Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children Releases Trailer
I can’t think of a better match for a movie based on the odd novel about a group of children with exceptional abilities than Tim Burton. On one level, the movie of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children could be looked at as a kind of superhero story (since they, like the X-Men, are unusual but want to be left in peace), but the tradition is so much older. It’s a fantasy adventure involving wonders and mysteries and the chance of something different just around the corner. (There was a graphic novel adaptation, but I didn’t think it was very good.)
Out September 30, here’s the movie description:
From visionary director Tim Burton, and based upon the best-selling novel, comes an unforgettable motion picture experience. When Jake discovers clues to a mystery that spans alternate realities and times, he uncovers a secret refuge known as Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As he learns about the residents and their unusual abilities, Jake realizes that safety is an illusion, and danger lurks in the form of powerful, hidden enemies. Jake must figure out who is real, who can be trusted, and who he really is.
It stars Eva Green, Asa Butterfield, Ella Purnell, Allison Janney, Terence Stamp, and Rupert Everett, with Judi Dench and Samuel L. Jackson, and the trailer is gorgeous:
