About this deal

Depp received a Golden Globe nomination for his performance but lost to Joaquin Phoenix for Walk the Line. In the United Kingdom, the premiere was held on July 17 at Leicester Square, only ten days after the July 7 London bombings. McDowell compared the design of the Nut Room to that of a hospital with its plastic finish and sterile colors. Wilder later praised Depp's casting, saying, "If I were going to cast the movie, I would cast Johnny Depp as Willy Wonka because I think he is wonderful. The Inventing Room utilized scrap from the aeronautic industry, defunct confectionery machinery, and old car parts.

In a series reflecting on Burton's filmography, Griffin Newman of Blank Check praised the film, noting that it had a comic energy that was lacking in Burton's subsequent films such as Alice in Wonderland (2010) and Dark Shadows (2012). The contest officially began on June 28 following its announcement on the Today Show, and the first winners were announced on July 8. The release of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory rekindled public interest in Roald Dahl's 1964 book, which appeared on The New York Times Best Seller list from July 3 to October 23, 2005. The company's owner, Willy Wonka, has long closed his factory to the public due to problems concerning industrial espionage, which also caused all his employees, including Charlie's Grandpa Joe, to lose their jobs.On review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, 83% of 229 critical reviews of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory are positive, with an average rating of 7. The actor did not see the original film adaptation, and chose not to see it until after Burton's production, so his portrayal would not be influenced. However, we can't find any evidence directly indicating that this is the case on the dvd case, sleeve, or anything we can find online.

Burton's movie succeeds in doing what far too few films aimed primarily at children even know how to attempt anymore, which is to feed—even to glut—the youthful appetite for aesthetic surprise.The actor was able to play various Oompa-Loompas using split screen photography, digital and front projection effects.
