Second 'Annie' trailer, starring Quvenzhané Wallis and Jaime Foxx


It's a hard knock life for my ears.

Despite Cameron Diaz being consistently grating in her "modern" interpretation of Miss Hannigan, this second Annie trailer is more bearable than the first, and actually makes this remake look like a decent flick. The curmudgeon in me will always be annoyed by precocious kids, especially when they're singing, but Quvenzhané Wallis is pretty darn adorable in this, and her dynamic with Foxx's "Daddy" Warbucks feels organic and fun, which adds a lot to the film's charm.

I have never been much of an Annie fan, but I understand why this film has the capacity to do well. And while I do feel like this remake is trying a bit too hard to seem current, I know it can be a big hit with kids and musical theater lovers alike, so I'm not too worried about it. Check out the trailer above and let us know what you think!

Annie opens December 19th
