If you haven’t read the Peregrine series of books by Ransom Riggs, by all means, do so! When I read it, I thought, “This is kind of Tim Burton’s X-Men as a period piece.” So it’s appropriate that Burton will direct the film, which I hope will mark his return to AAA status as a director.
The movie is based on the novel by Ransom Riggs and it stars Eva Green, Asa Butterfield, Ella Purnell, Chris O’Dowd, Allison Janney, Terence Stamp, Kim Dickens, Rupert Everett, Judi Dench, and Samuel L. Jackson.
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.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children opens September 30, 2016.
