Whenever a Steven Spielberg film comes out, you bet the world is paying attention. Especially if it's the director's first film in almost four years. Because of Spielberg's long hiatus, a lot of stock was put into The Adventures of Tintin. In a ton of ways, it represents a whole lot of new for Steven Spielberg; it's his first animated feature, and the first time he's ever gotten to play around with a virtual camera.
