Twentieth Century Fox has released the first trailer for Rob Letterman and Nicholas Stoller’s new film, Gulliver’s Travels. The movie stars Jack Black, Jason Segel, Emily Blunt, Romany Malco, and Billy Connolly and is one of the many films that will be fighting for your money this Christmas holiday season. Check out Black as the fabled Gulliver below…
Gulliver’s Travels is a contemporary adaptation of the popular Jonathan Swift novel. Jack Black stars as the title character who, while going on a routine business trip gets caught in a storm and washes up on the shores of a hidden island called Lilliput, the home to a population of very tiny people. In a short period of time he goes from enslaved prisoner to the land’s new hero.
To be completely honest this movie doesn’t look as bad as I thought it would. Adapting a story that’s been done several times before isn’t an easy feat but it seems like Stoller and Letterman may be on to something. Not only does it feature a top notch cast but the giant/mini-men special effects aren’t half bad.
Gulliver’s Travels will hit theaters in 3D on December 22, 2010.
