In tribute to Tintin's creator, world premiere of Hollywood movie comes to Belgium
BRUSSELS (AP) ' If Tintin were more than a cartoon and movie character, he would have been pushing and shoving amid all the other hometown reporters lining the red carpet for the world premiere of Steven Spielberg's "The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn."
Instead, the proverbial intrepid reporter and his creator, the late Herge, were the real stars of Saturday's premiere opening where Belgian Princess Astrid is a proper replacement for all the American movie royalty usually present at a Hollywood premiere.
The movie will roll out first across Europe and elsewhere before hitting the United States by the Christmas movie season.
