On December 15, the movie debuted in the US and Canada domestic markets.

The reaction of critics and viewers to Wonka

The majority of critics greeted Wonka with nothing but praise when it was released. Some people complimented Timothée Chalamet’s performance but criticized the script. Throughout its lengthy theatrical run, the film managed to maintain a strong box office performance thanks to the enthusiastic reception this performer received from the audience.

The present state of Wonka at the box office

The Timothée Chalamet film has persevered through a demanding month of release in theaters, outlasting the likes of DCEU’s Aquaman 2. It has surprisingly held steady, and as of right now, according to Box Office Mojo, the total at the global box office is $391.92 million.

Of that total, $147.52 million came from the North American box office, with the remaining $244.40 million coming from international sales. Wonka wants to make well over $200 million in his lifetime in the United States.

Breakeven and returns for Wonka

Variety reports that Wonka has a $125 million budget, but they do not know what else will cost, such as marketing. Accordingly, Wonka has already achieved commercial success based on the fundamental box office rule, which stipulates that a movie must make twice its budget in order to break even.

The movie Wonka has already made much more than its breakeven point, which is $250 million according to the budget. Once breakeven is subtracted from the $391.92 million global total, the Timothée Chalamet film has returns of $147.52 million.
