> Tintin: 10 teasers for Steven Spielberg's blockbuster
Spielberg revealed that he was led to the character during promotion for his first Indiana Jones film.
"So I became fascinated and asked to see a book and discovered Hergé for the first time."
Jackson's visual effects company Weta helped bring the movie to life, with the Lord of the Rings director - a life-long Tintin fan - standing in for Captain Haddock in early test footage.
Jamie Bell, Daniel Craig, Andy Serkis, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost star in the movie, which is written by British trio Steven Moffat, Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish.
The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn will open in UK cinemas on October 26 and December 21 in the US.
