Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children FIRST TRAILER
Twentieth Century Fox can today reveal the first trailer for Tim Burton’s MISS PEREGRINE’S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN. Based on the bestselling novel by Ransom Riggs, MISS PEREGRINE’S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN stars Eva Green, Asa Butterfield, Chris O’Dowd, Ella Purnell, Allison Janney, Rupert Everett, Terence Stamp, with Judi Dench and Samuel L. Jackson and will arrive in UK cinemas AUTUMN 2016.
We get a special school for special kids with special powers. We get an entry-level character meeting the kids and learning about their world, a young man (Asa Butterfield) who discovers that he is special and can/must protect the other charges. And we get a Professor Xavier-ish mentor (Eva Green) who is removed from the equation when danger strikes leaving the young charges to fend for themselves. The good news is that the film is written by Jane Goldman, who co-wrote the best X-Men film to date (X-Men: First Class) and co-wrote the likes of Kick-Ass, The Woman in Black, and Stardust.
From visionary director Tim Burton, and based upon the best-selling novel, comes an unforgettable motion picture experience. When his beloved grandfather leaves Jake clues to a mystery that spans different worlds and times, he finds a magical place known as Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. But the mystery and danger deepen as he gets to know the residents and learns about their special powers…and their powerful enemies. Ultimately, Jake discovers that only his own special “peculiarity” can save his new friends.
