'Gulliver's Travels' Excels in Global Box Office


Jack Black


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.

    Please. This movie does not attract lots of people to see. That's what you get if you mess with classic story. It's stupid to put Jack Black as a leading role. Nobody likes him.
