Director Steven Spielberg has proven time and again that his movies can compete at the box office. Next December, though, we'll find out how he competes against himself when two of his movies open within five days of each other. Spielberg's 3-D, animated adaptation of The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn opens on December 23, with the director's adaptation of War Horse following on December 28.

If that seems confusing, the movie's official synopsis will clear it up. read the synopsis >>
