?Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson were announced to be co-directed a CG Tintin movie for years now. This project would be big news if Tintin weren’t a Belgian comic strip that no one in America has ever given a shit about; Europe I’m sure is wetting their pants in anticipation. But now that the first look at the CG Tintin has been revealed, are their pants wet with pleasure? Dry in horror? Moist with ambivalence? These are rhetorical questions, because I don’t give a shit. If you happen to be interested and thus foreign, FilmDrunk has a couple more pics.

Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others.
