I’m not a huge fan of this animation style (and no doubt it’ll be shown in 3-D — don’t get me started), but this trailer is undeniably entertaining, from Grant’s English pirate accent to the use of the Ramones. In fact, there’s little I don’t like about the trailer to this movie about a band of buffoon pirates, lead by Grant’s character, the Pirate Captain. (The movie also stars Jeremy Piven as the Captain’s rival, Black Bellamy, and Doctor Who‘s David Tennant as a young scientist.) Check it out below:
The movie opens in 2012, and judging by this trailer, this is simply going to be further proof that Hugh Grant — and now Hugh Grant’s voice — can really make me watch anything.
