The modern-day ‘Annie’ has arrived, and you can bet your bottom dollar that we’re thrilled about this new trailer. Sure, we were hesitant at first if the classic Broadway hit would be good on the big screen — but we were proved wrong!
Cameron Diaz takes on the role of the snarky and angry Miss Hannigan in the 2014 version of Annie, but Quvenzhané Wallis, the adorable 10-year-old who stars as the orphan definitely steals the show — along with the billionaire who runs into her in the street, played by Jamie Foxx. Watch the hilarious trailer here!
‘Annie’ Trailer — Cameron Diaz, Quvenzhané Wallis Impress
This is not what we were expecting! The official trailer for Annie, the 2014 film that hits theaters on Christmas 2014, is out and now we’re counting down the days. The film of course sticks with the original story — but not too much where it’s outdated.
Instead of Daddy Warbucks, billionaire Benjamin Stacks, played by Jamie, runs into Annie on the streets of Harlem, where he is running for mayor. Of course, taking in a foster child looks good for him. But not to worry, he’ll be a good guy.
Throw in the “Sometimes what you’re looking for is right in front of your face” line and we remember the whole reason we loved Annie from the beginning.
The updated version does have some updates — like talk of Facebook and George Clooney. When Miss Hanigan yells at the orphans to clean because the city is coming to inspect, they ask “aren’t they supposed to give notice?”
Naturally, she responds, “Aren’t I supposed to be married to George Clooney?”
Alright, we’ll stop spoiling it and let you watch — then let us know what you think!
