20th Century Fox has moved back "Gulliver's Travels" three days and will now open the Jack Black comedy on Christmas Day, the studio has confirmed to TheWrap.

The release date shift allows "Gulliver" to travel further away from Disney's "Tron: Legacy" (opening Dec. 17) and other movies that will be taking up 3D screens, including "Yogi Bear" and "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader."

"Gulliver's Travels" is now positioned to be the major family film opening on Christmas Day, one of the busiest days of the year for moviegoing.

In other Fox news, it seems that the underrated "Knight and Day" is the studio's highest-grossing 2010 release. The movie earned $262.3 million around the globe, proving that Tom Cruise is still one of the biggest movie stars in the world.
