Do you like pirate songs? Do you like stop-motion? Do you like stop-motion pirate songs from very funny movies by the studio that brought you Wallace and Gromit?
Plus, after the jump, actor Hugh Grant on playing the role of Pirate Captain in the latest Aardman film.
The newest Aardman stop-motion comedy feels a little different from the rest of their output, a little less dryly comic and more rambunctious than the very funny Creature Comforts or Wallace and Gromit shorts. But for the shift in style, it’s really, really funny (look for a review later this week).
Starring Hugh Grant as Pirate Captain, the film brings together a competition for pirate king, a slightly villainous Charles Darwin, a pirate-hating Queen Victoria, along with Salma Hayak and Jeremy Piven as pirates. The cast includes David Tennant, Martin Freeman, Imelda Staunton, and Anton Yelchin.
Here’s Mr. Grant discussing his role in the film.
The Pirates! Band of Misfits will be available tomorrow on DVD and 3D Blu-ray from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
