In an adventure with scientists!

Places to pillage, people to skewer.

“Hugh Grant, starring in his first animated role, is 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 do battle with the pirate-hating Queen Victoria (Imelda Staunton) and team up with a young Charles Darwin (David Tennant), but never lose sight of what a pirate loves best: adventure!”

“The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists” is Aardman’s most ambitious stop-motion film to date. They’re using the same beautiful hand-crafted technique that the company brought to the film Wallace and Gromit. The film is directed by Peter Lord and Jeff Newitt based on a script by Gideon Defoe. The release date is set for March 30, 2012.
