The Movie: War Horse, Steven Spielberg’s take on the battlefields of World War I, and The Adventures of Tintin, his second December release, based on the popular Belgian comics.
Why Go? For the director’s adaptation of Michael Morpurgo’s acclaimed book, and the international hit play; the 3-D performance-capture Tintin was produced at Peter Jackson’s WETA Studios in New Zealand.
The Movie: David Fincher’s cinematic version of Stieg Larsson’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was shot on location in Sweden and stars Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara.
Why Go? It is the long-awaited English-language treatment of the grisly crime novel. Added value: an original score by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross.
