First trailer for Annie, starring Quvenzhané Wallis and Jamie Foxx

The sun will come out this Christmas

When I had first heard about the upcoming Annie remake, Jay Z was producing the score and it was being set up as a vehicle for Willow Smith. Now that it has evolved into a starring role for Quvenzhané Wallis and Jamie Foxx (as Benjamin Stacks), I'm not really sure how to react. The music sounds about right (as the songs are directly translated with a mix of new age flair), Wallis is precocious, and the story has a changed a little bit. But watching Cameron Diaz fail to ham it up really bugs me. It's enough to turn me off the whole thing completely. 

Since my mom's the big expert on Annie (the Carol Burnett version is in her Top 3 altogether), I showed her this trailer. Here's what she thought: 

[laughs] I need to see it. It looks fun. But why do they have to mess with my movie? 

There we go. Annie hits theaters Christmas Day.
