The Adventures of Tintin Soundtrack by John Williams

The Adventures of Tintin OST

The official movie soundtrack album for The Adventures of Tintin contains eighteen tracks by composer John Williams (The Witches of Eastwick, Superman, Schindler's List, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, The Cowboys, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, A.I. Artificial Intelligence).

The last movie the world saw which was made with Steven Spielberg behind the camera was Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. It was a global success, critically and commercially. Although a lot of the fans of the previous Indiana Jones films were, well, disappointed with the latest installment, the movie nonetheless received mostly favorable reviews from critics. This was in 2008, which was three years ago. Besides making a documentary short, also in 2008 called A Timeless Call, Steven Spielberg didn't have any movie released since then.

Well good news for all Spielberg fans out there, you will get to see not only one but two Spielberg movies this year 2011. Both films will be released by the end of this year. One is called War Horse and the other one is of course The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn which is the subject of this page.

This is either going to be really good or fall flat on it's face. I remembering reading Tin Tin when I was younger. My dad had a bunch of the comics.
