Tim Burton is ready to take us all to another one of his mysterious worlds -- this time, the one conceived by Ransom Riggs in his best-selling otherworldly novel "Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children."
As fans of the extraordinary book no doubt remember, even in text form the story was filled with gobs of stirring imagery, mostly pictures of kids with otherworldly talents and features on display. So, this adaptation is one that comes with a whole new realm of built-in expectations.
But from the looks of these first set pics, Burton's just the guy to give cinematic life to the unique ambiance of this tale because we've got chills already and we have yet to glimpse the cast -- which is stacked with the likes of Asa Butterfield, Eva Green, Samuel L. Jackson, Judi Dench, Allison Janney, and Rupert Everett.
Take a peek at what we've seen so far.
