Meet the Pirates!

pirates-still-1It stars Hugh Grant as the luxuriantly bearded Pirate Captain – a very enthusiastic if somewhat unsuccessful terror of the High Seas! – who dreams of winning the Pirate of the Year Award.

Backed by his useless crew, they set out on a quest that will see them plunder, use clever disguises, take on the pirate-hating Queen Victorian and even team up with Charles Darwin and his man-panzee!
