Recap: 'Saturday Night Live' – Cameron Diaz And Mark Ronson/Bruno Mars

22 November 2014 8:00 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In Cameron Diaz, “Saturday Night Live” has its second consecutive host making an appearance after a lengthy absence. Although Diaz has hosted the show three times before, this is her first time doing so since 2005. Will there be “Annie” sketches? Probably! Will there be a Jamie Foxx and/or Quvenzhané Wallis cameo? Possibly! Will Bruno Mars make an in-sketch appearance in addition to his musical role tonight? Likely! Will this be an exciting episode or one that puts audiences to sleep faster than Thanksgiving dinner? Who knows! As always, I’ll be liveblogging the show in real time, assigning grades to each segment. As always, I’ll remind you that comedy is subjective and the grades don’t have any more power than you allow them to have. As always, a few of you will ignore that last statement and quibble over a “B-“ versus a “B”. It’s cool. »

Stream the 'Annie' Soundtrack on Spotify Now

19 November 2014 4:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Maybe the sun will come out tomorrow for "Annie" fans after all.

Sia's Auto-Tuned take on "You're Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile" had some of us scratching our heads, but fans of the original musical might feel a little better after listening to the full soundtrack on Spotify.

All of the "Annie" songs received a few nips and tucks, but classics from the Broadway show, including "Maybe," "It's a Hard-Knock Life," and "Tomorrow," hew fairly close to the originals. "I Don't Need Anything But You" with Quvenzhané Wallis, Jamie Foxx, and Rose Byrne is also kind of groovy. Still and all, Cameron Diaz is no Carol Burnett, so you might want to gird yourself for her version of "Little Girls," or her duet with Bobby Cannavale on "Easy Street."

Quvenzhané Wallis knocked our socks off in "Beasts of the Southern Wild," so it's super exciting to see her headline a big Christmas-y family movie. »

See That Red Dress from Annie

13 November 2014 6:35 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The red dress is an iconic part of the original Annie, so director Will Gluck knew he wanted to include it in his adaptation. "We thought long and hard about how to do it," he tells People. "People always remember Annie's red dress, but in our movie, she just wears her regular clothes the whole time." The solution? The distinctive garment became Annie's attire for a formal event at the Guggenheim Museum in the movie, where she sings one of the musical's brand-new songs. Costume designer Renée Ehrlich Kalfus "spent a long time" coming up with the right »

Watch Quvenzhane Wallis sing a new Sia song in 'Annie' clip

12 November 2014 10:39 AM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

This isn't the Annie you know. In a new clip, Quvenzhané Wallis sings an entirely new song written for the film by "Chandelier" singer Sia and Greg Kurstin. The song is perhaps more radio-ready than some of the musical's saccharine hits. (Though "It's The Hard Knock Life" has had its moments. Jay Z, after all, is a producer on the new film.) Wallis' voice sounds sweet on the track, which her character sings at the Guggenheim Museum. Director Will Gluck told People, where the clip premiered, that Annie's asked to give a speech but instead just sings. That sounds »

Watch Quvenzhané Wallis Perform Sia's New Song 'Opportunity' from Annie

12 November 2014 6:15 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

When Will Gluck signed on to direct Annie, he knew he wanted to update the music. So he recruited songwriters Sia and Greg Kurstin to give the classic musical a modern-day feel. "Sia is awesome," Gluck tells People. "I was super lucky that she was interested and she loved Annie as a kid." While the "Chandelier" singer was initially only supposed to write a song or two for the film, Gluck eventually convinced her to come onboard for the whole thing. "She's so fun to work with," he adds. Sia and Kurstin wrote three entirely new songs for the movie, »

Watch: The Final Trailer for 'Annie' Teases a New Rhythm for an Old Classic

4 November 2014 2:20 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Annie, the story of the little orphaned girl with signature red locks, first appeared on the Broadway stage in 1977. The musical was a hit. Audiences were charmed and inspired by the story of the mini ragamuffin and her joy for life under the worst of circumstances. Annie was adapted for the big screen in 1982, opening to mixed reviews — but that didn’t stop it from becoming a childhood favorite. Fast forward to 2014, when the Jay-z and Will Smith-produced version of the film will be arriving in theaters. Quvenzhané Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) takes the title role, changing the Annie template for a whole new generation. And here’s the final trailer for the upcoming movie, released on December 19 (just in time for...

Now that we've all gotten to digest the first couple trailers for Annie, I think we've all warmed to the cast of the remake, which includes 2013 Oscar nominee and breakout star Quvenzhané Wallis as the title orphan, Cameron Diaz as Miss Hannigan, and Jamie Foxx as Benjamin Stacks, aka Daddy Warbucks. The second trailer prominently features the iconic song "It's a Hard Knock Life," and this third and final one showcases "Tomorrow." If that doesn't charm you, the footage might. Wallis looks adorable as Annie, and Foxx is bringing his signature charm. Prepare for your heart to melt when Annie comes out on Christmas Day, and in the meantime, check out all the trailers below.

Watch the Final ‘Annie’ Trailer Starring Jamie Foxx and Quvenzhané Wallis

4 November 2014 12:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Nearly two years after she took Sundance by storm with Beasts of the Southern Wild, Quvenzhané Wallis is back this winter with Annie. The films are pretty different in most respects — one is a scrappy indie drama, the other a big-budget studio musical — but both are about irresistibly plucky young girls, and that’s […]

Latest Annie Trailer Aims For The Heartstrings

4 November 2014 8:42 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

With the release date now just over a month away, here comes what is reportedly the “final” (barring TV spots and other marketing ideas) trailer for the new take on Annie, starring Quvenzhané Wallis, Jamie Foxx and Cameron Diaz. The story, of course, remains largely the same as the original film/musical/comic strip, just with a modern coat of paint and a few tweaks here and there. Annie is living the hard knock life in foster care with the spiteful, thoughtless Miss Hannigan (Diaz). But when Annie accidentally meets Will Stacks (Foxx), her world seems to be changing for the better. Convinced that being seen around the girl will help his poll numbers, Stacks lets her stay in his massive penthouse apartment. Of course, it’s Annie who really has an effect on him as he starts to think he could be a better man. But what will happen »

The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow in New ‘Annie’ Trailer (Video)

4 November 2014 8:41 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

A new trailer for Sony's “Annie” remake teases tears, laughter and, of course, “Tomorrow,” the iconic song that is most associated with the Broadway musical. Quvenzhané Wallis plays the little, optimistic orphan who sings “the sun will come out tomorrow,” while living with mean foster mom Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz). Her sun rises when New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx) saves her from getting hit by a car, and then decides to temporarily adopt her for campaign purposes.

The sun will come out tomorrow, obviously, in new 'Annie' trailer

4 November 2014 7:24 AM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

The latest look at the modern-day adaptation of Annie starring Quvenzhané Wallis, puts Wallis' rendition of "Tomorrow" front and center. So good luck getting that out of your head. Though this new version has a Sia song and emoji, Annie devotees will likely be pleased to find that the trailer also features a hallmark of the original musical: Annie reading her parents' note to the other orphans, or in this case, foster kids. "Please take care of our baby," Annie reads. "Her name's Annie. There's half a locket around her neck so when we come for her you know that she's our girl. »

Bet Your Bottom Dollar on the Final Trailer for the Remake of 'Annie'

4 November 2014 7:17 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Please, take care of our baby. Her name's Annie." That's right, the remake of the classic musical Annie is still a movie that's coming out this winter, in case you forgot with all the excitement for Interstellar hitting theaters this week. Honestly, if you're not already sold on this flick, then you're probably not going to see anything new in the latest trailer to convince you to see it. While it doesn't look terrible, this movie looks painfully sweet, like Jamie Foxx and Quvenzhané Wallis will give you cavities. And since it's a musical, we know it's not going to be as short as most family films. But will it be worth your time? See for yourself. Here's the last trailer for Will Gluck's remake of Annie direct from YouTube: Watch the most recent trailer for Annie from the United Kingdom right here. Annie is directed by Will Gluck »

4 November 2014 6:58 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Will Gluck’s rendition of Annie looks cheesy to the max, but there’s just something about that story and those songs that’s undeniably appealing and packs the power to put a smile on your face regardless of flat humor and tacky dialogue.  Plus, this latest trailer has little to no Cameron Diaz in it and that definitely works to the piece’s benefit. We’ll get to see what Quvenzhané Wallis is capable of post-Beasts of the Southern Wild when Annie hits theaters on December 19th.  The film also stars Jamie Foxx, Rose Byrne, Bobby Cannavale, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and David Zayas.  Hit the jump to check out the new Annie trailer. Here’s the official synopsis for Annie: A Broadway classic that has delighted audiences for generations comes to the big screen with a new, contemporary vision in Columbia Pictures’ comedy, Annie.  Director/Producer/Screenwriter Will Gluck »

The sun will come out December 19, as an all-star cast lines up for Annie. Columbia Pictures has released a final trailer for this updated take on the Broadway musical sash hit, featuring Quvenzhan&#233 Wallis as the iconic orphan and Jamie Foxx as the big daddy who saves her from a life of impoverishment.

Annie follows a young, happy foster kid who's also tough enough to make her own way on the streets of New York in 2014. Originally left by her parents as a baby with the promise that they'd be back for her someday, it's been a hard knock life ever since, with her mean foster mom Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz). But everything's about to change when the hard-nosed tycoon and New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx), advised by his brilliant VP, Grace (Rose Byrne) and his shrewd and scheming campaign advisor, Guy (Bobby Cannavale) - makes a »
