Fans of the British animated show Wallace and Gromit should be excited for the upcoming movie The Pirates! Band of Misfits. Aardman Animations who did Wallace and Gromit did the animation for this new kids movie. Hugh Grant, in his first animated role, is the bearded Pirate Captain – an enthusiastic if somewhat not successful, terror of the High Seas. He’s got a rag tag crew (Martin Freeman, Brendan Gleeson, Russell Tovey, and Ashley Jensen) but is pretty blind to the obstacles in his way. The Captain’s dream is to beat his rivals Black Bellamy (Jeremy Piven) and Cutlass Liz (Salma Hayek) to the coveted Pirate of the Year Award.
Look for the high adventures in theaters on March 30th, 2012 in 2D and 3D.
