It's a trailer-tastic Tuesday! We've seen trailers for both the R-Rated animated comedy Sausage Party and superhero show Daredevil today but, if that wasn't enough for you, the first trailer and poster for the film adaption of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children have also arrived.

This evening, 20th Century Fox have debuted the first trailer for director Tim Burton's forthcoming adaptation of the classic, beloved children's novel, of the same name, by Ransom Riggs. The story follows a boy that, after suffering a family tragedy, finds an abandoned home inhabited by children with various kinds of peculiar abilities. The trailer is fairly interesting and establishes the premise and tone very nicely; it's a rather strange trailer with lots of strange things going on but it's pretty cool and looks wonderful, nonetheless.

I haven't read the iconic novel that this film is based on so I can't judge this trailer according to that but, having spoken to fans of the book, apparently it looks like a fairly faithful adaption. The tone and the style of the picture feels and looks like classic Burton, in all its mysterious and strange and mystical glory. Accompanying the reveal, a first poster for Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (isn't that a mouthful!) has also been unveiled and it's bursting with colour. The trailer certainly has me intrigued for this picture; it looks as though it could be a lot of fun. Well have to wait and see.

Here's the film's official 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. 
With Tim Burton at the helm, and starring Eva Green, Asa Butterfield, Ella Purnell, Alison Janney, Judi Dench and Samuel Jackson, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is set to open on September 30th, 2016.
