Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists exclusive Brian Blessed video

By
Aardman's latest animated movie The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists has released a new behind-the-scenes clip exclusively through Digital Spy.

Hugh Grant takes on the lead role of Pirate Captain, who enters the Pirate of the Year competition in a bid to defeat his rival Black Bellamy (Jeremy Piven).

Legendary Flash Gordon star Brian Blessed lends his booming vocals to the Pirate King character, host of the annual ceremony described as "rather like the Oscars".

"When I read the Pirate King I thought, 'This is me'," said Blessed. "He's totally, utterly larger than life. He's the most larger-than-life character in the whole story. He's about eight or ten feet tall and will knock anybody into the middle of next week."

The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists, featuring Salma Hayek, Martin Freeman and David Tennant, opens on March 28 in the UK and on April 27 in the US under the title The Pirates! Band of Misfits.
