Watch an exclusive clip from The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists online now

The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists is setting sail for multiplexes soon, and we’ve got our hands on an exclusive clip!

The scene in question features Hugh Grant’s Pirate Captain being welcomed into the home of Charles Darwin (voiced by David Tennant).

The real star of the scene, though, is the ‘manpanzee’ himself. Apes have form when it comes to stealing scenes in movies, and Darwin’s well-trained butler is no exception.

The footage also serves as a good example of the atmospheric sets and insane attention-to-detail conjured up (in miniature) by the hardworking animators.
