Australian DVD And Blu-ray Release For The Pirates! Band Of Misfits

The fantastic 2012 Aardman animated movie The Pirates! band Of Misfits (known also as The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists) is released on DVD and Blu-ray in Australia today.

In The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists 3D, Hugh Grant stars in his first animated role as the luxuriantly bearded Pirate Captain – a boundlessly enthusiastic, if somewhat less-than-successful, terror of the High Seas.
With a rag-tag crew at his side (Martin Freeman, Brendan Gleeson, Russell Tovey, and Ashley Jensen), and seemingly blind to the impossible odds stacked against him, the Captain has one dream: to beat his bitter rivals Black Bellamy (Jeremy Piven) and Cutlass Liz (Salma Hayek) to the much coveted Pirate Of The Year Award. It’s a quest that takes our heroes from the shores of exotic Blood Island to the foggy streets of Victorian London.
Along the way they battle a diabolical queen (Imelda Staunton) and team up with a haplessly smitten young scientist (David Tennant), but never lose sight of what a pirate loves best: adventure!

The film was adapted from the novel by Gideon Defoe and directed for Aardman and Sony Pictures by Peter Lord. It is available in four formats: DVD, standard Blu-ray, 3D Blu-ray and triple play DVD, Blu-ray and digital pack. It is available now from all major retailers.
