It's time to bask in the awfulness of Hollywood yet again with this list of potential nominees for the 2015 Razzies, the award show that rewards being the worst of the worst.
While it might feel like the bro-farce The Interview was the only movie that came out in December 2014, Christmas week also saw the release of another high-profile film made for actual children: the Jay Z/Will Smith-produced remake of Annie, the musical about a gutsy 10-year-old orphan adopted by a billionaire…
"When you have no choice? How do you Choose?"
Given that Cameron Diaz is playing a role popularized by the incomparable Carol Burnett, her performance it "Little Girls" is pretty good. Needs more muted trumpet.
Leading up to her starring role in the Annie remake this December, Quvenzhané Wallis is featured on the cover of The New York Times Style Magazine's holiday issue and based on the interview, she's still a major little boss.
The soundtrack for the Annie remake out later this year is available to purchase and stream and it's predictably full of hope, wonderment and aw-gee. Remember childlike innocence?
It was only a matter of time before Annie got the full-plot-in-a-trailer treatment, and here it is!
How excited are you about the upcoming Annie remake that is about to take over this holiday season? Are you excited enough to watch the original film over and over in anticipation? Or to annoy your partner with repeated playings of the original cast recording so that he's ready and can fully enjoy the film when it…
The poster for the new Annie film was released today and with a head full of red curls, Quvenzhané Wallis looks like the adorable, scene-stealing ham that we all love. You can watch the trailer for the film here.
Well, it was inevitable. The music parodies of the not-t0-be-released-for-another-ten-months film Annie are already trickling in, and so far the film seems to be inspiring comedy greatness.
BEHOLD. Quvenzhané Wallis. Cameron Diaz. Jamie Foxx. Lots and lots of sass and, of course, singing. It is finally upon us—the trailer for the new Annie film is here.
Nicki Minaj took a shower today, it seems, and she wants you to know about it. The rapper (and UNSTOPPABLE BEAST) took some beautiful, slightly nude, makeup-free photos of herself and posted them on Instagram for the world's edification. She looks fucking great.
The Jay-Z and Will Smith-produced film — starring the 10-year-old Beasts Of The Southern Wild actress as Annie, Cameron Diaz as Miss Hannigan, and Jamie Foxx as Daddy Warbucks — has started shooting in Harlem. Apparently the orphanage signed up for Citibike memberships?
No. Not really. But she is in talks to play the role of Grace Farrell, Daddy Warbucks' assistant who first sees Annie at Miss Hannigan's orphanage and brings her home to the Warbucks estate for the holidays. Assuming she can sing, Byrne — who you may know from Bridesmaids, the 2004 box office hit Troy, or TV's Damages
Over the weekend, PBS aired ANNIE: It's a Hard Knock Life, From Script to Stage, a documentary about the classic musical's current Broadway revival. Perhaps you missed it because you (wrongly) thought you had better things to do on a Friday night than stay home and watch an Annie documentary on PBS. If that's the…
Here's some excellent movie news: Quvenzhané Wallis will not sulk off into adolescence with her (fingers crossed!) Oscar like some accolade-hoarding mini-Smaug. According to the AP, she's landed the title role in a new version of Annie and should stick around in pop culture for at least a few more years.
A remake of Annie — updated to modern times, set in Detroit and possibly produced by "Hard-Knock Life"-lover Jay-Z — has been in the works for a while. Last year, Emma Thompson told the BBC she'd been working on the script for three years; we also heard that Willow Smith would star in the flick. But now, Shadow and…
Eleven-year-old Lilla Crawford is definitely fully dressed with that smile. Crawford wants to be Kristin Chenoweth and/or Sutton Foster when she grows up. But for now, she's the new Annie in Annie on Broadway. Sunny, the dog playing Sandy, was rescued from a shelter where she was within two days of being put down. Now…
If you're casting for the role of Sandy in a Broadway revival of Annie, you're looking for scruff, determination, and an insane amount of scrageldy cuteness. Luckily, Sunny was the dog for the job. "At her first performance at the Palace," says trainer Bill Berloni, "Sunny was curious about the applause, but not…
