'The Adventures of Tintin'

Posted: Updated:

When Steven Spielberg made "Raiders of the Lost Ark," a lot of the European press compared it to a series of kids  books called "Tintin."

He got interested and bought the rights, but then went off and did a ton of other movies.

Then he and director Peter Jackson struck up a friendship because Jackson was a huge "Tintin" fan. Now, their collaboration, "The Adventures of Tintin," is in theaters.
