What Do You Think About the Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children Trailer?
Finally, the Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children trailer has arrived! The movie is based on the book of the same name by American writer Ransom Riggs. When it was announced a couple of years ago that his books would be adapted into a movie, and directed by none other than the master of the strange, Tim Burton, the fans were euphoric. Burton, famous for his dark and weird movies, such as Beetlejuice, Sleepy Hollow, Edward Scissorhands, and Corpse Bride, seems like a natural choice to direct this movie as well, given that it has a similar vibe to many of his previous movies. Also of note is that Jane Goldman, who co-adaptated Stardust, is handling the writing duties on the adaptation here. Shortly after the announcement of the movie and its director, the stars of the movie were also revealed – Asa Butterfield will play the role of the protagonist Jacob Portman, Eva Green is Miss Peregrine, Ella Purnell was cast as Emma Bloom, and many other fantastic actors will join them in various roles.
The movie tells a story about Jacob Portman, a 16-year-old boy whose grandfather is murdered by some kind of a creature. Following his death, Jacob goes to Wales in order to learn more about his grandfather’s life. Upon arrival, he finds that his grandfather lived in a decrepit orphanage for ‘peculiar children’. He meets many new friends, children who can fly, some are invisible, or super strong, etc. After some time spent with them, Jacob realizes that he too is peculiar and that he is the only one who can see the monsters attacking the world, who are also responsible for the death of his grandfather.
The movie is set for release on September 30, 2016 by 20th Century Fox.
