Despite the middling reviews of his more recent effort, Tim Burton is banking on a win later this year with Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children. The adaptation of Ransom Riggs’ popular novel will see Burton delve into a new realm of fantasy, yet one that’s familiar to fans of his unique cinematic style. It’s that sinister appeal which takes command of this new gallery of posters, each dedicated to the cast of characters populating the flick.
Leading that cast is Ender’s Game star Asa Butterfield as Jake, a teenager struggling with a recent tragedy who comes across the titular abode and becomes enchanted by its otherworldly possibilities. The home is managed by Eva Green’s Miss Peregrine, who in a Professor X kind of way, takes care of a host of ‘peculiars’ all of whom exhibit strange and wonderful abilities.
From the one-sheet posters and that first tantalizing teaser, there’s no mistaking that this is Burton in his element. Bringing together those hints of the supernatural, fantasy and a smidgen of horror is Kick-Ass scribe Jane Goldman, who penned the screenplay.
Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children opens its doors on September 30.
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.
