Wonka debuted on top at the domestic box office over the weekend, bringing in $39 million. This marks Timothee Chalamet’s second biggest opening, behind Dune at $41 million in 2021. Deadline attributes the film’s success, in part, to its marketing campaign—as partnerships were formed with businesses such as IHOP, Xbox, and the Ferrara Candy Company.
