New 'Annie' trailer: Quvenzhane Wallis sings, Cameron Diaz sasses
It’s a hard knock life for Annie in the new official trailer for Will Gluck’s modern-day update of the classic comic and musical.
Beasts of the Southern Wild breakout Quvenzhané Wallis stars as the orphaned heroine who gets rescued from Miss Hannigan’s (Cameron Diaz) care to be used as political bait for Jamie Foxx’s wealthy Benjamin Stacks.
For those fond of John Huston’s 1982 classic, this new take on Annie might be a little bit of a shock. The costumes and sets are bright and over the top, “Tomorrow” sounds ever so slightly Auto-Tuned, and the current pop culture references seem to fly fast and furiously.
Check out the trailer after the jump.
