Pre-Christmas projections of the Timothée Chalamet-starring Wonka have experienced a significant increase.

According to reports, the film is now looking to open with $35 million USD instead of the $20 million USD forecast from several weeks ago, with other reports even noting that it could debut with $40 million USD. ComicBook notes that the new trailers and Chalamet’s red carpet and recent Saturday Night Live appearance helped push those numbers up, especially with the end of the SAG-AFTRA strike.

Helmed by Paul King, Wonka will tell the story of a young Willy Wonka from Roald Dahl’s beloved children’s book. Joining Chalamet in the cast are the likes of Keegan-Michael Key, Sally Hawkins. Rowan Atkinson, Jim Carter, Olivia Colman and Hugh Grant, to name a few.

Wonka hits US theaters December 15.
