New Trailer For ANNIE Hits

Did you know "Little Orphan Annie" actually started out as a daily American comic strip back in 1924? Well, now ya do! This new take on the classic musical version is directed by Will Gluck and stars Quvenzhané Wallis in the title role and Jamie Foxx as Will Stacks ("Daddy" Warbucks in the original).

By Mark Cassidy - 5/29/2014



Annie is 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. But everything's about to change when the hard-nosed tycoon and New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks - advised by his brilliant VP, Grace and his shrewd and scheming campaign advisor, Guy - 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 will be with us on December 19, 2014.

At least it's not starring Willow Smith.

INB4 racists.

Where the MBJ Johnny Storm haters at? This can't be Annie because she's black right? It's core to her character.

Not my demographic.

And I dont have any little daughters so pass.
dellamorte1872 - 5/29/2014, 6:41 AM
I agree sorry but they've made a black version of Annie now they did the same with steel magnolias as well. Changing the story to boost demographics
MrReese - 5/29/2014, 6:42 AM
Hmmmmmm.No.
dellamorte1872 - 5/29/2014, 6:42 AM
Saying that tho I'm done with this page screw Annie no matter how the story is presented I won't see it anyway
EricTheGreat - 5/29/2014, 6:45 AM
This looks like it is meant for a younger crowd anyway, so basically dellamorte came here to bitch more about blacks
RorMachine - 5/29/2014, 6:45 AM
I'd say it has more to do with trying to cash in on the rising star of the adorable Quvenzhané Wallis than anything else. But then, I'm not racist.
SuperCat - 5/29/2014, 6:46 AM
LOL!!! @ EricTheGreat
CavEl - 5/29/2014, 6:47 AM
I don't t feel comfortable with a little girl calling a black guy "Daddy Warbucks".

@ Dellamorte1872 - Yep, that's why they made it all black since we know how well majority black cast movies in terms of box office revenue.

Some people are such fools.
CavEl - 5/29/2014, 6:49 AM
@ErictheGreat - Right? That guy has a problem with black people.
MexicanSuperman - 5/29/2014, 6:52 AM
@RorMachine, that is what ever racist says... haha jk bro.
McGee - 5/29/2014, 6:53 AM
Tomorrow... Tomorrow... I can sleep in my bed instead of at work...Tomorrow...

Nobody is perfect Ror.

Racism just comes to us Americans so naturally.
MexicanSuperman - 5/29/2014, 6:59 AM

MexicanSuperman - 5/29/2014, 6:59 AM
@McGee, haha.
soforizo - 5/29/2014, 7:00 AM
I can see dellamorte now:



LMAO!

sKeemAn - 5/29/2014, 7:03 AM
I'm watching this just for the little girl's hair. I love it.

I'm sure I'll be annoyed through it. I don't really like musicals .
McGee - 5/29/2014, 7:03 AM
Each time Obama got elected, we thought we were voting for him to be the next American Idol. Clay Atkin should be President.
TheAmericanPatriot - 5/29/2014, 7:03 AM
I don't understand Hollywood's odd fetish of 'Blackwashing' characters.
sKeemAn - 5/29/2014, 7:06 AM
McGee - 5/29/2014, 7:07 AM
He probably will be too in 20 years, all joking aside.

Not that there's anything wrong with it.
Mrcool210 - 5/29/2014, 7:08 AM
i remember seeing this trailer when i went to see tasm 2 and someone in the theater yelled out "IF YOU WANT TO SEE SPIDER-MAN WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO SEE THIS?!" and i can't say i disagree with him. I don't get the point of an annie remake but whatever hollywood + will smith = money most of the time so that could be their way of thinking. It was probably marketed at tasm cause jaimie foxx was in both movies, despite them both being entirely different
McGee - 5/29/2014, 7:09 AM
@TheAmericanPatriot

Wow...you really live up to your name. LMAO!
Mrcool210 - 5/29/2014, 7:10 AM
also sorry to say, from the looks of this trailer, the kids as a group, can't sing, it sounds like they are on helium
sKeemAn - 5/29/2014, 7:12 AM
I am glag that Willow Smith is not playing Annie. That would have been the most obvious Hollywood fail!!
ForMeToPoopOn - 5/29/2014, 7:21 AM
SERIOUSLY?!

IS THAT HARD TO HAVE A COMIC-ACCURATE COSTUME FOR ONCE?!?!?!

IS IT SO HARD, SINGER?!?!?!



I'M OUTRAGED! OUTRAGED, I TELL YOU!!!
Nomis - 5/29/2014, 7:29 AM
Again? They made an Annie movie back in '82 from the play, and it was crap!



Just switching up the race of Annie and adding a jay-Z song ain't gonna make this any better!
Barchiel - 5/29/2014, 7:31 AM
Why the hell are people talking about Willow Smith? Is it because of Will Smith? You do realize that Robert Downey, Jr.'s dad was a director? How do you think Drew Barrymore got in the business? Is no one complaining about the Affleck brothers? What about our very own "Scarlet Witch"?

If you're going to bitch about nepotism, don't leave anyone out. The bitchassness has to stop.
