'Annie' Trailer Takes Quvenzhané Wallis To The Hard Knock Life


The first trailer for the modern remake of "Annie" is here, and it is full of adorable shots of Oscar nominee Quvenzhané Wallis as Annie with her dog Sandy, familiar songs such as "A Hard Knock Life" and plenty of dreams about tomorrow. Wallis stars in the film as the famed little orphan, appearing alongside Cameron Diaz as Miss Hannigan and Jamie Foxx, who stars as the rebranded 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.

The upcoming film was produced by Will Smith and Jay Z and also features Rose Byrne, Bobby Cannavale, and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje. Emma Thompson is one of the credited screenwriters. Take a look at the trailer for "Annie" below.
