of its time and all had one thing in common: innate use of graphics. So, when I heard they gonna produce an animated movie - I was surprised!


But animation in movies have stood the test of time and its global appeal has made it all more lucrative to movie producers. It is interesting to see the businesses animated movies have done: Toy Story 3 ($1,062,984,497), Ice Age: Dawn of Diosaurs ($887,773,705), Shrek 2 ($880,871,036)..etc and this means serious business! The existing fanbase of Tintin makes the proposition more attractive. An interesting storyline and much interesting presentation is what they needed.

India is proving to be an important base for Hollywood. It is astonishing to notice that the Potter series, Avatar, Kung Fu Panda, etc have raked millions and performed better than the more touted Bollywood flicks.  This was the reason why Fox Studios released its much hyped movies - Rio with 217 prints, Kung Fu Panda with 146 prints. This is primarily due to the growing popularity of Hollywood cinema in Multiplexes and 3D has fueled the growth higher.

This will also be the first time that a Hollywood movie (The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn) would be released in India over a month ahead of its opening in US! The response recieved from the trailers have been extremely positive. This motivated the distributors to showcase it across 380 screens (in 2D & 3D), the ever highest for any animated movie in India till date! Also the dubbed version in Hindi will find viewers in Tier-2 & Tier-3 cities.     

The movie has released in the same day as the much anticipated Hindi movie Rockstar and it would be all exciting to witness how Tintin fares against Rockstar.
