Clay Pirates cross swords in new Band of Misfits trailer

It's nice to see that in this digital age, some folks are still sticking with the tried and true moviemaking tactics of old.

We don't see many claymation films these days, but when we do, they're usually from Peter Lord of CHICKEN RUN and WALLACE AND GROMIT fame. He's moving to the high seas with THE PIRATES! BAND OF MISFITS, and a new trailer for the film is below.

It looks like a fun time, and I'm sure if you're a fan of his previous films ,you'll appreciate this one. Though we do have stop motion films like CORALINE and THE FANTASTIC MR. FOX, claymation is well, all clay, and a lot harder to pull off. This wouldn't have been anywhere near as charming in CGI.

Extra Tidbit: I made a stop motion film when I was ten. I had Batman walk across the room and stack plates. It took me like three hours.

Always got a soft spot for good ol' claymation, or really any time someone eschews the conventions of modern computer animation in favor of working with real models and stop-motion puppetry.

Well I'll be...

That was pretty damn funny. Glad to see claymation isn't dead; that's an animation style that you can't help but appreciate.

Any news on whether this is 3D-filmed or upconverted? Because I'd be pretty impressed if it was the former.

Apparently it's 3D-filmed ! (As asserted by a site along the lines of realorfake3d.com). Agreed : Pretty impressive ! Can't wait
