'Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children' Trailer Shows a New Mutants Paradise

Mar 15, 2016

If you want to see what the quintessential Tim Burton movie looks like, you're in luck because his latest now has a trailer and it's gloriously Burton-esque. It's as if Ransom Riggs wrote the YA fantasy book Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children just so it'd be made into a movie by the man behind the movies Edward Scissorhands and Big Fish and the drawings of strange children in his own book The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy & Other Stories

It's also sort of what a Tim Burton-directed X-Men movie might look like. Or at least a New Mutants movie. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children stars Eva Green as a sort of Professor Xavier for orphans with strange powers or qualities. There's an invisible boy and a very strong girl and a pair of odd twins who look like they belong in a creepy horror movie. They live in a time loop that keeps them sheltered from the world, and vice versa. But uh oh, here comes Samuel L. Jackson as what looks to be another weird villain.

The movie stars Asa Butterfield, the great young actor who previously led the exceptional YA adaptations Hugo and Ender's Game, and in addition to Green and Jackson he's joined by fellow portrayers of peculiar children Ella Purnell (Maleficent), Pixie Davies (TV's The White Queen) and Milo Parker (Mr. Holmes), as well as an interesting ensemble of elder actors including Judi Dench, Kim Dickens, Terence Stamp, Chris O'Dowd, Allison Janney and Rupert Everett, none of whom appear in this first trailer. 

Watch the spot below, and if it looks like your sort of magical mystery movie then you can check it out in theaters starting September 30.
