TIM BURTON: MISS PEREGRINE’S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN

by

Tim Burton has always been one of my favorite directors.  The dark contemporary sets, mixed with one of the most unbelievable music composers of the last 30yrs in Danny Elfman, Burton’s films flow with a seamless collaboration of darkness and beautiful melody, they are as unmistakable as a Dr. Suess world.

Burton’s new movie looks to be another amazing piece.  ‘Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children’ isn’t a surprising choice for Burton to bring to life.

Asa Butterfield plays Jake, a 16-year-old plagued by nightmares following a family tragedy.  On the advice of his therapist, the teen embarks on an overseas journey to find the abandoned orphanage where his late grandfather claims to have once lived. Not only does the place turn out to be real, it also serves as the gateway to an alternate realm where children with strange powers are looked after by a magical guardian (Penny Dreadful star Eva Green) and time moves of its own accord.

‘Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children’ is based on a 2011 novel by Ranson Riggs, which was inspired by vintage photos the author collected in flea markets over the years.

“They’re quite compelling,” Burton says. “They remind me of old horror movies, or dreams.”

Burton is no stranger to weird kids in film, he went on to add:

“Weird kids: It’s something that I’ve dealt with and been interested in for a while,” says Burton, who previously directed Alice in Wonderland and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, among other films with youthful protagonists. “It’s a weird family.”
