Movie News - The Pirates! Set Sail
YAR! Here be the latest trailer from the swashbucklin' land lubbers at Aardman... etc etc.
If you're anything like me (if you're a regular here then you probably are) then you'll undoubtedly be a fan of Aardman Animation's work such as Wallace and Gromit, Chicken Run and Flushed Away. Luckily for you Sony Pictures have sent through this brand new clip of The Pirates! Band of Misfits fresh from the azure waters of YouTube.
Watch it, if ye dare!
In The Pirates! Band of Misfits, Hugh Grant stars in his first animated role as the luxuriantly bearded Pirate Captain – a boundlessly enthusiastic, if somewhat less-than-successful, terror of the High Seas. With a rag-tag crew at his side (Martin Freeman, Brendan Gleeson, Russell Tovey, and Ashley Jensen), and seemingly blind to the impossible odds stacked against him, the Captain has one dream: to beat his bitter rivals Black Bellamy (Jeremy Piven) and Cutlass Liz (Salma Hayek) to the much coveted Pirate Of The Year Award. It’s a quest that takes our heroes from the shores of exotic Blood Island to the foggy streets of Victorian London. Along the way they battle a diabolical queen (Imelda Staunton) and team up with a haplessly smitten young scientist (David Tennant), but never lose sight of what a pirate loves best: adventure!
Director: Peter Lord
Cast: Hugh Grant, Martin Freeman, David Tennant, Imelda Staunton, Jeremy Piven, Salma Hayek, Brian Blessed, Brendan Gleeson, Russell Tovey, Ashley Jensen
