Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

This is yet another revisit of movies I've looked at before in a little more detail.

Master director Tim Burton takes on the children's classic and adds his unique vision to it no doubt.

He is reunited with his often partner- in- crime, Johnny Depp who also never misses a chance to be in an off beat film. I would imagine this will be nothing like the Gene Wilder version and probably will have a darker tone to it.

The Story:
Acclaimed director Tim Burton brings his vividly imaginative style to the beloved Roald Dahl classic Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, about eccentric chocolatier Willy Wonka (Depp) and Charlie, a good-hearted boy from a poor family who lives in the shadow of Wonka's extraordinary factory. Long isolated from his own family, Wonka launches a worldwide contest to select an heir to his candy empire. Five lucky children, including Charlie, draw golden tickets from Wonka chocolate bars and win a guided tour of the legendary candy-making facility that no outsider has seen in 15 years. Dazzled by one amazing sight after another, Charlie is drawn into Wonka's fantastic world in this astonishing and enduring story.

I love this Artwork, Burtons no doubt

The only thing missing is the yellow brick road
