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.

While Hollywood douches continue to make horrible remakes like Ghostbusters and Point Break, Tim Burton keeps creating these one of a kind gems....friggin Hollywood

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". (
