[ # ] Wonka looks as sweet as chocolate
July 11th, 2023 under Hugh Grant, Movies, Timothée Chalamet

I grew up watching Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, and I adored Gene Wilder in the lead role.

So anytime I hear that they are doing another version, I expect Willy Wonka to live up to the charisma and magic that Wilder had in the role. Johnny Depp didn’t do it. And I don’t think Timothée Chalamet will either. He does not have that “It Factor” that makes him special for a role like this, at least not in this trailer.

While I don’t see him as the chocolate genius, I can’t wait to see this movie on December 15th. It feels like a fantasy adventure that is perfect for Christmastime, like The Greatest Showman or Mary Poppins.

So it will be fun to watch! That, and let’s be real, we are all going to see Hugh Grant dancing as an Oompa Loompa. We need more of him ASAP!
