'Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children'

The man behind iconic works like 'Sweeney Todd' and 'Edward Scissorhands' is at it again, this time he has come up with an adaptation that has got film lovers talking the world over. Hollywood director Tim Burton's latest work is none other than 'Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children', a young adult fantasy that has been adapted from Ransom Riggs novel by the same title.

Film critics have had nothing but positive words for the award winning director's brand new project. In the words of Variety Magazine's chief film critic Peter Debruge, Rigg's novel may have well been written for Burton to direct.

To show the extent of his appreciation for Burton's new work, Debruge goes on to say that the mere addition of Burton's name to a film work can now justify any film even if it is just a lackluster creation.

A perfect reproduction of Ransom Riggs work

The multi-talented filmmaker has taken Rigg's story and owned it. He has reproduced it with a touch of playfulness and thoughtfulness that makes it a must watch for anyone who has long been starved of a captivating adaptation.

Looking at the success of this adaptation and also at the American auteur's past works, Debruge's claim that the bestseller may have as well have been written for him isn't farfetched. Burton is known to favor storylines which feature misfits and which also have a blend of comedy and tragedy. Miss Peregrine's is not in shortage of any of these qualities.

Dressing monsters

One possible reason why Burton may be successful with this new adaptation is because he didn't deviate so much from the author's way of telling the story. Just like Riggs told the story through vintage photographs he had collected, Burton too made sketches of characters and props before embarking on any production work.

The novel is peculiar and Burton has replayed it in an even more peculiar way. The iconic director has had monsters and other evil characters fitted with clothes, something that rarely happens in a film work.

Burton told the New York Times that he clothed the monsters because he had wished for them to have a human quality. He was speaking to the media house on phone from Los Angeles. He also added that he liked Rigg's idea of creating the novel from vintage pictures.

Movie debuting in September

The new sensation is set to hit the theaters on September 30, 2016. A special fan screening was held about a fortnight ago at London's Soho Hotel. Burton attended this screening and was also joined by What Kind Of Man singer Florence Welch. Welch, 30, has played a part in the upcoming blockbuster by contributing a soundtrack. The track is a new recording titled Wish That You Were Here.

The new movie is a production of 20th Century Fox Studios in combination with TSG Entertainment. TSG is a subsidiary of Chernin Entertainment.

Cast and Crew

Apart from Burton, the film work received input from a number of notable figures within the Hollywood industry. Its crew is as follows:

Director: Tim Burton

Producer: Peter Chernin and Jenno Topping

Executive producers: Katterli Frauenfelder, Derek Frey, Nigel Gostelow, and Ivana Lombardi.

Screenplay: Jane Goldman

Camera: Bruno Delbonnel

Music: Florence Welch

Editor: Chris Lebenzon

Cast

The movie's top billed cast are 'Clash Royale's' Eva Green, Asa Butterfield of 'Ender's Game', and 'The Hateful Eight's' Samuel Leroy Jackson.

Burton has also gone for Allyson Janney, Milo Parker, Chris O'Dowd, Ella Purnell, Rupert Everett, Kim Dickens, Terence Stamp, Judi Dench, and O-Lan Jones. Other cast members include Cameron King, Hayden Keeler-Stone, Georgia Pemberton, Finlay MacMillan, Lauren McCrostie, Pixie Davies, and Raffiella Chapman.

Comparison with other movies

Miss Peregrine's movie has been described as a cross between 'X-Men Apocalypse' and 'Nightbreed'. This is after a trailer of the movie emerged earlier in the year showing mutant-like creatures in pursuit of humans. Other movie lovers have also compared the film to 'Harry Potter's' Almanac and the comedy horror film in which Eva Green also starred in alongside Johnny Depp.

The film's tone on the other hand has been compared to that of Disney's 'Alice In Wonderland'. This shows that it is widely perceived as a fantasy type of film.

What is the upcoming movie about?

'Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children' is a story that revolves around a young man known as Jake (Asa Butterfield). Jake's grandfather leaves him clues to a mystery that has existed for ages and one that cuts through different worlds. Jakes then leaves to uncover this mystery.

Jake's pursuit of the said mystery leads him to many discoveries. One of these is just too magical to be true, it is Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children. As Jake gets to know the inhabitants of this place, he discovers that they have peculiar qualities and that very dangerous enemies are also hot on their pursuit. Jake must then act quickly to save his new friends from the danger that looms at every corner.

The story is set in Cairnholm Island in Wales where the peculiar home is located. It is a Victorian II orphanage that has weathered Nazi bombings during World War II and still served as a shelter for the homeless kids even seven decades later.

The children at the orphanage have known peace all along until a mutant known as Barron (Samuel Leroy Jackson) sets out on a hunt for peculiars. These kids are an obvious target for him because of the special powers they possess. Barron gobbles his victim's eyeballs. He is seeking to eat human eyeballs in a bid to develop human-like qualities.

The children are consequently plunged in an unknown world of terror. This is far from the tranquillity they have known for years under Miss Peregine (Eva Green)'s guardianship.

Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children is a neatly kept secret, even the residents of Cairnholm have not been aware of its existence all through the years. They are therefore surprised to learn that Jake has travelled all the way from Florida in search of it.

The characters at the mysterious home are indeed peculiar. Miss Peregine for example has the ability to make special bubbles where the kids can hide in times of danger. She is also able to transform into a bird. Hugh Apiston (Milo Parker) is also another eccentric character. He is a boy with bees in his stomach.

A nice ending

Burton has brought the movie to a good conclusion, it ends on a happy note and it will certainly make a nice watch for teenage children. The movie is rated PG13. It is 127 minutes long.

Movie enthusiasts only have four days left and then they can sit down and enjoy the much awaited fantasy work.
