Filmmakers Peter Jackson and Steven Spielberg, the creative forces behind new animated film "The Adventures of Tintin," hit the red carpet at the Comic-Con expo in San Diego.

Watch out, cinephiles.

Hollywood's most acclaimed movie makers Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson teamed up for a new motion-capture flick, "The Adventures of Tintin".

At San Diego's annual comic book expo Comic-Con the duo made a surprise appearance to show the audience a glimpse of their upcoming film -- a project that has been on director Spielberg's mind for the past three decades.

Steven Spielberg, Movie Director, saying

"There's a lot of time and other movies behind me, under this bridge between then and now, but it was worth waiting for, and in a sense, I think what delayed me was just the fate and destiny of waiting for technology to be born that would better equip Tintin than the live action medium, and I think that was why we waited so long."

The movie uses state-of-the-art digital camera technology and builds on innovations developed by director James Cameron on his smash hit film, "Avatar."

It's based on the comic books by Belgian artist Georges Remi, who is more famous under his pen name Herge and follows a young journalist and his faithful dog who find themselves on numerous adventures, solving mysteries.

Jackson is in the role of producer and said that he loves comic books, just like everybody else.

Peter Jackson, Movie Producer, saying

"I'm not different, I know that people must think that something's different, but I love the same movies they do, I've grown up with the same comic books that they have, and 'm just lucky that I've been able to make the films that I have."

But audiences have to wait to see the cutting edge animation film in theaters as the release of "The Adventured of Tintin" is only scheduled for December.
