Will Gluck’s modern update of beloved musical "Annie" starring Quvenzhane Wallis and Jamie Foxx finally has an official trailer.

The "Beasts of the Southern Wild" actress stars as the famed curly-haired sweetheart, who lives with Miss Hannigan, played by a rather alarming Cameron Diaz, and her fellow orphans in Harlem. Foxx appears as Benjamin Stacks ($$$), the film's version of Daddy Warbucks, an uptight billionaire with his eye on the city's mayoral seat. Rose Byrne appears as the good-natured Grace Farrell, while her real-life beau Bobby Cannavale makes an appearance in a newly written role as Stacks' political adviser.

The film arrives in theaters next Christmas.
