Trailer Watch: Gulliver’s Travels

What do you get when you take a classic story, Jack Black, and update everything for modern times?

In a contemporary re–imagining of the classic tale, Jack Black stars as Gulliver, a big–talking mailroom clerk who, after he’s mistakenly assigned a travel piece on the Bermuda Triangle, suddenly finds himself a giant among men when he washes ashore on the hidden island of Lilliput, home to a population of very tiny people. At first enslaved by the diminutive and industrious Liliputians, and later declared their hero, Gulliver comes to learn that it’s how big you are on the inside that counts.

That could actually be sort of fun, though I am disappointed that this, like many versions of the story, only focuses on Liliput. I want to see how Jack handles being treated by giants, or sitting around talking with immortals. Maybe in the sequels.

Gulliver’s Travels opens in 3D and 2D December 22, 2010.
