Gulliver’s Travels is Phils. 1ST Box-Office Giant

20th Century Fox opens enormously big at 2011 as “Gulliver’s Travels” heaped up a gigantic 23 million gross nationwide at the box-office in its first two days alone. “Gulliver’s Travels” is Fox’s (Phils.) first release for the year that became the top-grosser among the foreign films that opened 2011.

Jack Black takes on the titular role of Gulliver who works as a mailroom clerk in a Manhattan newspaper. Imaginative and immensely open for adventure, Gulliver then bluffs his way to a writing assignment on the mysterious Bermuda triangle. His assignment then takes him to a miniature kingdom where he learned that size doesn’t matter to make a big difference. The movie also stars Emily Blunt, Amanda Peet and Jason Segel.

Jack Black remains to be a humongous comedic force as kids and adults laughed and roared at the movie’s crazy antics. Daniel Floresca, a 12-year old who is also a contributing writer at the Manila Bulletin’s Funpage shares, “I laughed so many times during the movie. I was amazed because the little people with the giant Gulliver looked so real on screen. I was also impressed by the appearance of the buildings and small objects in Lilliput. Kids should see Gulliver’s because it teaches lessons like don’t pretend to be someone that you’re not and that even small people can do big things if they really want to.”

Among the cinemas that recorded the biggest at the box office are Trinoma (P1.3M); SM Mall of Asia (P1.13); Powerplant (P929,543); SM North Edsa-The Block (P805, 820); SM Megamall ({772, 050); Greenbelt 3 (P747, 532); Alabang Town Center (P705, 365); Glorietta4 (P668, 616); Shang Cineplex (P655, 850); Eastwood (P652, 117).
