Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children from 20th Century Fox and Chernin Entertainment; directed by Tim Burton outdid the box office earnings of "Deepwater Horizon"  and "Magnificent Seven" that were released last week. The said movie met the expectations of the analysts which was $25 million to $30 million and reached approximately $28.5 million in its first week in both U.S and Canada. The movie was able to earn about $36.5 million internationally.

According to Chris Aronson, the studio's domestic distribution chief, they were really happy with the opening result from the U.S. and Canada; and were even happier with the international opening.

The movie was adapted from a novel written by Ransom Riggs; which was about the peculiar children that had special powers in an orphanage and was discovered by a boy named Jacob (played by Asa Butterfeild). Famous actors and actress such as Eva Green and Samuel Jackson took part in the movie as well. The film was well-made and costs about $110 million to make.

Aronson said that the writer and director poured a lot of thinking and effort into the film so that they were able to produce an original and creative movie.  Although the movie was only favored by 64% of the Rotten Tomatoes' critics, the movie is still not that bad.

 Next to Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, was the recent release "Deep Horizon" which had the ticket sales of $20.6 million. The analysts expected for the movie to earn around $16 million to $20 million in which the movie did surpass a little.  "Deep Horizon" was directed by Peter Berg; which tackles about the BP-oil spill tragedy that transpired in 2010.
