Timothee's Wonka movie is shaping up to be a big hit!

Will he be Oscar nominated?

No — instead the academy will give Gene Wilder a posthumous Oscar nomination for his Wonka after they see this hot mess.

In the Wonka clips I’ve seen, Tim’s line delivery is flat and without cadence. He’s overshadowed by the supporting actors who have better comedic skills. In comparison, he looks like some random guy who won a contest to be in a movie.

Yeah,…no. Wonka will be a horrific flop. I like the idea of an origin story, but Timothee is not the guy to play him. Terrible casting based on name recognition. Won’t work.

Can the Gene Wilder version of Wonka be described as a bit sinister? I don't recall feeling that way other than his meltdown towards the end when he finds out Charlie and Grandpa drank the fizzy lifting drinks. For the most part he's cheerfully passive aggressive.

[quote] ‘Wonka’ First Reactions Praise Timothée Chalamet as ‘Infinitely Charming,’ ‘Intoxicating’ and ‘Pitch-Perfect’

[quote] Gizmodo senior reporter Germain Lussier heaped praise on Chalamet, calling him the reason alone to see the film. “He’s infinitely charming & a blast to watch,” Lussier wrote, although he added: “The movie around him isn’t as good but it’s enjoyable. The story & tone fight against each other leaving it a bit muddled. And yet it’s filled with joy & the songs are delightful.”

That person, however, did describe it how some us predicted - a solid, family holidays time movie. He also described Wonka as outright musical.

As for Chalamet, he said he 's very good, but you could see he was struggling with convincingly conveying the necessary "whimsical" aspects of the character.

[quote]To Willy, chocolate is no mere confectionary treat. It’s a religion, something that will elevate you and change your day, your mood, your life. And that belief is incarnated in Chalamet’s deliriously infectious performance. It’s a trick to play someone this keen and innocent and eager and make him magnetically delightful, and Chalamet has the star charisma to bring it off.

So in other words, exactly as the trailer suggested, he was totally unable to convey anything of the danger or weirdness of Wonka

[quote]As a movie, “Wonka” may be the squarest big-scale Hollywood musical in decades. How square is it? In an era that has given us such visionary next-level musicals as “La La Land,” “Moulin Rouge!,” and the shockingly underrated “The Greatest Showman,” as well as such hip and vibrant Broadway adaptations as “Chicago,” “Hairspray,” “In the Heights,” “Mamma Mia!,” “Les Misérables,” and “Rent,” “Wonka,” as directed and co-written by Paul King (who made the “Paddington” films), plays like a more visually limber version of some singing-and-dancing relic from the late-studio-system era of “Oliver!” (1968) and “Scrooge” (1970). It’s so square it makes “Mary Poppins Returns” look edgy.

[quote]Chalamet presents his Wonka to us in charming, harmless Leading Man mode. He smiles the same smile he gives to red carpet fans as he takes soulless selfies, ripping through his lines at a rapid staccato. He sings, he twirls, he stretches his charisma thin. Every once in a while he breaks out of the mold, his angularity morphing into a little gremlin performing an inelastic imitation of Jim Carrey’s zaniness. Like so much of the movie, his stranger and more enticing tastes are coated in a thick, plain layer of milk chocolate. Chalamet is thankfully not trying to be Gene Wilder, though he sometimes skews near Johnny Depp’s off-putting performance simply by being so smoothed-down. You wonder how such a toothless character could even eat candy in the first place.

It's a kids' movie so nowadays it has to be bland and safe and nice. Even if they had an actor who could recreate Gene Wilder's performance with the sinister undercurrents, which is true to Roald Dahl, they wouldn't want to.

Why R173 Dune 2021 was released in United States theaters and streaming on HBO Max on October 22. Dune was a box office success, earning $402 million on a $165 million budget. It was well received by critics and audiences, with praise for Villeneuve's direction and screenplay, the visual effects, ambition, costume design, Hans Zimmer's musical score, cinematography, and faithfulness to the source material. The film won six awards at the 94th Academy Awards and was nominated in four other categories, including Best Picture. It also received numerous other accolades.

Its opening weekend domestic BO was $40M.

The typical math is on the order of breakeven equaling about 150% of the published production budget. By that metric, Dune 2021 was a modest box office success and Wonka needs on the order of 200M to breakeven.

Of course, Wilder's version is listed as having a 4M box office on 3M budget, so it isn't like it was a huge success either.

I thought (generally) half of US box office goes to studio, but only 25% of foreign gross goes to studio. Promotion costs get added to overall costs, so the profit model is not great unless it’s a hit. So most big budget movies lose money but make it up from streaming and licensing (if they are lucky).

That means movie theaters make their revenue somewhere else: concession stands.

.Wonka’s Sweet Success: Worldwide Profits Double Production Costs

According to Mojo, a U.S. box office tracking site on the 26th, ‘Wonka’ ranked second in the North American box office following ‘Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom’ recording a revenue of $83.56 million (approximately 108.8 billion KRW). The worldwide box office revenue astonishingly reached $254.86 million (approximately 332 billion KRW), making it into the top 20 of the 2023 worldwide box office, doubling its production cost of $125 million. In addition, it continues its box office success by scoring high with real audiences including a 90% popcorn index on Rotten Tomatoes and an A- on CinemaScore.

Pick a movie chain. Go to their corporate website, and view their annual or quarterly report. I'll pick AMC, and linked to their most recent quarterly. Go the Financial Statements. Two key figures you're looking for - the revenue from Admissions, and then the costs of exhibition.

[quote]Admissions (Q2023) $797.7 (Q2022) $545.3 (Y2023) $2,075.9 (Y2022) $1,640.1

[quote]Film exhibition costs (Q2023) $398.5 (Q2022) $263.2 (Y2023) $1,027.8 (Y2022) $781.7

Gosh, would you look at that. Those film exhibition costs - the sums paid to the distributors and studios - just happen to be right around half the revenue brought in by admissions. What a coincidence!

But hey, I'm sure some random blog is more reliable than what a company files with the SEC.

'It is key that the movie is showing longevity despite so many different movies taking up space in theaters. This means that Wonka could continue to leg out to a strong result in the new year, as holiday season hits tend to perform consistently through January. This is what buoyed the December 2017 sleeper hit The Greatest Showman, which eventually earned $434.9 million worldwide despite a meager $8.8 million opening.'

SCREERANT

by Anonymousreply 334December 30, 2023 9:53 AM

The Greatest Showman was the 21st highest-grossing movie of 2017.

With this new influx of cash, the Wonka musical is already holding a solid place as the 18th highest-grossing movie of 2023 worldwide. Once international grosses for Tuesday have been factored in, it may have already risen to No. 17, above the smash hit Creed III. While it may be difficult for it to rise above No. 15, where The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes sits at $315.3 million, the movie is a strong performer that shouldn’t be overlooked for its future potential given its ability to claw its way back up the chart.

But it was a diversified crop of family and adult films which got us there including the Warner Bros.' trifecta of Wonka (which is leading the 4-day New Year's Box Office with $33M), Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom (4-day $26M) and The Color Purple ($16.2M 4-day); as well as adult movies like The Boys in the Boat ($11.6M 4-day) and even YA romantic comedy, Anyone But You ($11.3M 4-day).

I don't know why anybody is surprised and/or dismayed that Wonka is pulling in audiences.

It's the Winter holidays, kids are out of school, parents want to park them somewhere for a couple of hours, and, given that Wonka is better (its production value and appeal can't be denied) than some of the other schlock that's offered as kid and family friendly, why not go to Wonka?

I also think there is something to the observation that, given the state of the world right now, people are looking for light escapism, and Wonka is just what the doctor ordered.

The showing I attended was damn near sold-out and those there were from all ages and genders, tots to teens to adults and older adults and a lot of them looked like they were in family groups.

And I write this as not invested one way or another when it comes to Chalamet.

The film's $120 million budget, combined with an assumed marketing budget of over $100 million, Wonka needs to generate at least $240 million at the box office to make a profit for Warner Bros. While it was originally supposed to hit theaters in March 2023, the film's new December release date couldn't have been better timing for generating big audience numbers, as families and groups of friends may choose a trip to the movies to see Wonka as a holiday outing.

Wonka is a big success. It will probably do around $500 million when all is said and done, which is much better than anyone predicted. Like The Wizard of Oz, there is a lot of love out there for Willie Wonka.

It's funny to me how audiences very much want to see fun and lively musicals, like Wonka and The Greatest Showman, but don't give a damn about Sondheim or Andrew Lloyd Weber musicals. Even Mary Poppins made $350 million, while Spielberg's West Side Story only made $76 million. Sondheim and ALW are box-office poison.

[Quote] Just got back from a showing. First of all, the trailer is very misleading: Hugh Grant is barely in the movie. In regards to Chalamet, his iteration is I'm sorry to say by far the worst. His quirky moments were cringeworthy and he struggled with the tone shifts like when he had to recall a sad memory. He just doesn't have the warmth required for the character.

'It is key that the movie is showing longevity despite so many different movies taking up space in theaters. This means that Wonka could continue to leg out to a strong result in the new year, as holiday season hits tend to perform consistently through January. This is what buoyed the December 2017 sleeper hit The Greatest Showman, which eventually earned $434.9 million worldwide despite a meager $8.8 million opening.'

Like "Barbie," "Wonka" apparently offers escapism and childhood nostalgia for adults, colorful charm and fantasy for kids, and an appealing star (or two) going for it, as well as timing for when children are at home and underfoot.

I for one am not interested in the slightest, but then I doubt if I'm in the intended audience anyway. Plus I've never seen the Wilder or Depp iterations.

But with potentially a floor of at least $180 million domestic, it would actually be the only film to outgross Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour since its release and the highest-grossing film at the box office since the Barbenheimer phenomenon. That will make it one of the top 10 films of the year domestically.

The Timmy haters and the Wonka musical haters have nobody to blame but themselves. If he gets more work because of this, it's because you watched the movie. All you had to do was not watch the movie.

Timothee will probably win the Golden Globe for "Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy," because that category is really weak this year.

by Anonymousreply 475January 4, 2024 2:36 AM

R475: He's definitely in third place behind Wright and Giamatti but Giamatti is clearly winning this. The HFPA clearly liked The Holdovers more than American Fiction and Wonka and they love to predict the Oscars. Personally, I'm hoping The Holdovers sweeps at every place.

Oppenheimer was a huge hit both with audiences and critics; it will undoubtedly win Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Director. It's that rare serious, prestige film that was an enormous box office success. It can't miss.

[quote] Part of Wonka's success certainly speaks to the continued value of the IP, but it also cements Chalamet as a true movie star. Prior to release, the film was positioned as a true test of the actor's ability to open a film, and its success confirms his status as a box office draw. Few young actors have achieved such a position in the new blockbuster movie landscape, but, after Little Women and Dune, Chalamet has evidently become a figure whose star power can sell a movie.

R577: Fuck off scumbag. The one good thing to come out of this Kylie relationship is that he’s not great acting wise and certainly not the next Leo type movie star. Still no links saying it’s profitable, eh?

R580, You might want to re-read your post carefully.

And yet....

Of the Golden Globes, Critics Choice, and SAG awards, in all categories available, "Wonka" has received only three nominations and no wins (yet. SAG to come):

GG = Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical.

CC = Best Costume Design. Most Promising Young Actor.

SAG = None.

Oh, Dearing myself, to wit: Since "Wonka" has no SAG nominations, it won't win any SAG awards. No need, then, for "yet."

I read on a fan site that Timmy is rumored to be receivin a special surprise Oscar both for his astonishing work in Wonka, and for making it the success that's revived Hollywood singlehandedly. Everything is in preparation to make Oscar Night...WONKA NIGHT!!

R588 is a mentally ill, child obsessed psychopath.

Timothee is 27 years old.

R588 needs to be committed to a mental hospital.

R592: Either you’re an algorithm or a 13 year old cunt. Either way you’re just embarrassing yourself at this point. No Oscar nominations for Wonka and he lost the Golden Globe (they’re pretty easy to win by the way). Still no links saying it’s profitable, eh. The studio lost some money on it.

Hideous unfuckable Matt Anscher r593

TIMMY, and all of Datalounge, and the world, spits upon you. FEEL THE POWER OF WONKA.

Why haven’t those Mexicans from Salinas killed you yet?

Wow Wonka is already available on Amazon starting tomorrow. Oh yeah that's for sure a sign of a movie setting the box office on fire.
