‘Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children’ Trailer: Tim Burton’s New World Is Full Of Endearing Fantasy
  |  @   |  

There is one thing you can count on from Tim Burton, and it’s that he has a knack for bringing out the art from the strange narrative. Though his most recent work has been a bag of mixed results, the filmmaker has stayed true to his style, never once wavering from it. And that really shows in the first new trailer for Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.

The film is an adaptation of the best-selling novel of the same name. Considering its title and plot, it seems like Burton was born to direct this film, which centers on a boy who is tasked with protecting a refuge for children with unusual abilities from those who seek to expose their sanctity. Check out the full trailer below, along with a poster for the movie.
