The peculiar. The weird. The out-there.
There have been a lot movies that look at that and the greatest master of this is certainly Tim Burton! Whilst his crown of the oddballs may be tainted but a series of bad movies, he looks to return with this fantastic spectacle.
Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children is based on a book by Ransom Riggs. It revolves around a twisted Mary Poppins who takes unusual children into her home. Each resident there has special powers and…powerful enemies. New boy Jake discovers that his own “peculiarity” can save his new friends.
With Eva Green, Asa Butterfield, and Chris O’Dowd, the film looks interesting and somewhat inspiring. Burton could genuinely bring his classic talent of making those who feel odd and out of place feel at home within cinema. But as this is just a trailer, we’re still on tenterhooks. Could Burton be back on form? Or is this the final nail in his coffin?
