Take a look @ director Tim Burton's latest feature "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children" opening September 30th 2016, starring Eva Green, Asa Butterfield, Rupert Everett, Terrence Stamp and Judi Dench, adapting the debut novel by author Ransom Riggs:

"...after his grandfather's killing, apparently by a fantasy creature, 16-year-old 'Jacob Portman' goes to Wales to learn more about his grandfather's life. There he discovers that his grandfather lived in a derelict orphanage for 'peculiar children'.

"That is where he meets 'Emma', a girl who can control fire. She uses time travel to take him back to 1940 to meet 'Miss Peregrine', the orphanage director, who lives with the other children in a 'time loop'.

"Jacob enjoys spending time with the other peculiar children such as 'Millard', who is invisible and 'Bronwyn', who has incredible strength. In the pub where Jacob is staying, he hears stories of mysterious deaths in the region, and he warns the peculiar children. They tell Jacob that the deaths were caused by the 'hollows', the same monsters that killed his grandfather. Jacob later learns that he too is 'peculiar' and realizes only he can see the monsters and stop the killings.

A"fter Jacob, with Emma's help, kills one of the hollows, Miss Peregrine is kidnapped. The children rescue Miss Peregrine, but she is in bird form and cannot change back to human form.

"Ultimately the peculiar children must find another time loop when theirs fails to reset. A loop must be reset every day by its owner – in this case, Miss Peregrine – and she is trapped as a bird, causing the loop to disappear and forcing the children to find a new home..."
