The first teaser for director Tim Burton’s upcoming, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children , was released on Friday and didn’t offer a look at the film, but was a hint at the mood and Burton-esque feel to the movie. The film stars Asa Butterfield, Eva Green, Ella Purnell, Allison Janney, Terence Stamp, Rupert Everett, Kim Dickens, Judi Dench, and Samuel L. Jackson.
Based on the popular book series, the official synopsis is as follows:
From visionary director Tim Burton, and based upon the best-selling novel, comes an unforgettable motion picture experience. When his beloved grandfather leaves Jake clues to a mystery that spans different worlds and times, he finds a magical place known as Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. But the mystery and danger deepen as he gets to know the residents and learns about their special powers… and their powerful enemies. Ultimately, Jake discovers that only his own special “peculiarity” can save his new friends.
It looks like a solid cast and material that would suit Burton, who is looking for his next hit after his latest, Big Eyes, didn’t do much at the box office or during awards season. Butterfield is a rising star and Green is a fantastic actress, making her second Burton film after Dark Shadows.
The Loop Day teaser comes from a major plot point in the books where Miss Peregrine’s home is located in a September 3, 1940 time loop. Every day, the clocks reset just before her island home is bombed by German forces. With yesterday being September 3, it is the perfect day to market the film.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children opens on March 4, 2016.
