Coming from the Aardman Animations (the studio who gave the world Wallace and Gromit, Chicken Run, and Creature Comforts), The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists (known as The Pirates! Band of Misfits in the US) is a brand new, upcoming, stop-motion adventure, about a Pirate Captain and his attempts to win the Pirate of the Year award, and has just had its latest trailer released online (now available to view below).
Hugh Grant (Notting Hill) provides the voice of The Pirate Captain; who’s chasing the prestigious award, but held back by both the ineptitude of his crew, and constantly hounded by his competitors Black Bellamy (Jeremy Piven, Entourage), and Cutlass Liz (Salma Hayek, From Dusk Till Dawn).
David Tennant (Doctor Who) and Imelda Staunton (Chicken Run) will also be providing the voices of Charles Darwin and Queen Victoria respectively, with additional talent being provided by Brendan Gleeson (In Bruges), Brian Blessed (Blackadder), Martin Freeman (The Office), Ashley Jensen (Extras), and Lenny Henry (Harry Potter), for the film which is due to be released on March 28th in the UK, and March 30th in the US.
