'Annie' remake first official trailer: Quvenzhané Wallis, Jamie Foxx turn on the charm
Quvenzhané Wallis is back — and viewers get to marvel at the pint-sized powerhouse in the first official trailer for her latest feature film Annie.
The two-minute long trailer shows the 10-year old actress as the modern-day orphan in the remake of the classic musical.
Wallis stars alongside Oscar-winning actor Jamie Foxx, who plays Benjamin Stacks, a wealthy politician who attempts to befriend Annie in hopes that their relationship will make him seem more appealing to voters.
Cameron Diaz plays Ms. Hannigan, the snarky and comical headmistress who runs the foster home where Annie lives. Rose Byrne adds to the famous roster of actors as Grace, the sweet and level-headed assistant to Mr. Stacks.
Wallis is ready to charm audiences as she dances her way into the hearts of movie-goers everywhere, along with the all-star cast.
The upcoming film — which is being produced by Jay Z and Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith — is scheduled to hit theaters on Christmas Day.
