Intrepid reporter Tintin and Captain Haddock set off on a treasure hunt for a sunken ship commanded by Haddock's ancestor.
At the beginning of the movie, when Tintin is having his likeness drawn, the other likenesses posted in the background are of characters featured in various Tintin books, and as shown in the inside covers of every Tintin book.
Barnacles! Someone's locked the door!
Tintin: Well, is there a key?
Captain Haddock: A key? Ah.
Captain Haddock: Yes, now, that would be the problem.
Captain Haddock: Mr. Jaggerman, top bunk in the centre, keeper of the keys. Careful, mate. He's a restless sleeper on account of the tragic loss of his eyelids.
When Sakharine first meets Tintin in the market, he never introduces himself. Yet later in Marlinspike Hall, Tintin says, "I'm looking for answers, Mr. Sakharine." He then continues to call him by name throughout the movie.
The opening logos for Paramount Pictures, Columbia Pictures, Nickelodeon Movies, and Amblin Entertainment play with no music.
