Don't Watch: Official Trailer for Jack Black's Gulliver's Travels

Gulliver's Travels Teaser

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!

You can watch the Gulliver's Travels trailer in High Definition on Apple

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.

  • wrongturn687
    Okay I'll admit I kinda chuckled at that last bit in the trailer, but this deffentially looks like your typical Fox christmas, family, comedy so you know it will still make alot of $.

  • MikeL

  • eric
    doesn't look bad...the trailer is just boring...
  • Manda
    As long as there's less back story and more of the funny giant guy, I'll watch it.

    Looks like a great movie to see if you are really really bored or brought a hot girlfriend and just want to make out during the entire movie. Or you are below the age of 20. Definitely has the Night At The Museum vibe minus the "cool the museum is coming alive" thing.
  • tim dahill
    I think it looks good I mean Jack Black and Jason Segel I'm in! also @4 she didn't wanna drop out of IM2 fox pulled a fast one on her with her contract
  • crumb
    looks entertaining, but nothing more. i'd watch it on tv.
  • FancyMonocle
    You guys are insane. This looks like a train wreck.
  • Suicidal Optimist
    The piss poor edited trailer might not do the movie justice. I'll wait until they release a second (hopefully better) trailer of this. I like Jack Black; I'll give this a chance. If not at the movies at least on Netflix. P.S.: The "Don't Watch" part in the headline always makes me wanna beat you to a pulp, Alex.
  • sickdoghats
    this looks fun i think it will be a good watch.
  • Jimmy Love
    HA HA good till 3D popped up.
  • shadow
    Complete and utter garbage, everyone involved should be ashamed of themselves, especially the visual effects supervisor.
  • Craig
    I was looking forward to this, but now I might've changed my mind. At first I was thinking that they were taking a long time setting up the story. In the trailer, he seemed to be spending a lot of time back in the "real world". Then it turns out that was by far the best part of the trailer. I still say Jason Segel should be playing Gulliver.
  • Spider94
  • Well done Jack...keep making crap movies...
  • ryderup
  • Carlo
    Looks like it will be good for a laugh!
  • AC
    should make for a good laugh, im not going to write it off.
  • DoomCanoe
    doesn't look to bad. Almost par with Year One which wasn't great but was a decent filler movie. i do like how the trailer doesn't give away ANY of the story, just shows how he is going to cover a story and gets swept into another world. least going in i don't know whats gunna happen other then that he is going to meet aton of midgets
  • Nada Nuff
    Doesn't look good at all.
  • I'd actually watch it, looks properly stupid, but I'd still watch it.
  • nai_D
    no come onnnnnn it looks cool like a dumb cool
  • Antioch
    whatever guys~ it looks like it will be funny- even if Jack Black is off sometimes, Segel usually chooses good scripts. We might be pleasantly surprised!
  • yeah….anyways
    L to the A to the M to the E, whats that spell? Another Jack Black movie!
  • jjboldt
    Interesting....................I guess.
    Jack Black movie......What more can I expect Gonna Pass

  • deadpool 72
    looks alright,i 'd watch it for the sexy emily blunt.
  • Baz
    Why do they bother with crap like this, when so many good scripts never get the green. Hollywood is slowly becoming irrelevant.
  • ...not awfull, but little boring
  • Jezza
    Chris O'Dowd is a very funny man. Seeing him in this could be intriguing.
  • Julie
    ouch. haha! fox is DEPERADO!
  • Ramona
