Tim Burton adapts the bestselling novel by Ransom Riggs about a seemingly ordinary boy (Asa Butterfield, Ender's Game) who comes across a home for unusually gifted children, ran by the enigmatic Miss Peregrine (Eva Green, Dark Shadows). Co-stars Samuel L. Jackson, Chris O'Dowd (The Program), Terence Stamp and Judi Dench.
Jacob "Jake" Plowman (Butterfield) grew up hearing fantastic tales from his grandfather Abe (Stamp) about children gifted with an array of powers. All dismissed by Jake's parents, of course... After Abe's sudden death, they send Jake to therapy to deal with the tragedy and the strange events surrounding it. When he eventually travels to the setting of Abe's tales, Jake finds more truth in his grandfather's stories than he ever expected, finding his way to Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, and meeting those that live there - kids who can control fire, air, or have unique physical powers. But with this exciting discovery comes a danger to Jake and his new friends in the terrifying form of Mr. Barron (Jackson), leader of monstrous scientists with a particular appetite that only peculiar kids can satisfy.
