Sony Pictures Animation has released the third, international trailer and new poster for The Pirates! Band Of Misfits
. The story follows Pirate Captain, voiced by Hugh Grant
( Music & Lyrics), on an improbable quest for the Pirate of the Year Award.
Here’s the official synopsis for the stop-motion 3D adventure:
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!
The voice cast also features Salma Hayek ( Across the Universe), Brendan Gleeson ( Harry Potter), Martin Freeman ( The Hobbit), and Jeremy Piven ( RocknRolla).
The Pirates! Band of Misfits will hit theaters on March 27th, 2012.
