Watch the First Trailer for ‘Annie’ Remake: How Is It Different?
The first trailer for the Annie remake starring Quvenzhane Wallis, Cameron Diaz, and Jamie Foxx is here!
This new version of the 1982 classic, which was set in the 1930s, has been updated for the 21st century.
Not only are characters and the plot slightly different — instead of Daddy Warbucks, Jamie’s character is named Benjamin Stacks and he meets Annie when he saves her from being hit by a car (and there’s no Punjab or Rooster!) — but there are hints at the modern world, like Miss Hannigan (Diaz) telling Benjamin to like her on Facebook.
Luckily, the iconic Annie songs remain the same! In the trailer, we get to hear the new versions of “Hard-Knock Life” and “Tomorrow.”
Annie, which was produced by Jay Z and Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, hits theaters on December 14.
