Jamie Foxx Is Daddy Cool In Trailer For Annie

In this Sony Pictures remake of the 1984 classic, ANNIE, Academy Award winning Jamie Foxx stars as William Stacks (based on Daddy Warbucks) alongside Academy Award-nominated Quvenzhane Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) who plays Annie, the adorable orphan, who despite living in an orphanage run by mean-spirited Miss Hannigan, played by Cameron Diaz, manages to warm the hearts of all those she encounters. In this latest trailer, Stacks exposes Annie to a life she’s always dreamed of and in turn Annie’s sheer presence transforms Stacks when suddenly her estranged parents try to re-enter her life.

Foxx and Wallis also appear on the cover of the December 2014 issue of Essence magazine and the Oscar winner heaps praise on his co-star.


“I don’t think we could have done this movie unless Quvenzhané came along,” he tells the mag. “It’s sort of like she’s tailor-made for the role in a sense. I would challenge you to find a girl who personifies ‘Annie’ better than Quvenzhané does.”

Don’t forget to catch this heart-warming modern remake this holiday season when ANNIE hits theaters on December 19!
