If you’re looking to delve down the rabbit hole of another magical tale, you’re definitely going to want to check out Tim Burton’s new film.
The recently released trailer for his latest masterpiece, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, gives us a glimpse into a world where kids have strange powers, such as invisibility, super-strength and levitation.
Based on Ransom Riggs’ popular book of the same name, the trailer shows a 16-year-old boy named Jacob Portman (Asa Butterfield from Hugo), who follows a mysterious girl named Emma (Ella Purnell) down to a sunken ship. There, she leads him to a portal that takes them back to the ’40s, where Portman meets Miss Peregrine (Eva Green), a lady who runs an a special school for kids with extraordinary abilities.
Portman turns out to be one of them. But an evil force lurks around the corner, and it’s up for him to save the school.
Burton’s penchant for the strange couldn’t be more present in this film. And as always, he’s there to remind us it’s OK to not fit in.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children will be hitting theatres Sept. 30.
