These locations were deliberately chosen because they matched the dark element that Tim Burton wanted to show. It is hoped that the audience of this film will be able to feel the strangeness and strangeness after watching the scenes taken from these places.
Tim Burton himself really wanted to make the film released by 20th Century Fox darker. He was inspired after seeing classic and vintage photos of the peculiar children in his novels. The author, Ransom Riggs, admits, initially, he got the ancient pictures from a flea market. Then he tried to make a storyline based on the photos. Riggs felt there was a mystery and dark emotion when he saw the pictures he collected.
Another thing that also attracts attention in the film Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is the appearance of Eva Green as the main star. You could say, this 121 minute film is the first big stage for the sexy French actress. So far, Eva Green, who is 36 years old, has only played a supporting role in famous films. Kind of Kingdom of Heaven (2005) and James Bond’s Casino Royale (2006).
And, as a result, after premiering at Fantastic Fest last Sunday (25/9), this USD 110 million budget film received good reviews from several sites and critics. Although the narrative is considered to be lacking, visually, this 3D dark fantasy adventure film is quite strong. Like the previous works of Tim Burton.
