Still, director Steven Spielberg, his visual effects supervisor Joe Letteri, and cast members Jamie Bell and Nick Frost had some more to share when they gathered in New York to talk to press about 'Tintin,' where they recounted the project's long path from page to screen and what Peter Jackson contributed in his role as a producer.

The London Film Critics' Circle has released their nominees this morning, with some surprising frontrunners. Tomas Alfredson's Cold War thriller "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" and Nicolas Winding Refn's pulpy blast "Drive" were the top nominees, with six nominations apiece, while Lynne Ramsay's chilling "We Need to Talk About Kevin" and Asghar Farhadi's emotionally devastating "A Separation" each picked up five nominations. Steve McQueen's sex addiction drama "Shame" and indie black-and-white silent thingee "The Artist" each secured four nominations. Sadly "Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star," was, again, overlooked.

Although he isn't talked about in the usual dialogue about top ten lists or awards consideration, Joe Letteri is one of the hardest working and most influential people in movies in 2011. As a visual effects supervisor at Peter Jackson's WETA Digital, he had a hand in two of this year's most discussed movies, creating the sublimely expressive Caesar in "Rise of the Planet of the Apes," and supervising Steven Spielberg's motion capture wonder "The Adventures of Tintin."
