Mumbai, June 28 -- Tintin will hit the big screen in India six weeks before he makes his entry in the US. In a bid to capitalise on the Indian fan base, the makers of the Hollywood flick, The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn, have decided to release the film here earlier, even if it means risking global piracy.
Directed by Steven Spielberg, the 3D film releases across 400 screens in India on November 11, while it is slated for a Christmas release in the US. "Tintin is widely popular in India and we get a clear week then as there are no other big releases at the time. Mr Spielberg was willing to give us the date, but, at the same time, we'll have to take utmost care to avoid piracy," says Kercy Daruwala, MD, Sony Pictures India.
