First Look At The Annie Trailer!
We can’t wait for the “Annie” remake to hit the theaters! Anticipation is mounting for the modern remake of “Annie” starring Quvenzhane Wallis, so the folks at Sony Pictures have decided to tease us with an awesome “Annie” trailer to keep us going for the next nice months!
There are so many cute shots of the 10-year-old actress (an Oscar nominee in 2012 for Beasts of the Southern Wild) running New York City with her friends, dog Sandy and yes, those songs that we know and love, like “Tomorrow” and “A Hard Knock Life.”
Wallis stars in the film as the famed orphan, this time from Harlem, appearing alongside Cameron Diaz as Miss Hannigan and Jamie Foxx, who stars as the remixed Daddy Warbucks character, Benjamin Stacks. Stacks develops a relationship with Annie in order to boost his political career, but slowly starts to care for the charming young girl.
It’s produced by Will Smith and Jay Z and also features Rose Byrne, Bobby Cannavale, and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje.
The little star proved she was still a kid who wants to play on her iPad when it came to her movie star perks. Word from TMZ is that Quvenzhane was given unlimited WiFi in her trailer as a part of her deal to star in the film. She was also paid $750,000 to appear in “Annie” (incentives and percentage points could raise her total income from the feature to well over $2 million).
Remember when Willow Smith was first being talked about as the star of “Annie”? Her dad Will stayed on as producer, but looking at the trailer, it seems Willow was probably growing out of the right age for the role. Quvenzhane seems like a great fit!
With Jay Z as a producer, we’re also looking out for the movie soundtrack. Pharrell did his thing with the Despicable Me soundtracks, so the pressure is on Jigga!
The movie hits theaters at Christmas.
Are you excited to see the film?
