WATCH: New Aardman Trailer – ‘The Pirates: Band Of Misfits’

The Pirates: Band of Misfits

By now, you’ll no doubt be getting used to the froth-on we Anglophenians like to display whenever there’s a new film trailer doing the rounds. And if you’re feeling at all sceptical about this, you’ve every right. Clearly the level of hysteria we tend to adopt is not sustainable unless you want to seriously endanger your own internal organs.

But, just for old times’ sake. OH MY WORD WILL YOU LOOK AT THIS THING! It’s got Hugh Grant in it! The people’s hero! And David Tennant! And Imelda Staunton! And it made me do a LOL. A big one.

What’s the best film Aardman have made so far? Tell us here.
