Miss Peregrine film's capital launch
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children finally hits the big screen on Thursday '“ and the film, which features scenes shot in Blackpool, was officially launched this week in London.
Director Tim Burton switched on last year’s Illuminations after filming scenes in front of Blackpool Tower covered in snow.
A trailer for the film, centred on a home for children with special powers, shows one of the main protagonists running along North Pier with the Tower in the background. Emma Bloom, pictured in the air, plays Ella in the film, a character who has the unusual ability to control air and float unassisted.
