The Adventures of Tintin set for March DVD/Blu-ray release

Update: Paramount emailed to say the US release date for The Adventures of Tintin on DVD and Blu-ray has not been announced yet. It will, however, be released in the UK on March 19th.

No specifications have been released yet, but i’ll post them when they become available.

To date Spielberg’s The Adventures of Tintin has made $360 million worldwide, although so far it’s only earned $70 million in the US. It’s still showing in 1000+ places though so it could edge closer to $100m before its box office run comes to an end.

Despite the disappointing (but expected) US interest, it was named best animated film at the 69th Golden Globes and the sequel is already being written by screenwriter Anthony Horowitz, with Peter Jackson aiming to begin shooting the motion-capture elements later this year after he’s finished shooting The Hobbit. Producer Kathleen Kennedy said last month that the sequel is on track for release in Christmas 2014 or summer 2015.
