Trailer: ‘Annie’ Featuring Quvenzhané Wallis and Jamie Foxx

It’s a hard knock life…

The new Annie remake stars Quvenzhané Wallis as our titular heroine, an orphan who meets and forms a bond with Jamie Foxx’s character – Benjamin Stacks, who’s named Oliver Warbucks in the original Broadway musical.

Cameron Diaz, meanwhile, really chews the scenery as Miss Hannigan in the first official trailer for Annie. The comedy-musical also stars Rose Byrne, Bobby Cannavale, Tracie Thoms, and Dorian Missick. Annie is directed by Will Gluck (Friends with Benefits, The Michael J. Fox Show), who co-wrote the screenplay with Aline Brosh McKenna and Emma Thompson.

Wealthy businessman Benjamin Stacks (Jamie Foxx) comes to the aid of a young girl living in an orphanage run by the tyrannical Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz).

Annie will be released in theaters on December 19, 2014.
