The hit Aardman animated movie The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists will have its first showing on UK TV in September when it comes to Sky Box Office. The film, which features the voices of David Tennant and Hugh Grant, will begin showings on Monday 10th September.
From the Sky website:
Avast ye, as the crew behind Wallace & Gromit set a course for skulduggery and animated anarchy with author Gideon Defoe’s underachieving Pirate Captain (here voiced by Hugh Grant). Determined - if unlikely - to win the coveted Pirate of the Year award, the hapless buccaneer’s fortunes change when he runs into the young Charles Darwin (David Tennant). But while Lady Luck may be with him, pirate-hating Queen Victoria (Imelda Staunton) most certainly is not. A bounty of cutlass-sharp observation and yo-ho-ho for young lubbers and old sea-dogs alike.
The first showing will be at 6am on Monday 10th September on Sky Movies Box office..
