In about two weeks, Peter Jackson and Steven Spielberg's "The Adventures Of Tintin," the long-awaited big screen adaptation of Herge's beloved comic creation, will begin its worldwide onslaught, being released in pretty much every major overseas territory. And while we initially had our reservations about 3D motion capture being utilized for the production it's clear that the filmmakers, along with WETA are lightyears beyond the lifeless, deadeye look that Robert Zemeckis toiled with over the course of three lacklustre films.

Continuing to build buzz for the movie, five clips and a few making-of videos have landed online today giving us the biggest window yet onto the film, and so far it looks like it's exactly the globe-trotting, witty adventure we've been waiting for. Led by a cast that includes Jamie Bell, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Toby Jones, Andy Serkis and Mackenzie Crook, the story will find Tintin and his pal Snowy looking for Captain Haddock’s ancestor’s sunken ship which will take them on a journey they likely didn’t bargain for. The tone here, as we've said before, is not too far removed from "Indiana Jones" in the more action-heavy spots (the Snowy clip and rowboat sequence below), but it's also infused with a sly sense of humor which doesn't surprise us one bit, considering the script comes from the pens of “Doctor Who” writer Steven Moffat, Edgar Wright and “Attack The Block” writer-director Joe Cornish.

All told, "The Adventures Of Tintin" is brimming with life, color and the unabashed sense of fun that we'd expect from Jackson and Spielberg. Check out the footage below and keep your eyes peeled because, yes, that's Daniel Craig visiting the set of the movie. The film hits the U.K. and elsewhere on October 26th, and the U.S. on December 21st. [Digital Spy/DH]
