The Pirates! Band of Misfits (3D)

What it's about:

In The Pirates! Band of Misfits, Hugh Grant stars in his first animated role as the luxuriantly bearded Pirate Captain - a boundlessly enthusiastic, if somewhat less-than-successful, terror of the High Seas.

With a rag-tag crew at his side (Martin Freeman, Brendan Gleeson, Russell Tovey, and Ashley Jensen), and seemingly blind to the impossible odds stacked against him, the Captain has one dream: to beat his bitter rivals Black Bellamy (Jeremy Piven) and Cutlass Liz (Salma Hayek) to the much coveted Pirate Of The Year Award.

It's a quest that takes our heroes from the shores of exotic Blood Island to the foggy streets of Victorian London. Along the way they battle a diabolical queen (Imelda Staunton) and team up with a haplessly smitten young scientist (David Tennant), but never lose sight of what a pirate loves best: adventure!

What the critics thought:


"A delightful romp whose varied pleasures should please kids all along the age spectrum."
- John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter


"After dipping its toes into pure CG animation for Arthur Christmas, Aardman integrates its feted old-school stop-motion technique with top-drawer visual effects to create the irrepressibly amusing The Pirates! Band of Misfits."
- Leslie Felperin, Variety


"It doesn't look expensive; nor does it look cheap. It just looks the way Aardman films should, which is glorious."
- Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph

Every Thing Will Be Fine is a gorgeously assembled piece of art that fails hopelessly to work as a compelling film. Read More »
