The Pirates! Band of Misfits premiere in Sydney
Hugh Grant is back in Sydney, this time walking the red carpet for his latest film The Pirates! Band of Misfits. In the animated film Hugh voices the lead role along an all-star cast.
The last time Hugh Grant was in Sydney was back in December 2009 when he walked the red carpet for Did You Hear About the Morgans?
He really took his time today signing DVD’s, photos and notepads, as well as posing with some of the fans waiting for him.
There weren’t too many local celebs on the red carpet today, but I did see Wendell Sailor, the 2012 Young Talent Time kids and Richard Wilkins.
Hugh Grant was the main star walking the red carpet today. Other guests today were local celebrities Wendell Sailor, the Young Talent Time kids and Richard Wilkins.
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 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!
Hugh Grant, Brendan Gleeson, Jeremy Piven, Brian Blessed, Lenny Henry, Salma Hayek, Martin Freeman, Imelda Staunton, David Tennant and more.
