7. 'The Adventures of Tintin'
DreamWorks | Paramount
The animation alone is worth a trip to the multiplex, thanks to the advances in motion-capture technology. Tweens -- especially boys and built-in fans of the iconic comics -- will adore this globe-trotting adventure following that wunderkind investigative reporter Tintin (Jamie Bell) and his intrepid dog, Snowy. High-stakes action, pirate-ship brawls, and sunken treasures are all on dazzling display in this whirlwind adventure that's a must-see for the 9 & up set.
