20th Century Fox has dropped a new trailer for Tim Burton‘s Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children
The film stars Eva Green as a foster mother to children with very peculiar powers, and protects them from those who seek to exploit it. She takes an interest in a young boy (Asa Butterfield), whom she believes will be their protector. Check out the trailer below.
Miss Peregrine’s has been called Tim Burton’s X-Men, and it comes as no surprise. Just looking at this trailer and the one that came before it, it’s clear that Miss Peregrine is the wise Professor Charles Xavier of this film, although there aren’t exactly any characters like Wolverine, Cyclops, or Phoenix. Still, it doesn’t seem like Burton needs any of them, as these characters created by author Ransom Riggs fit his style and personality. Also starring is Ella Purnell, Chris O’Dowd, Allison Janney, Terence Stamp, Kim Dickens, Rupert Everett, Judi Dench, and Samuel L. Jackson.
This wouldn’t be the first time that Green and Burton have collaborated together on a project. The two worked together on Dark Shadows, another adaptation that did not get the kind of reception that the studio was hoping for. So let’s cross our fingers that this film gets better results.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children opens September 30, 2016.
Here’s the official plot synopsis:
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.
