If you're looking for some fresh nightmare fuel, then look no further than the first trailer for the eagerly awaited Wonka movie.

The fresh take on Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory stars Timothée Chalamet as a young Willy Wonka and yep, that is Hugh Grant dressed as an Oompa Loompa.

Truly titillating stuff.

It was revealed back in April that Grant would take on the role of the fictional characters brought in to run the chocolate factory; a slightly different role from the chick-flick antagonist character we've grown used to seeing him play.

But while excitement for the star-studded film is at an all-time high, some fans have been left a tad concerned that they might be seeing Grant as an Oompa Loompa when they close their eyes tonight.

"I'm sorry Hugh Grant Oompa Loompa is gonna' be in my nightmares now," one wrote on Twitter, while another added: "...Huh, that looks quite a bit better than I feared. Although Hugh Grant Oompa Loompa is likely gonna give me nightmares."

And a third commented: "Hugh Grant as an Oompla Loompa is nightmare fuel."

Hugh Grant's latest role is already giving people nightmares.

An official synopsis for Wonka says: "An origin story that explores the vivid, mythical beginnings of the imaginative young inventor before he becomes the renowned scrumdiddlyumptious Mozart of chocolate."

In addition to Chalamet and Grant, we can expect to see a whole host of famous faces, including Keegan-Michael Key, Rowan Atkinson, Matt Lucas, Sally Hawkins, Olivia Colman and Jim Carter, to name a few.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Key promised the film would be 'wondrous' and 'epic,' and judging by the first whimsical trailer, he's absolutely right.

"It’s a nice, big, full, beautiful piece of art, and Paul King, who directed it, is a delightful human being who has this wonderful, childlike heart," he continued, before going on to praise co-star Chalamet.

"He was the perfect person to direct the project. There’s this wonderful effortlessness about how he plays Wonka, not to mention the fact that there’s this hopeful quality that he gives the character, a kind of indomitable quality that he’ll never quit, he’s always up for the next thing.

"He’s like, ‘Okay, that didn’t work out? We’ll do this and we’ll try something else'.

"Sacré bleu! This kid, you know, he drips charisma and a wonderful confidence. He’s just a really delicious artist."

Wonka will land in cinemas on December 15 - so until then, we'll see Grant in our nightmares.
