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!
Official Synopsis: 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.

Sony Pictures release ANNIE on Friday, December 19, 2014.
I absolutely love the level of detail Jimmy Kimmel puts into making his Show funny and this week alone he had two stellar moments including two Parody-type Music Videos which got me laughing!
Officially number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 this week, Robin Thicke and Pharrell joined-in on the fun with Kimmel and SidekickGuillermo, with a hilarious re-shot take on Blurred Lines. You won’t believe what they spell with those balloons! I love how annoyed Thicke looks the whole time.
Three months ago, White House Down Co-Stars Jamie Foxx and new Dad Channing Tatum were on the Show, the former simply declaring “Channing is the best!”. They made an entire Music Video (appropriate for late-night viewing) and Track poking-fun at our Tatum-obsessed Society. Suggestively vulgar, they bring-on the laughs with the help of Miley Cyrus, Olivia Munn, Gabourey Sidibe, Matt Damon and more! Kimmel even gets all confused not knowing what the Song really is about.
Simply not getting enough of the amazing DJANGO UNCHAINED festivities tonight in Toronto last night, I went back for a double-helping in New York City, scoping-out the World Premiere of this latest Masterpiece from Quentin Tarantino. The Stars came-out in full force in support of the Film at Zeigfeld Theatre, including the likes of Olivia Wilde, John Legend, Zac Efron, 50 Cent, Zach Braff, Darren Aronofsky, Natasha Lyonne, Patrick Wilson, Liv Tyler, Jeremy Piven and oh so many more. Cast Members Jamie Foxx, Kerry Washington, Christoph Waltz, Don Johnson and Leonardo Dicaprio joined iconic Filmmaker Tarantino, whom I was lucky enough to meet in Toronto. Stargazers didn’t even know which direction to run first as the Celebrities poured onto the Red Carpet and out of the venue after the three-hour-long Action-Drama-Western-Thriller ended after 11:00 PM.
I was even lucky enough to get to meet Oscar Winners Foxx and Waltz. Also, I was super-stoked to get Snaps with the handsome Stars Wilson and Piven. Leone has never looked better and what a pleasure it was to meet the Man (Aronofsky) who helmed one of my all-time Faves, Black Swan.
Watch some brief Clips I got of Foxx and Dicaprio arriving at the Venue:

Alliance Films releases DJANGO UNCHAINED in theatres Christmas Day.
A Legend is before us. One night before the big Premiere of his DJANGO UNCHAINED in New York City, iconic Filmmaker Quentin Tarantino brought a Crowd out to Scotiabank Theatre tonight here in Toronto. Journalists and Fans alike lined the Red Carpet tonight to catch a glimpse of Tarantino who hasn’t been in the City since premiering his Oscar-worthy Inglorious Basterds here back in 2009 at the same venue.
This new Action-Thriller-Drama centers around an enslaved Bounty Hunter’s revenge against the gross injustices witnessed against others – including his Wife – at the hands of a sadistic Plantation Owner. It stars a brilliant Cast including Jamie Foxx, Leonardo Dicaprio, Christoph Waltz, Kerry Washington and Samuel L. Jackson. Tarantino tells The Toronto Star‘s Peter Howell, “I feel shame for my Country that it happened”, on the topic of Slavery.
Measuring Fan reactions, the Filmmaker sat-in on the Screening tonight for well-over two hours before being escorted into his Escalade by two Security Guards.
Thanks to my dear Friend Keith McCalmont who was super-kind to send a Photo of Tarantino on the Carpet with another good Friend, Melissa DiMarco below. And of course, I had to have my moment with Tarantino also, although when he reached over to grab my Camera to take a Selfie of us, the lens seemed to have been knocked out of its socket! Oh well, if it was going to be one person whom it would be fitting to break my Camera, it definitely would be him! Special thanks to John Vassal who was awesome to capture the moment on his Camera still!
I’ll be out in NYC tomorrow capturing some of the Highlights at the Premiere. Wish me luck!
Alliance Films releases Django Unchained in theatres Christmas Day.

Looks good! Official Character Posters for Quentin Tarantino‘s DJANGO UNCHAINED have just been released and here we get some intense Staredowns from: Jamie Foxx as Django, Christoph Waltz as Dr. King Schultz, Leonardo DiCaprio as Calvin, Kerry Washington as Broomhilda, and Samuel L. Jackson as Stephen.
“In my world you’ve gotta get dirty. And that’s what I’m doing. Getting dirty.”
Could they stuff any more clever One-Liners into a Trailer? Quentin Tarantino does it again with this just-released Trailer for Django Unchained, giving us a good long look at what we can expect from this Western Opus starring Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio, Christoph Waltz, Kerry Washington, Samuel Jackson, Amber Tamblyn, Don Johnson and Jonah Hill (who knew?!).
Foxx stars as Django, who teams with Christoph Waltz to rescue his Wife (Washington) from a ruthless Plantation Owner (DiCaprio).
Tarantino always has gone on about his love for Spaghetti Westerns, so at long last he gets to indulge himself (and us!) by fulfilling this long-time wish of his. DiCaprio is channeling some delicious evilness here – I need more of that!
