Chalamet is Selling Chocolate in the New Wonka Trailer

The new trailer for the movie Wonka was released, and Timothee Chalamet looks like a natural in the role of the neurotic chocolatier. He’s stepping into the shoes of the legendary Gene Wilder, and looks primed to make it his own. 

I didn’t care about the announcement months ago when the public found out their skinny little heart throb was taking on the titular role. The trailer got me though. This movie looks like it’s going to be pretty fun.

Among the nonsensical journey through the chocolate factory the first movie brings the audience on, it is almost forgotten that our main character is a psychopathic pig, addicted to chocolate, and running a sweatshop. Timothee Chalamet seems like he more than killed the task of combining all of these traits into one psychotic candy salesman. 

The most difficult job for this movie will definitely be the task of finding a way to shove an overweight kid through a complex system of tubes. Since this was easily the best part of the last movie, I think it would be a real missed opportunity to recreate. Maybe Chalamet finds a boy trapped in a pipe and it inspires him to make some chocolate. Even better, what if there is a scene where he gets sucked up into a chocolate vat and has to eat his way out, and that caused his passion for chocolate. Either way, the tubes are the reason we watched in the first place, it needs to be in the prequel. 

Also, Keegan Michael-Key seems to be playing the bad guy. Keegan Michael-Key is very funny.
