After months of seeing snapshots of Jamie Foxx and Quvenzhané Wallis hard at work on the set of Annie, fans can now see the first official trailer of the Broadway musical remake.
In the 2:30 second video released on Wednesday, Wallis (Annie) can be seen alongside Cameron Diaz, who plays the hilarious, yet snippy Miss Hannigan and Foxx who plays billionaire, Daddy Warbucks.
The trailer outlines the emotional, yet upbeat storyline of Little Orphan Annie who agrees to help with Warbucks’ New York Mayoral campaign. “The more we’re seen together, the better it is for my campaign,” Warbucks tells Annie. The orphan replies, “I bet if I moved in with you, you’d become president.”
The reboot, produced by Jay Z and Will Smith delivers a more urban flare to the popular 70’s musical. Fans can expect some of the original songs including “Hard Knock Life” and “Tomorrow,” but with a little more pizazz.
The film is set to premiere Christmas day.
Don’t Worry, Stacey Dash Still Hates Us Black Folks!
Pigs are not flying and hell has not frozen over…
When Damon Dash announced that he was doing a movie called “Honor Up” with Cam’ron and his cousin, conservative Trump-lover extraordinaire Stacey Dash, the internet exploded. The poster alone, with Dash sporting braids and hoop earrings, was enough to torch Stacey’s mentions reminding the actress of her BET-hating, Obama-shading ways.
Captioned, “This is really happening #HonorUp in theaters February #staytuned,” folks really believed Damon. Even ESPN’s Jemele Hill pulled Stacey’s card…
But it seems as though Damon may be out here spreading #FakeNews. Stacey has put her cousin on blast for using their family ties to promote the film.
However, it’s worth noting that Dash didn’t say she wasn’t in the film … just that she doesn’t have a written contract with Damon or Kanye West production company to use her name or image in advertising. Things that make you go, hmmmm.
