A sweet treat!

This is for all those keeping track, Warner Bros. Wonka starring Timothée Chalamet has passed $150m worldwide.

It’s a sweet treat, as the $125 million-budgeted family film has maintained momentum around the holidays. Wonka has earned an impressive “A-” CinemaScore from audiences. Critics also have praised the film, giving it an 83% “fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes. This positive reaction suggests that the PG-rated movie will likely stand strong amidst competition from upcoming releases like Universal and Illumination’s animated Migration, Warner’s musical adaptation of The Color Purple, and the DC Comics sequel Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.

The movie has achieved significant success in various global markets, with the top-performing regions contributing to its impressive box office performance.

United Kingdom follows closely with $23 million, indicating a substantial fan base in the UK.

In Mexico, the film has garnered $11 million, while Germany, Spain, and Japan contribute $6.8 million, $6.4 million, and $6.3 million, respectively, demonstrating widespread international appeal.
