Fox stages PR stunt to promote Tim Burton film

Twins appeared on the Underground and at tourist hotspots in London today to promote Tim Burton's new film 'Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children', which is released this week.


The twins appeared at Finsbury Park tube station, Buckingham Palace and Hamley’s Toy Store and could be seen squabbling over a teddy bear and Oyster cards and taking part in a kickabout with a Victorian football in front of Buckingham Palace.

The pair were later revealed to be six year-old actors who were part of a stunt to promote Tim Burton's new film Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children, which is released on Thursday (29 September). The actors wore robes and masks that were used in the film.

Fox worked with PR agency Premier to organise the stunt.

In July, Sony Pictures ran a PR stunt at London Waterloo to promote the Ghostbusters film.
