Annie is 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 foster mom Miss Hannigan. But everything's about to change when the hard-nosed tycoon and New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks - advised by his brilliant VP, Grace and his shrewd and scheming campaign advisor, Guy - makes a thinly-veiled campaign move and takes her in. Stacks believes he's her guardian angel, but Annie's self-assured nature and bright, sun-will-come-out-tomorrow outlook on life just might mean it's the other way around. Written by

The film was originally envisioned by Will Smith in 2011 as a star vehicle for his daughter Willow Smith with Jay Z playing Will Stacks. However, the film lingered in development, and by the time production was ready in 2013, Willow had aged too much to play Annie. Quvenzhané Wallis, just off her tremendous success with Beasts of the Southern Wild (2012), was chosen to replace Willow for Annie while Jamie Foxx was chosen to replace Jay Z as Will Stacks.

When Annie and Will are riding in the helicopter, they are talking to each other without wearing headphones which is often an impossibility in helicopters. However, in many "Executive" interior fitted helicopters, like the Bell 429 in the film, the noise level is greatly reduced to the point were individuals can talk, watch movies and listen to music very comfortably without the use of headphones.

I thought it was a great movie. I grew up watching the old Annie and I loved this one just as much. The original Annie made you feel happy for Annie and Mr Warbuck but this Annie made you feel good about yourself and your family. I thought the new songs were catchy and enjoyable. The only bad thing I can see was that Cameron Diaz's acting was a bit over exaggerated but besides that, it was great. I had no problem at all with the actors being black, in fact, I didn't even think about it until I came on here and read the disgusting comments. All the people that grew up with the old Annie and are hating on this one need to stop because this is an updated version on the story that was made for the next generation. Just think of the poor little girls in the movie reading your disgusting comments.
