If you like pirates, claymation, or family friendly movies, get your booty to the nearest theater this weekend! “The Pirates! Band of Misfits in 3D” movie sets sail today, April 27, and is chock full of 88 minutes worth of action, adventure, and plenty of PG-rated humor for a swashbucklin’ good time! Based on the Pirates! novels by Gideon Defoe, the movie sees down-on-his-luck Pirate Captain (voiced by Hugh Grant) and his ragtag crew face off for the ultimate treasure, the “Pirate of the Year” Award. Other talents who lend their voice to the cast of characters include Salma Hayek, Martin Freeman, Imelda Staunton, and Jeremy Piven.
If the UK-based stop-motion animation looks familiar, here’s why: the movie is from Aardman Animations, the same studio who has produced hits like Chicken Run, Flushed Away, Wallace and Grommet, Shaun the Sheep, and (depending on how good your memory is) the claymation seen way back when on Pee-Wee’s Playhouse.
Oh, and if you’re seeing the movie at a Regal, UA, or Edward Cinema, be sure to snag a mobile coupon good for $2 off the price of a hot dog! Mmm…hot dogs!
Arrrr, matey! Fun, merriment, and free games awaits ye at The Pirates! Official Movie website!
