New international trailer for Annie

15 April 2014

The sun will come out in February next year.

A brand new international trailer has landed for the 2014 Annie remake, featuring more singing and more dancing.

The new version of the Broadway musical (based on the newspaper cartoon strip) is being produced by Jay-Z and Will Smith, and features original music from both. Jay-Z famously sampled Hard Knock Life on his single of the same name.

Quvenzhané Wallis stars in the title role of the plucky singing orphan, whose famous shock of red hair has been scrapped for this reimagining.

Wallis became the youngest actress ever to be an Oscar nominee in 2012 when she was nominated for her striking work in Beasts Of The Southern Wild. She missed out on an Oscar, but her young career is showing no signs of a hard knock life.

Jamie Foxx plays the politician who adopts her to look good in the polls, only to discover his paternal instincts; Cameron Diaz plays Annie's mean-spirited foster carer.

Will Gluck (Easy A, Friends With Benefits) is directing.

Annie is released in the UK in February 2015.
