Despite breaking their Oyster card in half, two peculiar looking twins still managed to take to the Underground to visit as many commuter and tourist hotspots they could across London today.
The two “peculiar” characters in question were of course carrying out a rather elaborate stunt to promote Tim Burton’s soon-to-be-released MISS PEREGRINE’S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN, which releases in cinemas this Thursday.
Bewildered bystanders soon took to social media to tell everyone what they’d just spotted in central London which, as you can see in the following photos, were two peculiar twins playfully – although clearly quite ham-fistedly – squabbling over a teddy bear, Oyster cards and even engaging in a very Victorian kickabout in front of Buckingham Palace. The costumes worn by the six year-old actors were also the actual robes and masks featured in the film.
From visionary director Tim Burton, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is based upon the best-selling novel by Ransom Riggs and is an unforgettable motion picture experience. When Jake discovers clues to a mystery that spans alternate realities and times, he uncovers a secret refuge known as Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As he learns about the residents and their unusual abilities, Jake realizes that safety is an illusion, and danger lurks in the form of powerful, hidden enemies. Jake must figure out who is real, who can be trusted, and who he really is.
