'The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists' exclusive video
The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists has revealed a new video exclusively through Digital Spy.
The teaser clip sees the cast of Aardman's latest animated movie debate the benefits of being a pirate. Looting and cutlasses are at the heart of the argument, which spills over into violence before Hugh Grant's captain breaks up the scuffle.
Grant recently revealed that he was "a bit nervous" about voicing the Pirate Captain, saying that it took him some time to get the vocal intonations right.
"I thought I was timing the jokes right, but I kept thinking whether the voice was basso enough to go with this great big Pirate Captain," he explained.
"So we worked on that a bit. Then watching the stuff, in a way it's soothing because they're so clever with their animation, so much of the humour is in visual stuff, that the pressure felt slightly off me - it doesn't all completely depend on whether I land the line or not. That was helpful."
The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists, featuring Salma Hayek, Martin Freeman and David Tennant, opens on March 28 in the UK and on April 27 in the US under the title The Pirates! Band of Misfits.
