Johnny Depp as Willy Wonka ~ it's all kinds of creepy

You've seen the trailer, right? If not you must have at least seen this poster:

Tim Burton is doing a re-make of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. That poster really isn't that bad... but have you seen photos of Johnny as Mr. Wonka? Holy hell. It's creepy as anything I've ever seen. Honestly, he scares me. Hold me.

This last photo is enough to give me nightmares. Children, run! Run to your parents! Scary shiz-nit. Scary. And I adore Johnny. He's a doll. Wasn't a huge fan in his pretty boy days of 21 Jump Street. Heck, who am I trying to kid. He's still a pretty boy. But not here. Here he appears to be a frightening psychotic child killer..... *shudder*

Needless to say, I have zero intentions of seeing this movie. Now, Pirates of the Caribbean 2 and 3 - I'm there. All I can say is, the kid had better not wanna see Charlie or he's going to be sorely disappointed. Yipes!

LOL Agreed, this is creeping me out. I mean I love him as a pirate...but as Willy Wonka? I won't look at gobstoppers the same again for a long time!!!
The trailer if freaky...and that is the best word I could come up with...

Willy Wonka is creepy in general I think! Gene Wilder was creepy playing him too. I LOVE the old movie, don't know if the new one could beat the old one though!

I'm sure you're right... yet as a child I never felt Gene Wilder was a creepy dude as Willy Wonka. Come to think of it, all the adults in my life at that time didn't care for him - but I always figured he was bizarre, which went with the movie.

I always liked the old movie, too. I don't know though... with Tim Burton there is bound to some different things going on. That alone almost makes me want to see it.
