A brand new trailer for hilarious stop-motion animated film "The Pirates! Band of Misfits" has been released. Making its way out via Yahoo! Movies, the fresh promo video is filled with various humorous scenes, including the ones which feature an ancient pirate doing a moonwalk dance. It also sees the luxuriantly bearded Pirate Captain, who leads a group of quirky ship crew in an adventure in and out of the sea.
In the movie, the Captain is described as a boundlessly enthusiastic terror of the High Seas. With a rag-tag crew at his side, the Captain has one dream to beat his bitter rivals Black Bellamy and Cutlass Liz to win the much coveted Pirate of the Year Award.
It's a quest that takes the Captain from the shores of exotic Blood Island to the foggy streets of Victorian London. Along the way, they battle a diabolical queen and team up with Charles Darwin, a haplessly smitten young scientist, but never lose sight of what a pirate loves best: adventure!
Directed by Peter Lord, "The Pirates! Band of Misfits" will open wide in the U.S. on March 30, 2012 and in the U.K. on March 28 next year. The voice cast includes Hugh Grant as the lead protagonist, Jeremy Piven and Salma Hayek as Bellamy and Liz respectively, Imelda Staunton as the Queen, as well as David Tennant as Darwin.
