Though I’m not afraid to do a sponsored post here and there (for products my family actually uses / values, that is), I’ve never been one to do any type of “giveaway” post on my blog. In fact, all such giveaway-themed emails usually go quickly into my recycle bin.
But I got one last week that struck me as different. So, for the first time ever on my blog, I’m actually doing a giveaway post because (a) there are ZERO strings attached (you don’t have to “like” an FB page, leave a comment, send a tweet, or slap your dog on the ass, etc…) and (b) it’s will allow my Ktown peeps to attend a preview of a movie that I actually want to see–one, I think the whole family might enjoy.
I’m speaking of The Pirates! Band of Misfits from Columbia Pictures. Have you heard about it yet? It features Hugh Grant in his first animated role and it looks fantastic. Check out the following synopsis:
In The Pirates! Band of Misfits, Hugh Grant stars in his first animated role as 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, 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!
