Tim Burton’s Twins Unleashed in London


Londoners were left puzzled and rather freaked out as two peculiar looking children took to the Underground and popped up at commuter and tourist hotspots across the capital this week.

Wearing the screen used costumes the figures were soon recognised as being the curious characters from the highly anticipated new Tim Burton film MISS PEREGRINE’S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN, released in cinemas this Thursday.

Many confused and bewildered members of the public took to social media after seeing the twins playfully squabbling over a teddy bear, Oyster cards and even engaging in a very Victorian kickabout.

The sightings, at Finsbury Park tube station, Buckingham Palace and Hamley’s Toy Store, were later revealed to be an elaborate stunt to promote the film, which stars Eva Green, Asa Butterfield, Chris O’Dowd, Ella Purnell and Samuel L. Jackson.
