"An instant holiday classic"
Wonka starring Timothee Chalamet in the titular role had its premiere in London last night and the reviews are starting to come in.

The movie acts as a prequel to the previous Charlie & The Chocolate Factory films, based off the book by Roald Dahl.
While this story is not based on the writings of Roald Dahl, it tells the story of Willy Wonka and how he came to be the famous chocolatier that he is.
Plus, it stars Hugh Grant as a scene-stealing Oompa Loompa!
While Paul King's #Wonka doesn't quite reach the charming and beguiling heights of the Paddington movies, it is still a delightfully sweet treat. Timothée Chalamet's titular dandy is endearing and fun while Hugh Grant's Oompa-Loompa steals every scene he is in. #WonkaMovie pic.twitter.com/SRMSFcJ0Gy
