The trailer for Tim Burton’s “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” is everything we can expect from Tim Burton. Creepy, dark, yet charming and beautiful, and overall fascinating.
Based on the debut novel of the same name by American author Ransom Riggs, the movie tells the story of a teenage boy named Jacob Portman (played by Asa Butterfield).
Jacob follows a mysterious girl named Emma (played by Ella Purnell) down into a sunken ship and into a time portal back to the 1940s, and into a whole new world with some very strange “people”.
“We’re what’s known as … peculiar.”
It is there, in the part-fantasy, part-nightmare world, that Jacob meets the eponymous Miss Peregrine (played by Eva Green) and her orphanage for “peculiar” children. Think, headless children, children who are invisible, can float, have mouths on the back of their head, etc.
The world also comes with Tim Burton’s trademark whimsical imagery and dark undertones, as well as a wealth of monsters that Jacob will need to protect and save the peculiar children from. It’s so twisted, we like it ;)
Watch the somewhat creepy yet fascinating trailer below:
