The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists opens in cinemas this week, and you can watch an exclusive interview with stars Hugh Grant and David Tennant and director Peter Lord, right here.

Based on the novel by Gideon Defoe, the film follows the hapless Pirate Captain (Hugh Grant) on his mission to bag the Pirate of the Year award.
