Burton film at İKSV Galas
ISTANBULTim Burton’s new film “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” will be screened as part of the Istanbul Foundation for Culture (İKSV) Galas before its release. The film will be shown on Sept. 27 at 9:30 p.m. at the Cinemaximum City’s Nişantaşı location.
Based upon Ransom Riggs’ bestselling novel, the film “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” was adapted for the screen from the novel of the same name written by one of the most spectacular figures of recent fantastic fiction.
The film follows Jake, who discovers clues to a mystery that spans alternate realities and times, uncovering 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.
“Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” was published in 2011 and went straight to number one in children’s literature, where it stayed for 45 weeks. Two follow-up novels were published, both written by Riggs: “Hollow City” in 2014 and “Library of Souls” in 2016.
The film’s screenwriter is Jane Goldman, who co-scripted the blockbusters “Kingsman,” “X-Men: First Class,” “Kick-Ass” and “Stardust.”
A producer, designer, animation artist and painter, Burton is one of the most creative directors of our time who has made films in several styles and genres, including horror, fantasy, gothic, animation and even musical.
“Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” will have its world premiere at the Austin Fantastic Fest on Sept. 25, and will open in theaters in Turkey on Sept. 30. Tickets are available at Biletix and İKSV.
