‘Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children’ Trailer: Tim Burton Brings Magical Book to Life (Video)

Eva Green leads the cast of the Sept. 30 release

20th Century Fox has released the first trailer for Tim Burton‘s adaptation of “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,” based on Ransom Rigg’s best-selling book of the same name.

Eva Green (“Casino Royale”) stars as Miss Peregrine, who maintains the home for children with supernatural abilities of all kinds. Asa Butterfield (“Ender’s Game”) plays a new arrival whom she tasks with protecting the pack of kids in her absence.

Samuel L. Jackson pops up in the trailer, and he doesn’t look very friendly.

Peter Chernin and Jenno Topping produced the fantasy film hitting theaters on Sept. 30.
