The Pirates! Band of Misfits

We've already gotten a promising glimpse at Aardman Studios' high seas animated adventure The Pirates! Band of Misfits in the form of a stateside trailer and another trailer from across the pond. Now we have yet another full length theatrical trailer showing off the stunning animation with Chicken Run director Peter Lord behind the camera. This animation style is truly unique, and is now a staple in stop-motion animation. Combine that with the dry British humor that inhabits most Aardman films like Wallace & Gromit, and you've got a promising family friendly film heading to theaters in March of 2012. See the new trailer below!

Here's the new trailer for Aardman Studios' The Pirates! Band of Misfits via Yahoo! Movies:

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.

This could be might even work in 3d, who knows? I love Aardman and their unique style, but 3d tends to a bit lifeless. Oh, and I've started a new film blog, any opinions and input is really welcome. I'm going to post all my favourite trailers on there too 🙂
