The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists!

Genres Comedy, Animation

Film synopsis The Pirate Captain (Hugh Grant), the head of a terribly unsuccessful band of buccaneers, plans to win the award for Pirate Of The Year, despite being vastly under-qualified. A quest to plunder enormous amounts of treasure with the help of his most unassuming crewmate leads to a run-in with English royalty and the entire scientific community.

RE: The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists
Aardman can do no wrong in my eyes: f the Wererabbit of the greatest animated films, or even films, ever made. However, the ad has made me doubtful of this latest entry. Didn't laugh or snigger once and the characers do nothing for me. Looks nice though.  More

RE: The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists
I can see this film dying in the US, most Aardman films do sadly, The Yanks don't get the British wit and humour and in the case of Pirates it features Charles Darwin as a character which, considering Darwin is like Hitler for many Americans I cant see them taking their kids along to this.  More

RE: The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists
Seen the trailer for this last week before Puss in Boots, very excited, especially as it comes out just in time to be part of the wee man's Birthday celebrations. So an hour in Mookey World to get the kids well knackered and then a trip to the cinema afterwards.  More

RE: The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists
It's the deliberate PRness of their intervention that's the offensive bit - a nasty bit of emotional blackmail. I checked their claims at the time of the complaint and I'm not even sure what they do here - it's a very geographically limited disease. And they've also deliberately not gotten the point She joke is the pirates' incompetence and a visual timing gag.  More

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-bristol-16692022 Aardman are too nice. Don't they know tiny orgs are gagging for this kind of publicity with their faux outrage? The story was absurd when they complained - it's disappointing the nice people fell for it.  More

RE: The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists
Agreed with everyone else who's looking forward to this - the trailer was fantastic! I always look forward to Aardman projects - there's so much love in the films and you can tell how much the work means to them. And they are always really, really funny. Bring on next spring (that's ages away!) Now they've finished produciton on this, I'm waiting for Aardman to announce a new Wallace and Gromit film.  More

RE: The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists
I'm so pleased Aardmaan are doing this - it's one of those things where you assume the genius is utterly unadaptable until you see a marriage made in heaven. That trailer (which I'd missed till now) has just made my day   Can't wait - at the moment this'll be top of my list for anticipated films next year  More

I've been looking forward to this for months now. It could well be the film of next year.  More
