Samuel L. Jackson Catches the Wind in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children Clip

Tim Burton's film Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children will hit theaters on September 30, based on the book by Ransom Riggs. We've been loving what 20th Century Fox has shared thus far, including this tour Riggs took of the incredible set. The film follows Jacob (Asa Butterfield), a boy who, following a terrible family tragedy, sniffs out a bunch of clues that lead him to an abandoned orphanage on a Welsh island. Of course, that orphanage turns out to be anything but abandoned. The orphanage is run by Miss Peregrine (Eva Green), and it’s populated by the most peculiar children in the world—which include kids with super strength, invisibility, mouths in the backs of their heads and, as evidenced in the photo above, the ability to not only float, but to harness the power of the wind (with her breath, no less). These children are in constant peril from Hollowgasts, terrifying monsters that are ready to eat them should they wander off the grounds of Miss Peregrein’s home. They're also in danger from Barron, played with his usual mix of menace and glee, by the great Samuel L. Jackson.

In this clip, Barron sqaures off against Emma (Ella Purnell), in a match that seems to be in Emma's favor, that is, until she runs out of breath.

Chris O’Dowd, Allison Janney, Rupert Everett, Terence Stamp, and Judi Dench also star.
