Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is the start of a very cool series of YA books, and a film adaptation is headed our way very soon. As it’s officially September, I wanted to share some spooky goodness. What? It’s Fall. Almost. Kinda. I’ll just be over here drinking my iced pumpkin spice latte…
Flux Machine, Tumblr artist extraordinare, has made some amazing GIFs of the upcoming film adaptation. They’re really gorgeous, and get that sepia-toned otherness down pat. Here’s just a taste. Gorgeous, right?
Check out Flux’s Tumblr for more amazing stuff. Meanwhile, as far as the film goes? Synopsis!
From visionary director Tim Burton, and based upon the best-selling novel, comes an unforgettable motion picture experience. When Jake discovers clues to a mystery that spans alternate realities and times, he uncovers a secret refuge known as Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As he learns about the residents and their unusual abilities, Jake realizes that safety is an illusion, and danger lurks in the form of powerful, hidden enemies. Jake must figure out who is real, who can be trusted, and who he really is.
I’m hoping Burton can keep a nice balance of creepy, odd, and strange for this film. He’s been a bit wobbly lately, bless his heart. Fingers crossed this film will be more Big Eyes than Dark Shadows.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children hits theaters September 30th.
