Yes, yes, y’all—the official trailer for the Jay-Z and Will Smith-produced ‘Annie,’ starring Oscar-nominated Quvenzhané Wallis and my boo thang Jamie Foxx is out and I’m totally here for it!
Jamie stars as Will Stacks, the billionaire New York mayoral candidate who, after bumping into Annie on the streets of Harlem, takes her in to up the profile of his campaign, and Quvenzhané, with the most spectacular twist out EVER, is the orphan whose cheery, sunny, optimistic disposition works overtime to win over Mr. Stacks’ icy heart.
Personally, I can’t wait to see this classic tale—a favorite of the girlpies—retold with a little color on it. If the funky hip hop beat running all up and through “Hard-knock Life” is any indication, we’re going to dig it, for real. Set the date: “Annie” hits movie theaters on Christmas Day.
