A Jack Black-starring comedy which takes on Jonathan Swift's classic opens to $24 million worldwide at the start of 2011.
Jack Black has been transported to the top of the global box office chart - "Gulliver's Travels" has kickstarted 2011 as the world's most popular movie. The big screen adaptation of Jonathan Swift's 18th century classic edged past Disney's "Tron Legacy", grossing $24 million outside the North American market to chart internationally at number one, while Jeff Bridges' sci-fi sequel is second with $23.7 million.
Comedy "Little Fockers", which maintained its title as America's top film for the second consecutive week this weekend, is at three with $22.5 million, boosting its worldwide gross to $175.2 million. "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader" and "The Tourist" round out the top five.
