‘Annie’ remake gets debut trailer – watch

Starring Cameron Diaz as a mean ghetto boss, Jamie Foxx as a filthy rich politician and talented child actor Quvenzhane Wallis as the plucky title character, the big-screen remake of classic musical Annie has just got its first trailer.

Featuring lavish parties, helicopter rides and rooftop dance sequences, it’s a decidedly modern spin on the beloved tale; and you can expect slick updates of favourites such as Tomorrow.

As we revealed last year, the new movie is produced by Will Smith and Jay Z, and is directed by Will Gluck (Easy A), from a script by Emma Thompson and Aline Brosh McKenna (The Devil Wears Prada).

Only time will tell as to whether this fresh version – Diaz’s Lana Del Rey look and all – will be a hit with audiences.

Annie is set to hit UK cinemas in February 2015.
