The remake of Annie (Sony Pictures) will be out in theaters on December 19th. The film stars Quvenzhane Wallis, Jamie Foxx, Cameron Diaz and Rose Byrne. If you are interested in seeing the movie early, there’s a screening at Regal Bridgeport on Saturday, December 13th at 10:30 am. To win one of fifteen VIP passes for yourself and a guest, leave a comment telling me if you’ve seen the original Annie movie. The deadline to enter is December 2nd. Note: the name you use below will be the name you have to use to check in with the rep at the screening. BTW, two readers of my Portland blog will also win a prize pack consisting of a t-shirt, fuzzy socks, posters, sticker sheet and Sandy Plush Dog.
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.
