Wednesday marks International Talk Like A Pirate Day. To mark the occasion, here are 10 of the best on-screen swashbuckling adventures...

Pirates are nothing new on the big screen. During the Golden Age of Hollywood of the thirties and forties, pirates ruled, with stars like Errol Flynn and Douglas Fairbanks sailing across the high seas and into silver screen legend.

But some of best cinematic buccaneers are recent ones. Only this year, Hugh Grant was the voice behind the Pirate Captain in Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists.
