Tim Burton is gearing up to introduce us to yet another movie which looks like a masterpiece just like his previous work. The director is known for hollywood classics like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and the 1989 Batman movie. Based on the novel of the same name written by Ransom Riggs, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is right up Tim’s alley as we see the child-like magic along with dark creepy monsters.
The story about Jacob Portman who due to some unfortunate series of accidents finds his way to Miss Peregine’s home and sees for himself the titular children. Unfortunately, these children are hunted by Mr. Barron who wants their eyes. These children use their 'peculiarities' to save the day.
The peculiarity in discussion is more like what we have learnt to associate with 'mutants' (Thank you, X-Men!) today. Let us tell you more about these children before you meet them in the theaters. For those who have read the books, this should be a good opportunity to refresh memories.
Emma Bloom’s peculiarity is her ability to control air and her ability to create liquid bubbles. She also has to be tethered down or else she can even levitate.
Fiona’s peculiarity is similar to Poison Ivy’s. She can control plants and also has a great fondness for them. She has green fingers, this one.
Horace dreams about the future and that can be exciting and terrifying at the same time.
The Masked Twins
The Masked Twins are gorgons who have telepathic abilities to communicate with each other. But when the mask comes off, a monster is unleashed.
These children stay at the home of Miss Peregine who has the power to turn into a Peregine Falcon.
