Charlie and the Chocolate Factory movie poster

Here is a look at the final Charlie and the Chocolate Factory movie poster for Tim Burton’s upcoming film. Johnny Depp stars as mysterious and eccentric candy maker Willy Wonka, in this update of the classic film (and children’s book) Willy Wonka and the Choclate Factory.

It’s interesting to note the poster is using a “gallery”, which is a series of small photos of the film’s costars. The gallery as a movie poster device was popular in the 1970s, especially on posters for star-studded disaster films. Disaster films aside, the gallery in this case highlights the popular children’s characters in the Wonka film: Mike TeaVee, Augustus Gloop, Charlie Bucket, Violet Beauregarde, and Veruca Salt.
