Ultimate movie for First Annual DSN Film Night?

Thanks to io9 and Garrett G, I just might have found the ultimate movie for the First Annual Deep-Sea News Film Night. Behold the glory of Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists! Yarr, ye stop-motion laddies! Also I ENTIRELY approve of David Tennant as Charles Darwin – because evolution is pretty much just wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey…stuff.

Hugh Grant, starring in his first animated role, is 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 do battle with the pirate-hating Queen Victoria (Imelda Staunton) and team up with a young Charles Darwin (David Tennant), but never lose sight of what a pirate loves best: adventure!
