In this new movie, we’ve got a house that offers shelter to humans with special powers, a mysterious professor type of character and a bunch of evil things happening all around. Add to that some of Tim Burton’s well-known darkness and creepiness, and you end up with a movie that seems to be Burton’s weird take on the X-Men. Only this isn’t an original creation from Burton, and it’s not an X-Men movie either.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is a movie about a bunch of children that have special abilities, with each one sporting a unique power just like, you guessed it, the X-Men. Eva Green plays Miss Peregrine, who’s in charge of the orphanage – she’s the Charles Xavier of this world, if you will.
Plenty of dangers lie ahead in addition to the second World War, as this new trailer for the movie reveals, and these kids have to find ways to fight together.
Based on Ransom Riggs’s book of the same title, the movie has an incredible cast. Joining Green we have Samuel L. Jackson, Asa Butterfield, Allison Janney, Rupert Everett, Judi Dench, Chris O’Dowd and others. The movie opens September 30th.
