"The Adventures of TIntin," Steven Spielberg's performance-capture-animation adaptation of Herge's boy reporter comics character, wasn't quite taken to the hearts of American audiences last year. Reviews were lukewarm, and, in a packed Christmas season, the film was crushed by the competition, hobbling to a fairly meagre $77 million domestically; not so great for a film that cost well, well north of $100 million.

With the buzz reaching deafening levels for "The Adventures of Tintin," Steven Spielberg's razzle dazzled 3D animated adaptation of the beloved European comic strip (including its giant overseas haul and recent inclusion in David Edelstein's Top 10 List for 2011), it's easy to forget that when the project was initially announced, the plan was for a series of films, with Peter Jackson and Steven Spielberg switching off director/producer duties for at least the first batch of films. But given both filmmakers' busy schedules, when can we even expect another entry? Producer Kathleen Kennedy (who started out as Spielberg's assistant before becoming one of his closest collaborators) says we can expect the next one fairly soon.

We're still about eight months (six months if you're in the U.K.) from seeing the long-awaited Steven Spielberg/Peter Jackson adaptation of the classic Hergé comic character Tintin, in "The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn" (the film opens internationally, where the series is a juggernaut, in October, before landing in the U.S. at Christmas). The motion-capture-fueled project was always planned as a trilogy -- the idea was that Spielberg would direct the first film, Jackson the second and another helmer, possibly Robert Zemeckis, the third. While the film's uncertain domestic appeal prevented the original idea of making all three back to back, word has come in that there's been some movement on the second film in the series.
