Trailer Review - Annie (2014)

1st Official Trailer
Watch It Here

Person of Interest: Quvenzhané Wallis as Annie, Jaime Foxx as... Will Stacks? (is Daddy Warbucks too subtle and not bland enough?), Cameron Diaz as Ms. Hannigan, Rosa Byrne as Grace Farrell, Bobby Cannavale as Foxx's plot dumping political adviser, cameoing David Zayas, and Sandy.

Scene Pop: Nothing.

Briggs Breakdown: 2 songs, near decapitation by van, Windex to a child's face, and Windows 8 product placement (BOOOO!).

Effective?: No. It looks like commercial garbage; remove the signature Annie songs and it could have been called Imagine That 2.

Check it Out?: No. Nothing stands out beyond the lack of dying Wallis' hair red and the pitiful acting all-around. Of course, it doesn't really matter what I feel about it because there is sure to be a ton of families checking it out come December.
