Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children and Pete's Dragon (NEW) Trailers
Another film from the dark and creative mind of Tim Burton will arrive in 2016. And if I'm being honest, I was very intrigued by it's debut trailer. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children stars Asa Butterfield as Jacob, a teen who discovers clues that lead him to a magical place that defies time and space. The residence of Miss Peregrine (Eva Green) serves as a shelter for boys and girls with strange and peculiar powers. Jacob must discover his unique ability and help fend off evil forces trying to destroy his new friends. Tim Burton's latest arrives on September 30th and you can catch its debut trailer below.
We're caught in a summer full of sequels and reboots, but one intriguing childhood favorite of mine makes a return with Disney's Pete's Dragon. Although some similarities are evident between David Lowery's new version and the 1977 original, it's clear that this film's story hopes to set itself apart from its source material. When a young boy named Pete (Oakes Fegley) is found wandering alone in the wilderness by an official (Bryce Dallas Howard), he tells stories of his best friend Elliot, a dragon with the ability to become invisible. Skepticism always runs rampant for any remake, but hopefully Pete's Dragon will surprise us all this August. Check out the film's first theatrical trailer below.
