Just a look at the poster and you can already tell this is going to be a darker, and thusly more accurate depiction of the story.

Don't like what I think is the new Oompa Loompa though...

Actually, the kid blowing bubble gum would be Violet. Mike Teevee is not in the pictures. There's the snobby kid that gets tossed down the egg shaft, the kid that gets sucked into the fudge room, and the kid that turns into a blueberry. But the kid that gets shrunken? Not there.

Still, I always considered "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" to be more a kind of dark humor, like almost all of Dahl's fantastic stories. "Matilda" is probably one of the which followed the story much like Dahl wrote it. Either way, have you read "Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator"? They have freaking Vermicious Knids killing off populations of entire space stations.

This had better be a darker Wonka, or else I'll be quite disappointed.

VMFP, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory was based on the book/play Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

The book was alot darker than the movie, thats why people want this version to be a more accurate depiction of the film.

I hate liking Tim Burton movies because I hate him as a person. It's a paradox. I think this will be a good movie and hopefully will earn Depp an Oscar. I have a feeling he'll be nominated for "Finding Neverland" and deserves to win but Jamie Foxx will win because everyone loves Ray...except me. Plus, the kid playing Charlie is the one who played Peter in "Finding Neverland" and I swear that kid is the boy version of Dakota Fanning. Damn he was good. Anyways, I can't wait for this one.

What have you got against Burton?

Looking forward to it, I've quite liked every Burton movie I've seen and this will be no different. Plus, there's the added boon of Depp portraying a darker Wonka.

This will surely rock the pants.
