I feel a song coming on.
Sony Pictures have released the trailer for the Annie update, about a wealthy businessman (Jamie Foxx) who rescues a young girl (Quvenzhané Wallis) from an orphanage.
Expect lessons to be learned, obstacles to be overcome and everyone to grow a little from the experience. With singing… oh, so much singing.
This reeks of something to do with the kids over Christmas when all other possibilities are exhausted. Like the Jedward Panto. Or defrosting the freezer.
Spike Lee should consider rebooting The Wiz (1978) with Jennifer Lawrence as Dorothy, Steve Buscemi as the Scarecrow and Jack Black as the Lion.
Annie is released on 19th December.
