New Poster For Gulliver's Travel's Looks Very Familiar
Despite the fact that it stars a bunch of actors I like, including Jack Black, Jason Segel and Emily Blunt, I keep forgetting that Gulliver's Travels is coming out this Christmas-- and after finally watching the teaser trailer this morning, I realize I'm probably doing myself a favor. Yes, it's entirely possible there's a hilarious movie buried under there, but given that the trailer hits on every joke you expect from a movie about a man who lands on an island populated by tiny people, I'm not holding out hope for much.
As if to drive home the point that there's not enough originality here, a new poster for the film debuted today at Fandango, and it's not just alarmingly similar to the poster we already saw back in June, but it's pretty much the exact same image spotted at Cannes in May. Clearly they've found their best advertising image and they're running with it, but for a fantasy film all about the crazy possibilities of landing in a weird new world, they sure don't seem to have much to show us.
Check out the cropped version of the poster below and click on it for Fandango's (regrettably small) full-size version. Gulliver's Travels hits theaters December 22, and I really hope we start seeing some more promising stuff between now and then.
