Take a look inside Tim Burton’s new movie through a collection of vintage photographs by Leah Gallo on the sets of Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children
There are very few directors left in Hollywood that can hold together eccentricity the way Tim Burton does. Sure, he has been accused by critics world over for over using his plot lines and failing to move beyond dramatic sets and beautiful shots. Lately his films have also been accused of lacking the originality of his earlier classics such as the Beetlejuice (1988) and Edward Scissorhands (1990). But the undisputed fact remains that , never has anyone been able to recreate the surreal magic of his imagination on screen.
It’s no wonder that we’re excited about his new film, Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children, which is the adaptation of the popular children book series by Ronald Riggs and unarguably his best movie in years. Although it does have some classic ghoulish moments and set mechanisms that have come to be associated with the eccentric director, Miss Peregrine’s is definitely not as crazy as Alice in Wonderland (2010) or as dark as Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007). It is instead surprisingly refreshing and fantastical in its almost charming adventure that will have you glued to the screen. We recommend you catch the next show this weekend. In the meantime, you ought to treat yourself to the wonderfully weird world of Burton’s imagination. Check out these vintage photographs taken for the movie by Leah Gallo.
