Don't Watch: Official Trailer for Jack Black's Gulliver's Travels
Fox has just debuted the first trailer on Apple for their holiday comedy Gulliver's Travels starring Jack Black as Gulliver, as well as Emily Blunt, Jason Segel, Amanda Peet, Billy Connolly and so on. As expected, this looks awful, like a completely uninspired and unoriginal take on the Jonathan Swift classic. The whole world of Liliput looks way too modernized and fresh, almost like Night at the Museum (which considering this is Fox, that's probably exactly what they were going for, as those movies have been financially success for them). I don't know about you guys, but I'm already not interested in seeing this. You've been warned!

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.
