AnnieColumbia Pictures, a division of Sony, released the first trailer of the modern telling of the story of Annie. The film which is set to be released on December 19, 2014 stars Jamie Foxx, Quvenzhané Wallis as Annie, Rose Byrne, Bobby Cannavale and Cameron Diaz.

In the new version of the film wealthy businessman Benjamin Stacks (Jamie Foxx) comes to the aid of a young girl living in an orphanage run by the tyrannical Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz). The film is based on the popular comic strip, Annie tells the extraordinary story of a little orphan who ends up in the lap of luxury with billionaire Benjamin Stacks, a variation of Oliver “Daddy” Warbucks. Unlike most of the other children at Miss Hannigan’s orphanage, spunky Annie (Quvenzhané Wallis “Beasts of the Southern Wild”) believes that her parents are still alive and will one day return to claim her. So when Mr. Stacks offers to adopt her, she asks the most powerful man in America to help find her real mom and dad instead, and he agrees. Stacks’ whopping reward for Annie’s parents attracts the attention of con artists Rooster, Lily and the wicked Miss Hannigan, who hatch a plot to kidnap Annie and take the reward. The film is based on the Broadway musical stage play “Annie,” book by Thomas Meehan, music by Charles Strouse, lyrics by Martin Charnin, and on the “Little Orphan Annie” comic strip.

Annie will be in theaters on December 19 , 2014. You can view the trailer below:
