The sun will come out on Christmas Day 2014 as the big budget Annie remake dances into nationwide theaters. Beasts of the Southern Wild star Quvenzhane Wallis stars as the titular character in the modern remake also starring Jamie Foxx, Rose Byrne and Cameron Diaz.
The just released trailer below reveals the updated story is set in New York City where a Harlem orphan (Wallis) is recruited by a mayoral candidate (Foxx) to help make him look good in a political campaign. Like the original, the evil Miss Hannigan (Diaz) is out to make sure Annie doesn’t live the good life.
