Tease Me, Baby! - The Pirates! Band of Misfits

NOTE: This article was originally posted by me on TheWebsiteOfDOOM.com

Aardman Animations are akin to Pixar, in my eyes, for the level of quality output they provide. From Wallace & Gromit's many adventures to Chicken Run and more, you can always rely on them to give us an enjoyable movie.

This movie, which judging by how it's titled could be the first of many, has an all-star cast to make any film jealous. Hugh Grant, Brendan Gleeson, Salma Hayek, Brian Blessed, Martin Freeman, David Tennant, Imelda Staunton, the list goes on and on and on.

And the animation? Woah, moma! Seriously, I'm very excited about this. Just watch below and you'll see why.



- He's Got A Peg For A Nose!


Look!



Brilliant! Not to mention all the other characters who just look both ridiculous and amazing at the same time. The design on these guys is impeccable.

- Lew Zealand Would Be Proud




Pow! Right in the kisser.

- Holy Crap! Look At That!




Awesome!

- Here's To What Will Undoubtedly Be An Awesome Movie




Huzzah!

Yeah, normally with these I like to be witty or sarcastic and make generally interesting comments (I think) about the trailer. But I have very little to say other than; "wasn't that cool?". It inspires child-like glee within me.

I mean, sure, the use of The Ramones was an inspired choice for what will be an anarchic joy-ride of a film. But I feel like a kill-joy even mentioning that. This trailer doesn't need critiquing. The movie just needs our money.

Here. Take it. Please! *holds out notes*
