Check This Out: First New Teaser Poster for Gulliver's Travels
Found on the poster site IMPAwards (via SlashFilm) was this first teaser poster for Jack Black's Gulliver's Travels, that Fox is releasing in glorious 3D (ugh!) this December. Between this poster, where Black is tied up by the Liliputians, and the one we saw at Cannes, I'm guessing the story in this does not span beyond the island of Liliput. As most of you may remember, Jonathan Swift's Gulliver's Travels takes Gulliver to more places than just the island of Liliput, but I'm sure Fox is hoping for a franchise with sequels where we'll see more of those stories. Anyway, a new poster usually means a trailer is coming soon, so stick around for that!
Travel writer Lemuel Gulliver takes an assignment in Bermuda, but ends up on the island of Liliput, where he towers over its tiny citizens. This also stars Emily Blunt, Jason Segel, Amanda Peet and Billy Connolly.
Gulliver's Travels is directed by Rob Letterman, who is making his live-action debut after co-directing both Shark Tale and Monsters vs Aliens for DreamWorks Animation. The screenplay for this was written by Joe Stillman (Shrek, Shrek 2, Planet 51) and Nick Stoller (director/writer of Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Get Him to the Greek). This is based on Jonathan Swift's classic story Gulliver's Travels first published in 1726. 20th Century Fox is bringing Gulliver's Travels to theaters in 3D and 2D on December 22nd this holiday.
