Being two years removed from the most recent directorial effort of filmmaker Tim Burton, anticipation for his next project has begun to grow amongst fans. The director has garnered a reputation for being a bit hit or miss with his most recent handful of pictures; but regardless, Burton has always been known to bring his unique brand of theatrical style to the table with each and every feature he touches. By all accounts, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children looks to be no different.
Based on the best-selling young adult novel of the same name, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children tells the story of a young boy who stumbles upon an orphanage full of children with unique and supernatural abilities. This eccentric premise appears to fall in line with some of Burton’s previous successes, exciting his fanbase for this upcoming adaptation.
Debuting at 2016’s Teen Choice Awards, a brand new, one-minute commercial trailer for Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children was unveiled. Promising an entertaining adventure quite unlike anything else within the genre, Tim Burton cordially invites moviegoers to embrace their “peculiar side.”
Featuring a slew of clips from previous trailers, along with a handful of new ones, this latest trailer for Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children truly appears to welcome strange with open arms. Showcasing the likes of Eva Green, Asa Butterfield, and Samuel L. Jackson, the commercial also highlighted some of the film’s big-name talent. Additionally, the preview hints at the film’s overarching conflict, arguably more so than its previous promotional material.
Being referred to by fans and critics as Tim Burton’s X-Men, the teaser does seem to suggest numerous similarities between the two franchises; having First Class screenwriter Jane Goldman on board only serving to aid the comparison. Nevertheless, promotional material for Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children truly appears to encapsulate the best of what moviegoers have come to expect from Burton. An off the wall premise, quirky characters, and a fun, epic story all fit the description of what fans hope to see from the filmmaker.
As earlier stated, Burton has begun to develop a repuation for helming hit or miss films, but when he is at his best, it is undeniable that the director has a style all his own – a style that Hollywood simply is not the same without. If any filmmaker is up to the challenge to embrace their peculiar side, there is arguably no one better than Tim Burton.
