Watch The Extraordinary Trailer For Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children
We are less than 200 days away from Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children debuting in theaters. Based on the first book in a series by Ransom Riggs, Miss Peregrine’s recently gave us first-look photos of the amazing cast. And now the film’s first trailer is here.
Riggs announced on Twitter Monday night that the trailer was coming, so fans waited anxiously for the goods. And it definitely didn’t disappoint.
OMG OMG OMG. This looks absolutely beautiful. Loved seeing several of the kiddos’s peculiarities in action, including Millard’s (Cameron King) invisibility, Bronwyn’s (Pixie Davies) strength, Fiona’s (Georgia Pemberton) plant growing, and Claire’s (Raffiella Chapman) extra mouth. And eeek! That hollowgast at the end was terrifyingly amazing.
However, fans noticed major deviations from the book were happening after learning Emma Bloom (Ella Purnell) and Olive (Lauren McCrostie) swapped powers. Now, Olive is the fire-producing child and Emma is the one who can float. But before you start sending angry tweets to 20th Century Fox, listen to what Riggs has to say about the change.
There are changes from the book, but every change makes the movie better while still honoring the book’s heart. It works beautifully.

If the creator of the book we love so much is 100 per cent down with the changes, then we should be, too. Sometimes adaptations end up working out better than the original work, so we’re putting our faith in you, Ransom. I mean, it is directed by genius Tim Burton, after all. How could it go wrong?
The film’s official Twitter and Facebook pages have been sharing more pics since the first ones dropped two weeks ago

OK, seriously. How poised and powerful does Eva Green look as the title character? Makes me feel bad for all the crap that’s gonna happen to her and her kids during the course of the series.
Asa Butterfield, playing Jacob Portman, is the king of book-to-film adaptations

Seriously, he’s starred in The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, Hugo, and Ender’s Game—all successful adaptations, imo.
Best ragtag group of people ever?

And of course, a film would be nothing without a kick-ass poster
Is it September 30 yet?!
