New TinTin Movie Features Seamen, Unicorns

When we first heard about Steven Spielberg directing Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn, we wondered if TinTin would be a racist gay man. Seeing as the film is slated as a Christmas-time family film, probably not. But the movie still features fisting, voyeurism, and sailors and even if he doesn’t kiss a dude on the lips, every friend of Dorothy will know that under that ginger hairdo and sweater beats the heart of a homo. Who else but a gay man would risk his life investigating a unicorn?

    Is that Tilda Swinton as Tintin?

  • Jeffree

    @Jim: LOL—yes it sure as hey could be her! (I’ve had a crush on her for a long timd). Such an interesting face

    And yessiree, that whole chasing unicorns thing is smelling gayish to me too.

    Will I be forced to go see this? Yes, my guy has a sh-+load of his TinTin books from when he was a lad. If they had TinTin jammies when he was growing up, I’m sure he had them — footies & all.

    Wow that looks like a video game… I’ve got mixed feelings :-/

  • Robbie K

    I loved the books when I was a kid..should have been a sign :)

  • MikeE

    so no one here has ever actually READ any Tintin books?
    That’s “La Licorne” (the Unicorn) as in the SHIP that goes by that name. Nothing to do with single-horned magical creatures.

    And it looks like a video game because it’s one of those motion capture ANIMATED films. So, no, it’s not Tilda Swinton.
