Watch the Trailer for the New “Annie”

Annie(PCM) Ever since Jay-Z and Will Smith announced plans to make an Annie remake, the internet has been abuzz with questions, skepticism, and excitement. Now audiences can get their first glimpse at the new film in its recently released trailer, seen below!

In the summer of 2012, the two entrepreneurial stars announced plans to create an Annie remake starring Willow Smith, pop star and Will Smith’s daughter. Due to scheduling conflicts, Willow had to drop the project and now Quvenzhané Wallis will play the iconic lead role sans red afro.

Some people have raised objections to Annie not sporting her characteristic red afro while others object to a modernization of the story, believing that Hollywood is out of original ideas and relies too much on remakes to create box office revenue.

If you ask me, a modernized version of Annie starring Quvenzhané Wallis and produced by Will Smith and Jay-Z sounds like it might be original enough to distinguish itself from the 1982 Annie, which only has a 50% on Rotten Tomatoes anyway, so why not make a remake?

Quvenzhané Wallis is reason enough to see the new Annie; in 2013, the young actress was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role for her role as Hushpuppy in the refreshingly original and touching Beasts of the Southern Wild, making her the youngest person to ever receive a Best Actress Oscar nomination.

Also starring in the new Annie are Cameron Diaz as Miss Hannigan and Jamie Foxx as Benjamin Stacks. Get it, “Benjamin Stacks” like stacks of Benjamins aka hundred dollar bills? Already you can see this remake’s originality shinning through.

Annie will open in theaters nationwide this winter on December 19th. Watch a trailer for the film below and let us know your thoughts in the comments!
