New TV Spot for Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children Wishes You Were Here


Are you a Florence + The Machine fan?  If so, then you’ll want to check out this new TV spot for Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, in which their new song “Wish That You Were Here,” a collaboration between band leader Florence Welch and director Tim Burton, is previewed.

Based upon the best-selling novel by Ransom Riggs, this unforgettable motion picture experience will arrive in theaters on September 30th, and “Wish That You Were Here” will be featured in it. The cast includes Eva Green, Asa Butterfield, Ella Purnell, Allison Janney, Terence Stamp, and Rupert Everett with Judi Dench and Samuel L. Jackson.

Florence explained her band’s involvement with the film in this statement:  I’ve always been a huge fan of Tim Burton’s. We have a very similar sensibility. It’s the kind of dark, dark romance of his work—so beautiful and whimsical, but with an element of darkness to it. That’s something that I always try and achieve in my work, too. I knew we would get along really well working together and we did. I feel like we’re coming from a similar place of quite frantic imaginations trying to get the words out before the pictures in our heads disappear. He feels like a kindred spirit. I actually sent him a note about six years ago. I was in Australia on tour there for the first time and visited an exhibition of all his work. I wanted to leave him a message and all I had on me was an x-ray of my hand, as I had just broken my finger. So I wrote on the x-ray and gave it to the gallery to pass on and never knew if he got it. When we met for the first time, he told me it’s been hanging up in his office ever since.

“Wish That You Were Here” will be available through digital retailers beginning tomorrow (August 26th).
