Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Based on the children's frightfest by Roald Dahl, this film adaptation by Tim Burton (Edward Scissorhands) plays up the quirky, slightly more sinister tone of Dahl's original story.
Looking more Prince Vlad than Gene Wilder, Johnny Depp plays Willy Wonka, "the amazing chocolatier", as a reclusive yet oddly charismatic eccentric.
Freddy Highmore (Finding Neverland) appears as Charlie Bucket, with Noah Taylor and Helena Bonham Carter in the roles of Mr and Mrs Bucket. Augustus Gloop, Veruca Salt and other familiar 'bad nuts' are all along for the ride in Burton's visually fantastic update.
