#FIRSTLOOK: SEE THE NEW TRAILER FOR “ANNIE” STARRING QUVENZHANE WALLIS
We all grew-up in the ’80s adoring ANNIE, so I must admit I had my doubts hearing of an upcoming Remake. I’m sorry, but Cameron Diaz just makes this entire Trailer. I’d never imagine her as Miss Hannigan, but it would appear to work! And although Willow Smith originally was cast in the iconic titular role, adorable Quvenzhané Wallis does just fine here. We’re actually excited to see this!
Academy Award® nominee Quvenzhané Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) stars as Annie, a young, happy foster kid who’s also tough enough to make her way on the streets of New York in 2014. Originally left by her parents as a baby with the promise that they’d be back for her someday, it’s been a hard knock life ever since with her mean foster mom Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz). But everything’s about to change when the hard-nosed tycoon and New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx) – advised by his brilliant VP, Grace (Rose Byrne) and his shrewd and scheming campaign advisor, Guy (Bobby Cannavale) – makes a thinly-veiled campaign move and takes her in. Stacks believes he’s her guardian angel, but Annie’s self-assured nature and bright, sun-will-come-out-tomorrow outlook on life just might mean it’s the other way around.
