The Pirates! Band of Misfits Trailer

"We laugh in the face of danger!" Sony Animation has unveiled the first full trailer via Apple for Aardman Animation's new film The Pirates! Band of Misfits, another high seas adventure this time involving the Pirate Captain (as voiced by Hugh Grant). The rest of the voice cast includes: Martin Freeman, Brendan Gleeson, David Tennant, Salma Hayek, Jeremy Piven and Imelda Staunton. This looks like so much fun! I've ragged on Aardman before, as I hated Flushed Away and I'm not the biggest Wallace & Gromit fan, but I'm glad to see they're back making movies that just look fun and have that unique stop-motion Aardman style.

Watch the first official trailer for Aardman's The Pirates! Band of Misfits via Apple:

Pirate Captain is 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. Sounds fun. Co-directing the film is Peter Lord, of Chicken Run previously, and Jeff Newitt, from a script by Gideon Defoe. Sony will be bringing The Pirates! to theaters March 30th, 2012.

I actually laughed toward the end. I LOVED Chicken Run when I was a kid. I'm in.

This is the most 'acting' I've *heard* from Hugh Grant! For once he doesn't play his usual role 🙂

The British trailer is much, much better - Yarhh!

Not only is the trailer better, but the title is better as well. The Pirates! Band of Misfits. vs. The Pirates! In an adventure with Scientists.

"I'm not the biggest Wallace & Gromit fan". What?! How very dare you sir. @Namac Cheers, I was really disappointed until I saw that trailer.

Aardman are the best

Was funny in parts but then again I held off watching W&G for so long because the trailer was underwhelming. I have some faith in Aardman to carry this through.

Can we mention how insanely good Aardman is at claymation? Did you see those beards? IN.
