Jack Black must have been a very naughty boy this year, because Santa Claus shoved a giant piece of coal right up his stocking. Gulliver’s Travels 3D, Black’s latest film, came in seventh at the box office, earning only $7 million since Christmas. To add insult to injury, the film lost out to Yogi Bear, a punch-line of a film that’s been in theaters since December 17th. Although I guess there’s really no shame in failing to match the raw-star power of Dan Aykroyd. (Vulture)

Jack Black Gets Wedgied By A Robot In New ‘Gulliver’s Travels’ Trailer http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/jack-black-gets-wedgied-by-a-robot-in-new-gullivers-travels-trailer/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/jack-black-gets-wedgied-by-a-robot-in-new-gullivers-travels-trailer/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 It's been awhile since high school English but I don't remember anything in Gulliver's Travels about a gigantic mechanized suit giving Gulliver an atomic wedgie. Yet that's exactly what happens in this new trailer. Strange though, because I would definitely have remembered that part. I also don't remember Foosball, Star Wars jokes, a Lilliputian KISS cover band, or general Jack Black fat-guy-fall-down hammery. But they're all in here. I feel so bad for the kid who rents this instead of reading the book before his big term paper is due. Check out the trailer after the jump...

Jack Black Experiences Bondage in ‘Gulliver’s Travels’ Trailer http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/jack-black-experiences-bondage-in-gullivers-travels-trailer/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/jack-black-experiences-bondage-in-gullivers-travels-trailer/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 A talking rabbit once told me, "If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all." I turned that rabbit into a stew because I loathe miracles of science, but its words always stuck with me. Having said that, FOX released the trailer for the new Jack Black film Gulliver's Travels. It's based off the classic Jonathan Swift novel you haven't read, and also stars Emily Blunt, Amanda Peet, T.J. Miller, and Jason Segel. Basically a man-child goes to the Bermuda Triangle for a fluff news piece and ends up getting into an S&M type situation with little people. It's like that scene in Night at the Museum when Owen Wilson and Steve Coogan come to life, if that scene was over 90 minutes long. Your kids are gonna love it. Pack juice boxes for them and a couple Xanax for yourself. Oops, there go those mean words. Check out the trailer after the jump. Gulliver's Travels washes into theaters December 22, 2010.
