I like the UK Trailer better.  Plus it gives a bit more detail about them traveling with Charles Darwin who doesn't even get a mention in the US trailer.

Also, the name was changed for US audiences.

If you haven't, READ THESE BOOKS!  This series is brilliant.  One of my all-time favs.  

I can't tell you how excited I was to hear that a) there was a movie coming and b) Aardman was doing it and 3) it's coming out on my birthday (unless that's changed)!


I'm a little bummed that they had to change the name for the American release.  However, I actually kind of prefer the American trailer.

That's because less than half the U.S. population thinks Charles Darwin is real.

i think everyone knows Charles Darwin is real, they just don't believe he was correct.

I'm a bit confused by the title change.

But that's the title of the original book.

Again, I can't stress enough:  GO READ THE BOOKS!!!  They're not kiddie material at all, BTW.  Brilliantly hysterical.

just finished the first book (slow day at work), and I have to wonder how they're going to handle all the 'inner dialogue' in the movie.  some of the funniest stuff if from what the pirates are thinking, or flavor text.

reading Adventure with Ahab right now, and it seems like they're combining bits of that into the movie.  They just encountered the Leper ship, which is in the trailer.

Watching the trailers, I'm not certain that there will be more than a loose connection to the books, really.  As you said, the descriptions and internal stuff is a big part of it.

However, since it's Aardman, I'm not too worried.

finished the Ahab Adventure, but not I'm kinda stuck-  I can't justify spending 9-10 bucks for each of the remaining 2 books since they're both less that 200 pages a piece.  hopefully they put them together in a bundle at some point like they did with the first 2 books.  still, it's a great read for the first two books.

Hmmm, seems as if they are trying to Americanize some of the humor, which sucks.  I also hope that Quiet Riot is just for the US trailer to appeal to the Shrek-liking audience and they don't actually use that crap in the movie.

yeah, Cum On Feel the Noize seems to be a bit out of place, but overall I liked the trailer and the way they're handling Mister Bobo so far.

I was hoping to go tonight, or even this weekend, but it looks like we'll have to wait.

Sigh.  I'm really looking forward to it.

I saw it.  It was well made and very clever but most of the really funny bits are shown in the trailer.  7/10 for me.
