Director: Peter Lord, Jeff Newitt

Cast: Hugh Grant, Salma Hayek, Brian Blessed, Jeremy Piven, Brendan Gleeson, Imelda Staunton, Martin Freeman, David Tenant, Ashley Jensen, Lenny Henry, Russell Tovey

The Pirate Captain, despite his name, is not a very good pirate captain, and his crew is unlikely to frighten anyone, but their charm and determination go a long way.

So, after being teased by Black Bellamy, Pirate Captain decides to enter the ‘Pirate of the Year’ competition, hoping to win the big prize of being respected as a great captain.

Before he can complete his plan though, he must sail through the storm of disapproval from pirate-hating Queen Victoria, and enlist the help of super scientist Charles Darwin.

As with all the films of Aardman Studios, there’s no shortage of excitement, humour and daftness. Perfect for kids of all ages Hugh Grant gives a great performance as the voice of Pirate Captain. If you loved Wallace and Gromit or Chicken Run then you will definitely enjoy this!

Fascinating Fact: The film is adapted from the book by British writer Gideon Defoe.

StreetDance 2 (2012, PG)

streetdance-2-632

Director: Max Giwa; Dania Pasquini

Cast: Falk Hentschel; Sofia Boutella; George Sampson; Tom Conti; Stephanie Nguyen; James Michael Rankin

The plot might be predictable but the energy’s contagious in this invigorating sequel to Brit hit StreetDance. Featuring a host of fresh characters and jaw-dropping moves, it combines Latin and urban styles to fantastic effect.

You’ll be rooting for street dancer Ash as he guns for revenge after getting humiliated by American scene stars Invincible. Searching across Europe with manager Eddie, he puts together an elite squad to compete in the ultimate dance-off in Paris and thrash his cocky rivals.

But even though his new global crew are awesome, Ash reckons they need more edge: a quality they find in well and truly when they encounter salsa sensation Eva, and decide to create their own red-hot dance fusion.

Fascinating Fact: Algerian dancer Sofia Boutella, who plays Eva, has appeared in music videos for acts including Madonna, Rihanna, Usher, and Michael Jackson, and is best known as the face of Nike Women!

Mirror Mirror: The Untold Adventures of Snow White (2012, PG)

mirror mirror 2012

Director: Tarsem Singh

Cast: Julia Roberts, Sean Bean, Lily Collins, Armie Hammer, Nathan Lane

Determined to remain the fairest woman of them all, an evil Queen (Julia Roberts) locks up her beautiful daughter-in-law Snow White (Lily Collins).

The rivalry gets worse when Snow escapes to the woods and falls in love with a handsome prince, a man the Queen wanted to marry for his money. Snow White fights back challenging the evil Queen for the Prince’s affections and battling to regain the throne that is rightfully hers.

Lashings of hilarious comedy and a different story from the original successfully give a much-loved fairytale a fresh and brilliantly entertaining twist. A great new version of a modern classic – why not watch the original Disney animated version as well and compare the two?

Like this? Then also try these great films: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937, U), Red Riding Hood (2011, 12A), La Belle Et La Bete (1946, PG), Peter and The Wolf (1946, U), Jack Frost (1998, PG)
