'The Adventures of Tintin': Unofficial Titles Sequence

A fan of Tintin has created an unofficial titles sequence for the upcoming "Adventures of Tintin" film, and it's pretty great.

It references all 24 of the books, including the ones that nobody read ("Tintin in the Land of the Soviets"). It's very elegant in the way it quotes from Herge's work. There's even a spoiler — the clip reveals the thief from "The Castafiore Emerald."

By the way, it looks like the title of the film has changed since I last blogged about it. The name no longer has "The Secret of the Unicorn" in it. Maybe they figured it was too much clutter. (But it worked so well for "Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole"!)
