Wistful Behind-The-Scenes Featurette: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children!

peregrins-gallery8-anchor

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.

Mindstopping Trailer: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children!

Miss Peregrine

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.

Ocular Trailer: Tim Burton’s Big Eyes!

BIGEYES-Leah Gallo-The Weinstein Company

Big Eyes is not exactly the kind of movie you might expect from Tim Burton, being based on the true story of artist Margaret Keane (Amy Adams) who created the famous series of paintings of doe-eyed subjects and her husband Walter (Christoph Waltz), whose marketing savvy made them a phenomenon in the ‘50s and ‘60s.

With a filmography that has never slipped over into the normal, Big Eyes may be the most unexpected film of Burton’s career. It will open on December 25th. Check out the trailer after he jump.

Frankenweenie–It’s Alive! It’s Alive!

While the trailers for Frankenweenie have been terrific, and all the press releases for it have noted that it’s a very personal project for Tim Burton, I think it will take seeing this making of featurette to really drive home how important the film is to him. Various cast and crew – including Martin Landau, Martin Short, Catherine O’Hara, Winona Ryder and Burton – talk about the film and its making.
