Catching up with Joseph Trapanese is like getting a summary experience for a hustling composer. In the past year, he's scored, worked in sound design and arranged for a diverse array of films, including franchises like "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay" and the "Divergent" series; remakes like "Annie"; a sequel like "The Raid 2"; and original scripts like "Nightcrawler." He's dipped into TV like for "Wonder Woman," and nabbed further video game gigs like he did for racing title "The Crew." On top of all that, he's still active in the pop music sphere, having just completed work with repeat customer Kelly Clarkson and collaborating with acts like M83 for live performances. I sat down with Trapanese back in January, after "Raid 2" punched Sundance in the face, and even after only 10 months, it was time we caught up. This week, during our chat, Trapanese exclusively revealed that he's on tap as »

On last night's fall season finale episode of "Dancing With the Stars," Quvenzhané Wallis gave America a sneak peek at what to expect in theaters, from the upcoming remake/reimagining of the Broadway musical "Annie," which she stars in, along with Jamie Foxx, Rose Byrne, Cameron Diaz, Bobby Cannavale, Adewale Akinnuoye Agbaje, Dorian Missick and Tracie Thoms. Wallis and company performed live, to the film's classic "It’s a Hard Knock Life" tune. Watch it all unfold below. The Sony Pictures project is set for a December 19, 2014 release. Filmed in New York »

This new version includes vocals by both Wallis and Sia, and will be included on the accompanying soundtrack out on December 15.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: this new "Annie" movie looks terrible. I don't know because I haven't seen it, but still. Come on. Really. You guys. Speaking of "Annie," Cameron Diaz hosted "SNL" this week, meaning a sketch about America's favorite orphan was all but assured - and while what they turned out wasn't nearly as funny as I would have wanted (check out Michelle Wolf's "Grown Up Annie" for a superior parody), I suspect it's still better than the film it's spoofing. But okay, here we go: Leslie Jones as "Black Annie." She's big, she's brazen, she's 43, and she is still wearing that damn dress. »

Hannigan then tries to convince Stacks that 'black Annie' is the right choice for adoption and begins to list her achievements, including representing herself in court.
When the other orphans try to get in on the act, Annie shouts that the film is "not about you orphan bitches" and proceeds to initiate a song about herself.
Annie will be released on December 19 in the Us and December 20 in the UK.
When a long-time A-lister with proven comedic chops like Cameron Diaz hits Studio 8H to host Saturday Night Live, expectations tend to be high. But would the Annie star’s wacky charm spin her first official hosting stint since 2005 — she’s done numerous guest spots, it must be noted — into comedy gold?
Despite a promising but eventually flat “Schoolhouse Rock”-themed cold open (highlighted by Jay Pharoah’s President Obama repeatedly throwing Kenan Thompson’s “Bill” down the Capital Hill steps) and Diaz’s less-than-stellar audience Q&A as opening monologue (“Is Shrek just as grumpy in real life?”), the »
Cameron Diaz hosted Saturday Night Live this weekend for the fourth time, and the episode allowed her to rap, wear lingerie and channel her Annie character. But was this a hard-knocked episode? Keep reading to find out. After the Schoolhouse Rock! cold open took aim at the immigration bill, the subpar monologue focused on Diaz fielding questions from the audience about Shrek and the fact that she's hot. By the time Tony Danza got name-checked, it was clear this monologue was not the boss. Faring better was a pre-taped sketch in which the show's ladies rapped about being

Cameron Diaz appeared in a very different version of Annie while hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend. In the sketch, the actress portrayed Miss Hannigan, her character in the upcoming film version, as she awaited the arrival of Daddy Warbucks. Read more 'SNL' Recap: Cameron Diaz Episode Weighs in on Bill Cosby Scandal When Warbucks (Jay Pharoah) showed up, he wasn't interested in meeting Annie (Vanessa Bayer). "No, no, no, no, no — I want the black Annie," he said. This meant the introduction of Black Annie (Leslie Jones), a 40-something woman who could palm a pumpkin because, as she

Cameron Diaz opened her “SNL” monologue about how she's been answering a lot of questions doing press for her upcoming movie Annie, adding she was happy to host the show and not have to answer more questions. So, of course, that's when "audience members" began to pop up and ask her all sorts of questions. Check out the video here! »

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. »

Normally, by mid-November, we have a pretty good idea of many of the likely nominees in most of the crafts categories. But in this year's race for Best Sound Mixing, I see things as extremely open — there's not a single film that strikes me as assured of a spot and more than a dozen appear to have very good chances. That makes for an exciting race. This category awards the overall mix of dialogue, music, effects and "everything else" into a film's soundtrack. This is different than sound editing, which recognizes the creation and editing of artificial sound effects. Being a leading Best Picture contender can certainly help a film's chances in mixing (seen in "The Social Network," "The King's Speech" and "Moneyball" in recent years), as can being a war film, a musical or a respected (or even not-so-respected) blockbuster. There are also certain mixers who score very regularly indeed. »

The last time Cameron Diaz hosted Saturday Night Live, in 2005, comedian Bobby Moynihan was years away from joining the famed sketch series. But in a hilarious new teaser clip for the Diaz-hosted November 22nd episode, Moynihan claims he has a history with the actress – in a romantic capacity.
"Bobby was my first kiss," Diaz reads from a cue card suspiciously written in crayon. "We French-kissed and German-kissed, and he even grabbed my butt a little." Moynihan nods excitedly in agreement, even mouthing the words when Diaz reads that they "made »
"Ella, you have more kindness in your little finger than most people possess in their whole body." The time has come for the classic fairytale to get a facelift from the same studio responsible for the most iconic animated take on Cinderella. The full trailer for the new live-action take on this magical coming-of-age romance has arrived, and it's definitely whimsical and rather gorgeous. If you're familiar with the tale of Cinderella, there's nothing drastically different, with the exception of a glimpse into the life the title character had before she was left with her wicked step-mother (Cate Blanchett). It looks all right. Watch! Here's the first full trailer for Kenneth Branagh's Cinderella straight from Disney: And here's the new poster shot by photographer Annie Leibovitz (who's no stranger to Disney): Cinderella is directed by Kenneth Branagh (Thor, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit) and written by Aline Brosh McKenna (Annie, »

The story follows four men with dangerous pasts who all win big in a sports betting pool, although lethal complications arise when it comes time to split up the winnings. Magnus Martens directed the original film, which starred Kyrre Hellum, Henrik Mestad, Marie Blokhus and Mads Ousdal.
Dave Callaham (Godzilla, The Expendables 3) has signed on to write the screenplay, with Will Gluck (Annie) attached to produce through his Olive Bridge company. It isn't known when production may begin.
Patty Jenkins made her directorial debut with the 2004 drama Monster, which earned Charlize Theron an Oscar for Best Actress. She was, at one point, attached to direct Thor: The Dark World for Marvel before parting ways due to creative differences. She has since »
Expected songs on the Annie soundtrack: "Hard Knock Life," "Maybe," "Tomorrow." Unexpected songs on the Annie soundtrack: "Little Girls (2014 Film Version)," a Miss Hannigan redemption song ("Who Am I"), and a duet by Beck and Sia. That last one, called "Moonquake Lake," is an original song from the pair — a mellow track laced with ukulele and childrens' voices. Where it'll fit into the movie? Who knows! Perhaps Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx's Daddy Warbucks) will take Annie on a tropical vacation. Bonus Beck and Sia Bff fun! Here they are doing "You're the One I Want" from Grease: »

Jaden Smith, 16, is almost as well known for his nearly inexplicable tweets as he is for his acting career, while his 14-year-old sister Willow Smith's biggest contribution to the entertainment landscape seems to be the 2010 pop music hit "Whip My Hair."
So, of course, The New York Times Style publication T Magazine felt that this dynamic sibling duo would be just the right people to interview – while overlooking the Pacific Ocean on a chaparral-filled bluff – about all those classic teenage topics such as quantum physics, prana energy and the lucid, often illusive nature of temporal interpretation.
Pics: 12 Actors' Kids Who Went On To Become Stars
Well, actually, it seems that T Magazine wanted to talk to Will and Jada Pinkett Smith's kids about their music and their creative and collaborative processes. The siblings, however, were much more interested in discussing transcendental meditation.

A middle school assembly took an exciting turn when the cast of Annie surprised them with a sing-a-long they'll never forget.
The fifth and sixth grade students of Warren Lane elementary school in Inglewood, Calif. thought that they were just singing the songs of Annie for a typical assembly, but a couple bars into "It's the Hard Knock Life," they were surprised by their celebrity guests.

The new, contemporary version of the fan-favorite stage musical casts Quvenzhane in the title role: a young, happy foster kid who's also tough enough to make her 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 »
