15Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children
Take a popular series of books about weird kids with powers that are legally different enough from the X-Men that Marvel can't sue, add in the king of audience-friendly weird movies - Tim Burton - and you should have a pretty big hit on your hands,
That was what 20th Century Fox thought when they started production on Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, the first of a planned series of movies based on the massively successful young adult novels by Ransom Riggs. With three books already on the shelves and a fourth on the way, Fox was looking at a whole slew of hits - all they had to do was not mess up the first one.
Sadly, they messed up the first one. Burton didn't bring the good stuff, and while the movie was financially successful, it didn't get the numbers Fox was hoping for and audiences were rather unimpressed. At this time, no sequel has been announced.
