Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, in theaters September 30
From visionary director Tim Burton, and based on 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.
Starring: Eva Green, Asa Butterfield, Chris O’Dowd, Ella Purnell, Allison Janney, Rupert Everett, Terence Stamp, with Judi Dench and Samuel L. Jackson
Directed By: Tim Burton
I had such a wonderful time at the premier of MISS PEREGRINE’S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN on Thursday, September 8.
I was able to watch Tim Burton put his handprints into cement for the famous TLC CHINESE THEATER which was really amazing! Wynona Ryder introduced Tim Burton and it was amazing how close I was to the whole ceremony.
The film was amazing and reflected the book perfectly! I can’t wait to share my complete thoughts on the release date.
I totally fan girled Tahereh Mafi and apologize to her husband Ransom Riggs. That is me in the middle!
There was also an amazing CAKE of the HOME in the lobby:
Here are a few pictures of the cast which perfectly embodied the characters.
I really want to thank everyone at 20th Century Fox for including me in this event. It was truly once in a lifetime for me.
What a great event! I saw a great commercial last night, looks fantastic!
You can’t miss this one. I saw it in 3D but I think it would be just as lovely on a normal big screen. I would watch this over and over.

So jealous! I’ve met Ransom Riggs, but not his wife, although I really want to! Was Chris O’Dowd there? I am a huge fan of his! Looks like it was a neat time. Now I can’t wait to see the movie!
I didn’t see Chris there. I met Ransom several times as well but never met Tahereh even though we have been at the same events. I kinda over fan girled there. I completely lost it LOL! She is just so stunning in person. The movie was really well done and I think everyone will be happy with it. Just a few minor changes from the book so that it would translate to the screen. I really hope they do make Hollow City next. There is an opening for it at the end.
Erin O'Riordan says
I’m a little once bitten, twice shy of Tim Burton movies, since his adaptation of ‘Dark Shadows’ (which also starred Eva Green) was awful. I blame the screenwriter, Seth Grahame-Smith, for a lot of that nonsense, though. I have high hopes that this will a good adaptation of a book I really, really liked.
I’m glad you had a good time!
I didn’t realize Burton did Dark Shadows and it wasn’t a favorite of mine either. I am old enough to have watched the original on TV. (I had to sneak to the neighbors to do that, though.)
This one makes up for all of his errors. There are few minor differences between the book and the movie, but it all works.
