Chocolate fun at cinemas now
Based on the book by Roald Dahl, the film tells the story of Charlie Bucket who wins the chance of a lifetime to tour the chocolate factory owned by Willy Wonka.
Freddie Highmore, fresh from his impressive performance in Finding Neverland, plays the role of young Charlie, while Johnny Depp makes another star turn as Wonka.
Depp proves his versatility as his latest role marks a distinct change from the characters he played in Finding Neverland, Secret Window and Pirates Of The Caribbean.
There are also supporting roles for Hollywood stars such as Helena Bonham-Carter, James Fox and Christopher Lee.
The film reunites Depp with the creative juices of director Tim Burton. The pair have also joined forces on the forthcoming animation Corpse Bride, with Richard E Grant, Joanna Lumley and Albert Finney.
