Tim Burton and Ransom Riggs’ Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children are made for each other.
The unique way that Riggs created a whole world of wonder and danger from a gathering of miscellaneous antique photographs has a feel completely unlike anything I’ve ever read – and its combination of very real characters and their very different ‘peculiarities’ always struck me as something that Burton could adapt into a strange and wonderful film.
Now he has, and the first trailer for the film was almost exactly as I envisioned it.
Now 20th Century Fox has released a behind-the-scenes featurette in which Riggs, Burton, and some of the film’s cast talk about their delightfully peculiar film. Check it out after the break – along with the film’s second trailer.
One of the best fantasy trilogies I’ve read is Ransom Riggs’ Peculiar Children books. The story of people with peculiar abilities that aren’t accepted in the regular world – and how they live in pockets of suspended time – is an ingenious one.
Now Tim Burton has adapted the first book, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, for film and brought to life its array of fascinating and peculiar characters.
The first trailer is something special. Check it out after the break. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children stars Eva Green, Asa Butterfield and Ella Purnell and opens on September 30th.
20th Century Fox has released a couple photos from Tim Burton’s Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children (based on the bestselling trilogy by Ransom Riggs).
Both photos are pootraits of groups and capture the ever-so-slightly-off quality of the books with their peculiar photos of characters and places. Follow the jump for the second photo.
Directed by Tim Burton, Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children opens on September 30th.
