Tim Burton is a filmmaker who always seemed drawn towards the peculiar. So his latest movie, Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children, strikes us as an ideal fit. Based on the book by Ransom Riggs, it’s a typically Burtonesque tale of fantasy and intrigue, detailing a magical orphanage populated with mysterious children and shape-shifting protectors. Empire has an exclusive first look at the film.

Eva Green, reteaming with Burton following their last collaboration on Dark Shadows, playing the title role of Miss Peregrine. Speaking exclusively to Empire, Burton describes Miss Peregrine as a “weird Mary Poppins like character—a strong and mysterious person who looks like she could turn into a bird. That’s Eva.”

This is a film dominated by fierce, powerful women – including Dame Judi Dench as Miss Avocet. “In the peculiar world, women are the protectors,” Burton explains. “Miss Avocet is the head of another peculiar school. But, much like the bird in her name, she’s a bit more of a nervous, flighty energy than Miss Peregrine.”

Here’s the full lineup of peculiar children, each endowed with unusual skills or powers. “I was a little worried about working with so many kids again,” Burton told us, “but they were all such professionals on set. You would never believe that it was some of these kids’ first big film.”

In a typically starry cast, Asa Butterfield and Ella Purnell lead up the child actors, while Chris O’Dowd, Allison Janney, Rupert Everett, Terence Stamp, and Samuel L. Jackson join Green and Dench. Burton is directing from a script by Jane Goldman, adapted from Riggs’ novel.

Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children flies into US cinemas on September 30, ahead of a UK release on October 7. Be sure to pick up a copy of next month’s Empire (on sale March 31) for more exclusive tidbits.

Although Ella only has a small part in the film, and shes not in the trailer, we are excited to share with you the full length trailer for TARZAN, the film is scheduled for release in July next year.

Skarsgård told USA Today how the classic plot will be tweaked for the 2016 version: “It’s almost the opposite of the classic tale, where it’s about taming the beast. This is about a man who’s holding back and slowly as you peel off the layers, he reverts back to a more animalistic state and lets that side of his personality out.”

It looks like Ella is dating her (Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children) co-star. The actress took to instagram to post this adorable video of them and wrote “6 weeks of waiting was more than worth one afternoon with you ? until next time my love, counting down the days“. Either that, or they’re making another movie together?!
