Trailers - Pirates! & Arthur Christmas
The first trailer for Aardman animation's The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists has been released and already received rave reviews from those who have watched the promo online.
Due to be released in the UK at the end of March next year, the adventure animation features the voice of Hugh Grant as the Pirate Captain, with Martin Freeman, David Tennant, Salma Hayek, Jeremy Piven and Brendan Gleeson all lending their voices to the project as well.
A statement on Aardman official website describes The Pirates as a ‘delicious confection of piracy on the high seas’. Aardman co-founder Peter Lord has returned to directing duties for the first time since Chicken Run, alongside Jeff Newitt.
The comedy adventure is based on two books from the cult 'Pirates!' series by Gideon Defoe who has also penned the screenplay.
On Thursday, two versions of the first trailer for the film were released, one for the US market and a considerably better version for UK audiences.
Check out the all-singing, all-dancing UK trailer below:
