Movie Spotlight For December 25th - Gulliver's Travels

Gulliver's Travels Jack Black
This version of Gulliver's Travels revolves around " a mailroom clerk (named Lemuel Gulliver who works) at a New York newspaper. After Gulliver bluffs his way into an assignment writing about the secrets of the Bermuda Triangle, he is hurtled to an undiscovered land, Lilliput. In this fantastical new world, Gulliver is 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. Gulliver only becomes a true giant among men when he learns that it's how big you are on the inside that counts."

Gulliver's Travels was directed by Rob Letterman and stars Jack Black, Jason Segel, Emily Blunt, Amanda Peet, and Chris O Dowd.

The movie hits theaters on Christmas Day.
