Sunday, December 18th: ‘Tintin and the Lake of Sharks’

Tintin and the Lake of Sharks
Spectacle Theater (124 S. 3rd St., Brooklyn)

he 100% original plotline of this Tintin permutation speaks volumes about its production: along with Captain Haddock, our hero is sent to the Balkans to safeguard Professor Calculus’ transmogrifier. He ends up getting involved in the kidnapping of two innocent young children, resulting in a submarine chase featuring the shark-sub originally employed in Red Rackham’s Treasure. Frequently fun and stuffed with cliffhangers, the film was supervised by Greg, another French comic book artist of similar renown, working at Hergé’s studio at the time.
