20th Century Fox has released 7 movie clips and a number of new images from director Rob Letterman’s (Monsters vs Aliens) Gulliver’s Travels. Starring Jack Black, Jason Segel, Emily Blunt, Amanda Peet, and Billy Connolly, the 3D live-action family comedy is based on the 18th century novel by Jonathan Swift.
While it’s clearly aimed at families, Gulliver’s Travels was co-written by Nicholas Stoller (Get Him to the Greek, The Muppets), so I’m hoping it has at least a few jokes aimed at the grownups. With a release date of December 25, we’ll know in two weeks. Hit the jump for the clips and the new images:
Here’s the official synopsis:
In a modern, 3D family comedy take on the classic tale, Jack Black is Lemuel Gulliver, a lowly mailroom clerk at a New York newspaper. After Gulliver bluffs his way into an assignment writing about the Bermuda Triangle, he goes there only to be transported to an undiscovered land, Lilliput. In this fantastical new world, Gulliver is, at last, a bigger-than-life figure — in size and ego – especially after he starts telling tall tales, taking credit for his world’s greatest inventions, and placing himself at the center of its most historic events. Gulliver’s position is enhanced even further when he leads his new friends in a daring battle against their longtime enemies. But when Gulliver loses it all and puts the Lilliputians in peril, he must find a way to undo the damage. Ultimately, Gulliver becomes a true giant among men only when he learns that it’s how big you are on the inside that counts.
