That's funny. It looks like the real Matterhorn (not the one at Disneyland), but it still has the Skyway cables running through it! I tried to get a screen shot of it, but I'm not that smart... Maybe someone else can do it.

Just because it's gone doesn't mean I changed my mind!
perhaps something from the original book not in the original "musical" which this movie is based on the book and not musical... we are going to find out the origins of the oompa loompas and how he saved them...
I was a bit hesitant about this movie, But now after seeing this trailer, I won't miss it.
Also It does look like the Matterhorn, It just looks a little more jagged and snowy. I wonder if they used this for the model for the movie.

Funny. I almost missed even seeing the Matterhorn it went by so fast. I wish I could say it looks like a good movie, but I can't stand Tim Burton. I've only liked one movie he ever did (Beetlejuice), and it bugs me that he's messing with a classic in children's literature. I've read Roald Dahl, and his books may be twisted, but they aren't that dark and creepy looking!
Still...if the story takes place in England, how did the Matterhorn get there in the first place?

Have you seen "James & the Giant Peach"? That is a Roald Dahl book and Tim Burton did a wonderful job with it.
As far as Roald Dahl goes - he was pretty dark. Remember Trunchbowl from Matilda? A charcter from a children's story doesn't get much darker than that!
Charlie and The Chocolate Factory was my favorite book as a kid. As much as I loved the 1st movie - they did change quite a bit from the book. Which is weird becuase the screen play is by Roald Dahl.
I can't wait to see the movie. It looks like it will be a lot closer to the book, so maybe down the road someone will actually do the 2nd book. I have watch the old Charlie and the Chocolate Factory a gazillion times, it will be so cool to have a darker version.

I saw this the other day and saw the matterhorn with the gondola above it and thought it was the neatest thing. I'm not too afraid of the moving being too dark. The cinematograpgy seems bright and colorful (but edward scissorhands had that too...). I really can't wait to see this movie.
You would think that being in New York for eight months out of the year would be cool...not when the closest thing you have to Disneyland is the World of Disney Store on Madison.
