Jack Black has big dreams in the second trailer for Gulliver's Travels

11.02.2010

It's been a few months since we brought you a trailer for GULLIVER'S TRAVELS. Needless to say it didn't get a very warm welcome.

Maybe a second trailer for the film will help.

I can tell you that while watching I didn't tune out as much as last time. I got really excited seeing Jason Segel, Emily Blunt, Chris O'Dowd (Roy!), and Catherine Tate (Donna Noble!). The trailer still seems to have more than its fair share of cheesyness though: bad jokes, iPhone product placement, and the part where Black says he's invincible. Check out the video below and let me know what you think.

"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."

You know the Holocaust. Try to imagine the Jack Black version of that.

I love me some Jack Black/Segel but why is this happening?

bankable

You guys can complain all you want. This is going to make money. Sure its full of cheese but this is jack blacks type of cheese. He rocks this type of movie rather you like the movie material or not. This will appeal to a lot of people. I wont see it at the theater but i might watch it with my children on blue ray.

Is this Wild Wild West 2? Chris O'Dowd replaced Kenneth Branagh as British muttonchopped villain with giant mechanical thing.

Pirate Radio was good!

If that Bill Hicks bio-pic gets made Chris O'Dowd is the man for the job! Dan Fogler can be a young Sam Kinison and base it off of American Scream, oh wait I already have a draft. Mine will never be read. Boo hoo. Oh yeah Segel and Black in a big budget comedy!

This looks like the worst thing EVER. Poor Chris O'Dowd! Poor Catherine Tate! They deserved better break-out roles than this... :(

Looks like something I'll watch on cable one day. I really like Segal though, and it was cool to see Billy Connolly, so who knows, maybe it'll surprise me.

I LOVE "The It Crowd, It's brillant

The "It Crowd" has a fantastic cast & the plots are so absurd, they are terrific. If you haven't seen it I think the 1st 2 seasons are streaming through Netflix. I really is a grear hilarious show.

I thought the trailer was funny and I am a big fan of Black, Peet, Segel, and Blunt. I think it looks like a good time worth my time.
