Star Movies makes a supernatural start to 2018 with this blockbuster movie
Now that we’ve entered the new year, it’s time to treat ourselves to some fresh Blockbusters. That’s exactly what Star Movies, the Home of Blockbusters, has set out to do this January. Get ready to be wowed by the peculiar feats of some gifted children, as Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children premieres on January 14, 1 PM and 9 PM on Star Movies.
The film is directed by Tim Burton, two-time Oscar nominee, who is known for his ability to create high caliber films such as Edward Scissorhands, Frankenweenie, Planet of the Apes and Alice in Wonderland. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children boasts of a stellar cast comprising the likes of Eva Green, Samuel L. Jackson and Judi Dench. While the film is adapted from Riggs’ novel, the script has been crafted together by Jane Goldman, who’s famous for her work in creating films such as Kick-Ass and Kingsman: The Secret Service.
The Guardian's Jordan Hoffman summarizes the film quite aptly when he says, "We get the playfulness of seeing quirky magic powers mixed with the familiarity of how a time loop plays out. Add in Burton's authorial visual stamp and what we've got is an extremely pleasing formula. It gels as Tim Burton's best (non-musical) live-action movie for 20 years.”
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children takes you on a journey through the life of Jacob, who stumbles upon a secret house in a parallel universe. Once Jacob begins to discover the children’s special gifts, and the enemies they seem to have made, the tale takes a dangerous twist.
Where does Jacob fit in all of this, and will he be able to save his new peculiar friends?
To find out, tune in to Star Movies, January 14 1 PM and 9 PM, for the India Television Premiere of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.
