Both feature Daniel Craig, both are adaptations from very popular source material, and both have real shots at Oscars this year. But that’s where the similarities end for two major releases out now, David Fincher‘s bleak, big-budget take on the ubiquitous novel The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Steven Spielberg‘s The Adventures of Tintin, a 3D motion-capture film of Hergé‘s beloved Belgian comics.
