A Tim Burton film without Johnny Depp? It may take some getting used to, but this upcoming film by the famously quirky director presents a change of scenery that could prove refreshing.

The story follows typical American teen Jake (Asa Butterfield), an awkward boy who can’t connect with anyone except his grandfather. But when the old man suddenly passes, Jake sets off on a journey that leads him to the mysterious Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.

MISS PEREGRINE'S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN

This secret refuge houses “Peculiars”: Young residents with unusual abilities such as levitation, fire-manipulation and super-strength. Think surrealist X-Men, where instead of head-honcho Professor X, there is Miss Peregrine (Eva Green, TV’s “Penny Dreadful”).

Green describes that here, “‘strangeness’ is celebrated as something special and beautiful”.
