Stop Motion Pirates > Jerry Bruckheimer Pirates

Aardman Animation, the guys behind Wallace & Gromit and Chicken Run, have a  new film called The Pirates! Band of Misfits, starring a barely-recognizable (which may be a good thing) Hugh Grant as the voice of the lead pirate. It opens next March, and the trailer is pretty self-explanatory. I guess it shouldn’t surprise me that a claymation-animated children’s film shows so much more wit, sophistication, and craft than Jerry Bruckheimer’s collection of tired clichés starring Johnny Depp juggling vases and ruining fancy dinner parties ostensibly aimed at adults. And yet for all the easy pandering they do in those things, they didn’t think to include a single fish wearing a pirate hat?
