Star Movies to premiere ‘Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children’ on 14 Jan
MUMBAI: English movie channel Star Movies will premiere Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children on 14 January at 1 pm and 9 pm.
The film, directed by Tim Burton, boasts of a stellar cast comprising the likes of Eva Green, Samuel L. Jackson, and Judi Dench. While the film is adapted from Riggs’ novel, the script has been crafted together by Jane Goldman, who’s famous for her work in creating films such as Kick-Ass and Kingsman: The Secret Service.
The Guardian’s Jordan Hoffman summarises the film quite aptly when he says, “We get the playfulness of seeing quirky magic powers mixed with the familiarity of how a time loop plays out. Add in Burton’s authorial visual stamp and what we’ve got is an extremely pleasing formula. It gels as Tim Burton’s best (non-musical) live-action movie for 20 years.”
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children takes you on a journey through the life of Jacob, who stumbles upon a secret house in a parallel universe. Once Jacob begins to discover the children’s special gifts, and the enemies they seem to have made, the tale takes a dangerous twist.
