Tim Burton possesses a special brand of madness that make his films at once frightening and magical. Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children is the latest film to come from that enigmatic mind, and perhaps the best example of his unique mindset since Dark Shadows.
Adapted from Ransom Riggs‘ 2011 novel, Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children follows 16-year-old Jacob Portman as he discovers a mysterious island populated by a group of orphans with special (and unusual) abilities. They live under the caring eye of Miss Peregrine, but when dark forces threaten the children, Jacob must take a stand and defend his newfound friends.
Eva Green is the star face of the piece, reuniting with Burton for the role of Miss Peregrine. She is joined by young talents Asa Butterfield as Jacob and Ella Purnell as Emma Bloom.
Also starring are the likes of: Samuel L. Jackson, Judi Dench, Terence Stamp, Chris O’Dowd, Allison Janney, Kim Dickens, and Rupert Everett.
Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children will be released on September 30 and you can view the new trailer below:
