Get strapped down with Jack Black in this poster for Gulliver's Travels

05.10.2010

A lot of you may have forgotten about GULLIVER'S TRAVELS.

It's an easy thing to do when there's been zero news on it for awhile now.

But wait! The people over at Empire have spotted a giant outdoor display of Jack Black tied down by the Lilliputians as Gulliver. This was found on their first day of Cannes, which we should have some coverage of coming your way soon.

Just to refresh, the newest installment of GULLIVER'S TRAVELS stars Black, Jason Segel, Emily Blunt, Amanda Peet, TJ Miller, Romany Malco, Billy Connelly, and Catherine Tate and is directed by Rob Letterman (MONSTERS VS. ALIENS). The film is due out and in 3D just in time for Christmas on December 22, 2010.

Here's our synopsis:

"In this contemporary re-imagining of Jonathan Swift’s classic tale, Jack Black stars as Lemuel Gulliver, a struggling writer who works as a mail delivery person at a major newspaper. To impress the travel editor, Gulliver finally ventures into uncharted waters – on a boat bound for the Bermuda Triangle. But the storm-tossed voyage lands him on a very different kind of island, one populated by a tiny civilization known as Lilliputians. After a rocky beginning, the gargantuan Gulliver becomes an inspiration to his new 6-inch-tall friends and they begin to learn from one another. Leading the Lilliputians to a victory over their neighboring island nemesis, Gulliver must still combat a mechanical giant – and come to terms with his own shortcomings – to finally emerge from his own little world."

Extra Tidbit: Who's looking forward to this?

Meh...

...it'll be fun at least. Sure it probably isn't a decent way to show source material respect, but then again, this tale can be told a dozen more times. I like Jack Black. This could fail...but it could also be funny and work as an adventure movie. Note : I had NO idea this gig was happening. Zero clue.

...Also

I fucking hate the phrase "Contemporary/Modern re-imagining" because it usually means "modern day bastardisation"

To be honest, I'm happy to see Jack Black prat his way through a comedic version than watch somebody make a crap dramatic version.

I mean a decent genuine dramatic update would be fine, but at least you know what you're getting with this (Jack Black in a daft scenario with some average jokes and a happy ending with a lovely "message" at the end).

I just wouldn't want the disappointment of a crap-but-genuine attempt. Does that make any sense?

Although admittedly I have no reason as to

Although admittedly I have no reason as to why I would instantly assume an updated version would be crap.

Where the hell did this come from? I've never even heard of this film before. There was news on this? Really? When? And with Jack Black? I'm a bit stupified. How the heck did Jack Black end up as Gulliver? It boggles my mind.

Fuck you, Rob Letterman

A true insult to the novel and Jonathan Swift. Not to mention Dave Fleischer's 1939 animated film.

Unfortunately, you know this shitty movie is probably going to pull in over $300 million.

*shakes head in disgust*

I like Jack Black. That doesn't mean he belongs in a film like this. He's not suited for it. Do you know how fucking stupid and ignorant you are? Holy shit...

Maybe you should chill out Paulie. Just because someone has a different opinion from you doesn't mean they're "fucking stupid and ignorant"

This poster is worse than any generic "floating heads" poster. Most unoriginal poster ever.

What kind of giant? What? WHAT? ... what?!

Oh god.

Glad to see Hollywood is on its way to shitting on another classic book. There could def be a cool way to do this movie but it would be with an imaginative director like Guillermo del Toro or Terry Gilliam, not Letterman. While an adaption would always have to use humor ardently (the book itself is very satirical and has some shit humor, etc), this is the wrong story for a jack black comedy.

Is Jack Black's head really disproportioned to his body in this film, or is it just the angle of that picture?
