The sun will come out tomorrow in the first Annie trailer!

Mar. 5, 2014by:

It’s a hard knock life, for us…

Here it is, as promised, the trailer for the all new updated ANNIE. What can I tell you about it? It’s seems cute enough. Something is a little off though…I’ll let you take a guess on what that is. It is a modern retelling so it won’t be exact to a T, but all the elements are there. Quvenzhané Wallis certainly is adorable.

Since I’ve got that song stuck in my head now, let me pass it along to you.

"When did this city get so musical?"

Synopsis

A Broadway classic that has delighted audiences for generations comes to the big screen with a new, contemporary vision in Columbia Pictures’ comedy, Annie. Director/Producer/Screenwriter Will Gluck teams with producers James Lassiter, Will Smith & Jada Pinkett Smith, and Shawn “JAY Z” Carter, Laurence “Jay” Brown, and Tyran “Ty Ty” Smith with a modern telling that captures the magic of the classic characters and original show that won seven Tony Awards. Celia Costas serves as Executive Producer. The screenplay is by Will Gluck and Aline Brosh McKenna, based on the musical stage play “Annie,” book by Thomas Meehan, music by Charles Strouse, lyrics by Martin Charnin, and on “Little Orphan Annie,” © and ® Tribune Media Services, Inc.

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.

ANNIE starring Jamie Foxx, Quvenzhané Wallis, Rose Byrne, Bobby Cannavale, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, David Zayas, and Cameron Diaz hits theaters on December 25, 2014.

As much of a change it is from a pail, freckled redhead to a black girl...that didn't bother me one bit. Although, (as fake as it would have been) I wish they would have given Quvenzhané Wallis bright red hair. Can't deny she looks very cute. The thing that bothered me most is Jamie Fox's and especially Cameron Diaz's acting. Never disliked either of these two but their acting in this trailer just doesn't seem appealing. It does look extremely cheap, but hopefully the full movie does bring some

I just threw up a little

Omg, remember that Black Annie movie where Cameron Diaz won that Razzie for worst everything?

I do.

This just looks like a horrible remake. It just oozes cheese and horrible one liners. It alienates 60% of the Annie fans with its cast and how they "updated" the story.

the previous annie had no cheese???
You're the only one calling it "Black Annie"
You pulled that 60% out of you ass.
Alienating Annie fans? Are you simple enough to think the target audience is old ass Annie fans?
Are you a Brony?

Diaz is the only miscast in this film. Besides that it looks like an enjoyable 'family film' and nothing more. For what it is I do not think people should get up in arms over.

Who's steaming? I ain't steaming. I'm actually bizarred out by how much of a train wreck this looks. I guess some people care about the shit that is being fed to their kids these days.

Her life in the orphanage just doesn't look that bad. Atleast in the original you kinda felt the kids desperation at finding new homes.

The 80's Annie with Tim Curry honestly didn't need a remake as it still stands up perfectly fine today. The choice of Cameron Diaz for Miss Hannigan is just bizarre.

Even community theatre would've said no to Cameron.

Cameron Diaz has never even been in a stage musical or let alone a play... and it shows. This hurts my everything.

That limo scene with Diaz and Foxx should have used a different take. It felt like improv gone bad. Yikes.

Good lord....

This movie makes me nervous. So awkward that a modern telling of this story does not seem to work. It is like fitting a square peg in a circuit board.

So making a movie is all about having a good time, now this is what happens boys and girls when you do a movie strictly for money......

Okay, now if you do a movie strictly for money you're going to have a bad time, when you try to remake movies that don't need to be remade you're going to have a bad time.......

Not soon enough. That's why I try to support the PT and Wes Anderson's (and others) because they ARE about the originality.

Behold the power of Quvenzhané Wallis, the star of last year's amazing "Beasts of the Southern Wild". She is the only redeeming thing in this garbage. Diaz looks absolutely terrible in this...my god..it is embarrassing

I really enjoyed Easy A and I love musical theatre but why this, why an Annie remake? Cameron Diaz just seems obnoxious, from what I understand, Miss Hannigan is a different shade of unlikeable. The George Clooney joke seems way too precious. Also, Tyran “Ty Ty” Smith gives Joseph "McG" Nichols a run for his money.
