Fox has released a new trailer for Tim Burton’s Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. And it’s everything you’d expect from a Tim Burton production.
Based on Ransom Riggs’s book of the same title, Tim Burton’s Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children could probably be retitled as Tim Burton’s X-Men. It also features a bunch of children that have special abilities, with each one sporting a unique power.
Miss Avocet, Miss Peregrine’s former teacher and the headmistress of a similar school, will be played by Dame Judi Dench. Burton explained: “In the peculiar world, women are the protectors. Miss Avocet is the head of another peculiar school. But, much like the bird in her name, she’s a bit more of a nervous, flighty energy than Miss Peregrine.”
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.
Starring Eva Green, Asa Butterfield, Ella Purnell, Allison Janney, Terence Stamp, Rupert Everett, with Judi Dench and Samuel L. Jackson.
Directed By Tim Burton.
The movie opens September 30th.
