Disclaimer: I was invited to attend the New York Press Junket for Sony’s new untold story of Annie! Be sure to follow along as I share my adventures!
I am so excited to announce that I was invited to attend Sony’s Annie movie press junket in New York this December! This movie features Cameron Diaz, Jamie Foxx, and more really talented stars listed below! When I heard that there was a new Annie movie coming out, I was so excited. I grew up watching Annie on VHS and rehearsing and singing my own versions of all of their songs. Annie did live a “hard knock life” but for some reason I admired her and I wanted to be just like her! I wasn’t the only one that admired and loved her, everyone did! Her and her cute little dog, Sandy!
I always get a little nervous when there is going to be remake of a classic movie, but Sony has their own twist and definite changes to the story, so that instead of judging “which movie is better” they are hoping their audience embraces the beauty of the story from each movie.
I haven’t screened the movie yet, but I will be screening in next month along with interviewing some of the stars like: Jamie Foxx, Quvenzhané Wallis, Will Gluck, Cameron Diaz and Bobby Cannavale!
I would LOVE for you to follow along and tweet with me at @EnzasBargains and @JustEnza using the hashtag #AnnieMovie!
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 teams with producers James Lassiter, Jada Pinkett Smith & Will Smith, Caleeb Pinkett, and Shawn “JAY Z” Carter, Laurence “Jay” Brown, and Tyran “Ty Ty” Smith with a modern telling that captures the magic of the classic characters and original show that won seven Tony Awards. Celia Costas and Alicia Emmrich serve as Executive Producers. The screenplay is by Will Gluck and Aline Brosh McKenna, based on the musical stage play “Annie,” book by Thomas Meehan, music by Charles Strouse, lyrics by Martin Charnin, and on “Little Orphan Annie,” © and ® Tribune Content Agency, LLC.
Academy Award® nominee Quvenzhané Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) stars as Annie, 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 (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 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.
