    New Tintin Trailer Reveals Spielbergian Animation

    Check out the new trailer for Steven Spielberg's The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn (December 23) below, for which star Daniel Craig wore a leotard for the performance capture. The question that Kris Tapley and I asked in our mid-summer Oscar Talk is: will the Academy consider this live action VFX (Avatar) or animation (Monster House)? Clearly the film is utterly stylized and "rendered," as they say in the trade, with no live action components, as "virtual" as Pixar's Cars 2. But performance capture, as live-action director Bob Zemeckis used it in Polar Express, Beowulf and A Christmas Carol, has not been considered animation...

    Ralph Fiennes Looking To Get Russian Again For 'A Month In The Country'

    Ralph Fiennes has pretty much done it all. Two-time Oscar nominee for "Schindler's List" and "The English Patient" has taken his skills into tentpole films, notably as Lord Voldemort in the "Harry Potter" franchise and less respectably as Hades in "Clash Of The Titans." He's done comedy ("In Bruges"), family films ("Nanny McPhee") and worked with a staggering array of top shelf directors including Steven Spielberg, David Cronenberg, Kathryn Bigelow, Stephen Daldry, Fernando Meirelles, Neil Jordan, Anthony Minghella and Robert Redford (which reminds us, "Quiz Show" desperately needs a proper DVD/BluRay release). Hell, he's even set to make his...
