Author Ransom Riggs' hollowgasts are some of the most fearsome creatures in the literary world. With sad, downtrodden, human-like faces and fat tentacles slithering out of their mouths, they're not the sort of varmints you want to think about before bed. So now that Tim Burton has brought Riggs' vision to life in his upcoming film adaptation of Miss Peregrine, you better believe we'll be watching this one in the light of day.
In a brand new trailer for the film released Monday, we get our first look at the hollowgasts described above, absolutely frightening in all of their wriggling splendor. There are, of course, some small changes. Burton's hollowgasts, for example, have no faces, which perhaps only serves to make them scarier.
We also see a bit more of Emma Bloom's power, which is another deviation from the book. In Riggs' Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, Emma's power is the ability to conjure fire. In Burton's rendition, her powers are switched with Olive's, who is now given this power while Emma has the ability to float and manipulate air.
