Cameron Diaz is the worst thing to happen to the legacy that is 1982’s Annie, but here we are with her as Miss Hannigan. Luckily, we have the adorably talented Quvenzhané Wallis to even things out a bit, and Jamie Foxx (who can go either way – laughably awful or really talented).
I’m not sure what to make of the new Annie trailer, to be honest. Did this movie need to be remade? Most certainly not, but we’ve got it and we’ll have to learn to live with it. I don’t know how I feel about the modernization of it, but it is great to see a black girl in the lead with a black Daddy Warbucks – little girls especially can use any chance they can get to see themselves reflected in the media, so on that point alone, I kinda have to support it.
What do you think of the trailer? Would you see the Annie remake? It’ll be out on December 19th in the US, if so.
