Based on Ransom Riggs' novel and adapted by Jane Goldman (Stardust), the story follows 16 year-old Jacob (Asa Butterfield), who has grown up hearing tales of the titular orphanage's odd residents from his grandfather. They included a girl who always floated slightly above the ground, another who could safely hold fire in her hands and twins who had a psychic connection.
When his grandad suddenly dies, leaving behind a message for his grandson, Jacob makes the trip to the strange island off the coast of Wales. There he also finds the remains of Miss Peregrine's place and discovers that some of those who lived there might not have left. Not only does the orphanage still exist, sort of, but its strange inhabitants are under threat from dark forces.
With Eva Green (300: Rise Of An Empire), Allison Janney (Juno), Judi Dench (Skyfall), Samuel L. Jackson (Django Unchained), Chris O'Dowd (Bridesmaids), Terrence Stamp The Adjustment Bureau), Ella Purnell (Maleficent) and Rupert Everett (Stardust) in the cast, Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children arrives in UK cinemas 30 September.
