It’s a hard knock life for Quvenzhane Wallis. The wunderkind stars in the upcoming adaptation of the classic story of Annie as the famed little orphan girl.
The new clip opens with Foxx as Benjamin Stacks, a modern-day spin on the character of Daddy Warbucks. He is shown as a wealthy New York City man, who flies around the city in a helicopter, stays in an ostentatious home, and is planning a political run.
Wallis as Annie is then introduced to the tune of the classic “Hard Knock Life” in a cramped room with other girls, under the care of an urban Miss Hannigan, played by Diaz.
The trailer also features the original Annie song “You’re Never Fully Dressed Without A Smile,” and includes footage of Annie moving into Stacks’ home, a misunderstanding of Hannigan as a prostitute, and jokes about Wallis’ natural hair.
