I was wondering if anyone knew what song is playing in the new Charlie and the Chocolate Factory movie with Johnny Depp when they are in the TV room and the chocolate bar is being teleported. It's an instrumental that's been in many different films and commercials... It kind of goes da da da DA DA da da da... Something of that sort. Kind of sounds like the olympics song with lots of drumming. Please help!
is it any of these?

Going by your description (and da da da DA DA thing), it's definitely "Also Sprach Zarathustra" by Strauss.

More commonly known these days as the "Theme From 2001".
