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!
