A young orphan named Lewis Barnavelt aids his magical uncle in locating a clock with the power to bring about the end of the world.
The moon phase illustrations on Lewis' walls features all 12 constellations of the Zodiac, plus one more: on the right of the door is Ophiuchus, the "13th sign" of the zodiac, and on the left side is Scorpio.
These two constellations represent the sun's position during the autumn season of the year, which roughly corresponds to the film's release date (September 2018) and the setting.
You'll see, things are quite different here.
Florence uses the phrase "24-7", a saying that didn't come into use until the mid-1980s.
During the animated main-on-end credits roll, the chair chases the griffin topiary with a chainsaw. Then a statement appears: "No chairs or topiary griffins were harmed in the making of this film."
Theatrical versions of the movie are longer by 10 seconds, with a bumper for Universal Parks and Resorts placed before the Amblin Partners logo. this is removed from home video releases however, instead cutting directly to the Amblin Partners logo after the credits.
