First Look: Tim Burton's 'Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children'
"It' a weird family." Burton gets back to being weird with his next film, titled Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, adapted from a series of young adult books about "bizarre tales and photos of levitating girls and invisible boys." Now we get to see some of those bizarre photos about a peculiar family, with a few first look shots revealed for the film arriving in theaters this fall. "Weird kids: It's something that I’ve dealt with and been interested in for a while," Burton tells EW. The cast includes Eva Green, Allison Janney, Judi Dench, Ella Purnell, Asa Butterfield, plus the kids: Lauren McCrostie, Pixie Davies, Cameron King, plus twins Thomas and Joseph Odwell. I like invisible kid the most. Meet them below.
When Jake discovers clues to a mystery that spans different worlds and times, he finds Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. But the mystery and danger deepen as he gets to know the residents and learns about their special powers. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is directed by filmmaker Tim Burton, of the films Batman, Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, Mars Attacks!, Sleepy Hollow, Big Fish, Charlie & the Chocolate Factory, Corpse Bride, Alice in Wonderland, Dark Shadows, Frankenweenie and Big Eyes most recently. The screenplay is written by Jane Goldman (of Kick-Ass, The Woman in Black, X-Men: Days of Future Past, Kingsman: The Secret Service), adapted from Ransom Riggs' best-selling novel of the same name. Fox opens Miss Peregrine's Home in theaters starting September 30th this fall.

Then there's Alice in Wonderland, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Alice Through The Looking Glass...but yes, this film seems more in line with his original esthetic.

Agree on all but Sweeny Todd. He's done so much with Depp and Bonham-Carter you might clump them all together, but Sweeny Todd it is far better than the others.

Let us not forget Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Gene Wilder had some specifically great words on the subject. You know as long as we are talking about "horrible remakes". (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/06/14/gene-wilder-charlie-and-the-chocolate-factory_n_3441496.html)
