I probably live under a rock and everyone else already knew about this film but I just saw the new trailer for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

All I can say is Burton + Depp + Dahl is a perfect match.

Finally someone may do justice to the book...

It looks like something that would give you nightmares, but looks cool all the same.

Oompa loompa doompety doo
I've got a perfect puzzle for you
Oompa loompa doompety dee
If you are wise you'll listen to me

What do you get when you guzzle down sweets
Eating as much as an elephant eats
What are you at, getting terribly fat
What do you think will come of that
I don't like the look of it

Oompa loompa doompety da
If you're not greedy, you will go far
You will live in happiness too
Like the Oompa Loompa Doompety do
Doompety do

Oompa loompa doompety doo
I've got another puzzle for you
Oompa loompa doompeda dee
If you are wise you'll listen to me

Gum chewing's fine when it's once in a while
It stops you from smoking and brightens your smile
But it's repulsive, revolting and wrong
Chewing and chewing all day long
The way that a cow does

Oompa loompa doompety da
Given good manners you will go far
You will live in happiness too
Like the Oompa Loompa Doompety do

Oompa loompa doompety doo
I've got another puzzle for you
Oompa loompa doompety dee
If you are wise you'll listen to me

Who do you blame when your kid is a brat
Pampered and spoiled like a siamese cat
Blaming the kids is a lie and a shame
You know exactly who's to blame
The mother and the father

Oompa loompa doompety da
If you're not spoiled then you will go far
You will live in happiness too
Like the Oompa Loompa Doompety do

Oompa loompa doompety doo
I've got another puzzle for you
Oompa loompa doompeda dee
If you are wise you'll listen to me

What do you get from a glut of TV
A pain in the neck and an IQ of three
Why don't you try simply reading a book
Or could you just not bear to look
You'll get no
You'll get no
You'll get no
You'll get no
You'll get no commercials

Oompa loompa doompety da
If you're not greedy you will go far
You will live in happiness too

Death is nothing, but to live defeated and inglorious is to die daily.

I've only ever seen two Manson video clips, and one of them was that freakish Charlie-themed one that could give any adult night-mares from the look of the oompa's themselves.

Yeah, this movie has been highly anticipated for a long time, now.

I didn't know the trailer was out yet though... it looks... crazy.

I love when Tim Burton does movies... I get to hear Danny Elfman soundtracks to go with them.

I'm sure what you'll be able to see will be alright. God knows the majority of the film will be obscured by some varriety of smoke or mist. Cause Burton has such a repetoir of styles...he's so versatile, it's like stairing at a mirror within a mirror...alright that's enough.

Well, while he is quite stylized with his visuals, he is still a bit versatile if you consider all the movies he's made...

Mars Attacks
Beetlejuice
Sleepy Hollow
Big Fish
Batman and Batman Returns
Ed Wood
Edward Scissorhands
...yeah... Peewee's Big Adventure
Planet of The Apes (the Re-make, which I hate to admit was Burton)

Nightmare Before Chirstmas (well, he wrote it anyway)

I think you would be hard pressed to say that ALL of these movies look exactly the same.

Oh I thoght the story was wicked awsome, but I just felt like I was going to throw up through-out the course of the movie due to ugly stages and so on.
