Johnny Depp, his wife Vanessa Paradis, director Tim Burton, Melanie Griffith, Annasophia Robb and Freddie Highmore were all in attendance for the premiere of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
Depp stars as Willy Wonka in this new adaptation of the Roald Dahl classic. Five golden tickets are hidden beneath the wrappers of Mr. Willy Wonka's delicious chocolate bars - five golden tickets which will change the lives of those who find them.
The winning children are invited through the gates of Mr. Wonka's Chocolate Factory to see all the secrets and magic inside and to meet Mr. Wonka and his staff of Oompa-Loompas. For Charlie Bucket, a poor boy living within sight of the factory, winning the fifth and final golden ticket is just the beginning of an unforgettable adventure.
The event took place at Grauman's Chinese Theatre in the Hollywood section of Los Angeles July 10, 2005. The film opens in the United States July 15, 2005.
