STORYLINE: "When Jacob discovers 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, Jacob discovers that only his own special "peculiarity" can save his new friends." (Written by 20th Century Fox)
Since his recent forays into "real/reel world" filmmaking Tim Burton returns to a form/genre for which he is unmistakably tied to, and that I'd miss dearly from the director of such quirkiness such as "Edward Scissorhands", with this splendid looking "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children", very much a parallel to a "Xavier School for Gifted Children", but with a veil of darkness that I'd imagine absolutely relishing in, uncomprehensively so!
Without sounding too much like a jaded lover of films - here's hoping there is much more to this film than a swell trailer (as seems most films these days tend to feature only the best bits in, IMO).
Based upon the novel of the same name (authored by Ransom Riggs), the film stars Eva Green, Asa Butterfield, Ella Purnell, Allison Janney, Terence Stamp, Rupert Everett, with Judi Dench and Samuel L. Jackson, and premieres in USA on September 30th, and 29th September, 2016 in Singapore … and I'd def catch this in the cinema!
