Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children Synopsis:
Based upon the best-selling novel by Ransom Riggs and directed by Tim Burton, this unforgettable motion picture experience stars Eva Green, Asa Butterfield, Ella Purnell, Allison Janney, Terence Stamp, and Rupert Everett with Judi Dench and Samuel L. Jackson.

When Jake (Butterfield) discovers clues to a mystery that spans alternate realities and times, he uncovers a secret refuge known as Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As he learns about the residents and their unusual abilities, Jake realizes that safety is an illusion, and danger lurks in the form of powerful, hidden enemies. Jake must figure out who is real, who can be trusted, and who he really is.

Morgan Synopsis:
From Oscar-nominated producer Ridley Scott and director Luke Scott comes a visceral, edge-of-your-seat thriller with an all-star cast starring Kate Mara, Anya Taylor-Joy, Paul Giamatti, Toby Jones, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Rose Leslie. Inside a remote, top-secret lab, a group of scientists are working on an experiment that is leading the way for the next steps in human evolution. But when the experiment’s subject – a genetically designed “human” (Taylor-Joy) – triggers a terrifying event, those involved must decide if the promise of infinite potential outweighs the incalculable danger.
