When Sony first announced an Annie remake, Willow Smith was set to play the iconic orphan. Fast forward a few years later and Oscar nominee Quvenzhané Wallis snagged the role over the “Whip My Hair” singer. I wonder how that awkward situation was handled in the Smith household given that Willow’s dad, Will, is one of the co-producers along with Jay-Z. Personally, I think Wallis is a much better choice anyway.

Based on the first trailer, the modern retelling of the classic story stays similar to the fun and lighthearted original. Annie is an 11-year-old living in an orphanage run my mean old Miss Hannigan. A wealthy businessman decides to invite her into his home to create a feel-good story for his bid for the mayor’s office. He then bonds with Annie in a way he never thought he would.

The remake, however, does make a few changes. Daddy Warbucks is no longer. Instead, the rich politician is named Will Stacks, played by Jamie Foxx. The musical’s signature track, “Hard Knock Life,” gets an updated remix courtesy of Jay-Z. Rounding out the cast are Rose Byrne, Bobby Cannavale, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and Cameron Diaz who steps into Miss Hannigan’s shoes. Annie hits theaters on Christmas Day. Check out the trailer below.

Not everyone has a happy ending,” says Norman Osborn (Chris Cooper). No truer words have been said. The first official trailer highlights all the adversaries Spider-Man faces in the highly-anticipated sequel. It’s all about the villains. Making sure Peter Parker doesn’t get his happily ever after are Rhino (Paul Giamatti), Electro (Jamie Foxx) and Harry Osborn aka Hobgoblin (Dane DeHaan).

It’s an interesting move to have Spider-Man battle three foes in the film. One of the biggest complaints of the final film in the Sam Raimi trilogy was that Spider-Man had to budget his time battling Sandman, Venom and Franco’s pumpkin bomb throwing bad guy. Who says superheroes can’t multi-task ;)

If you’re wondering if there will be any other villains for Spidey to battle in future installments, pay close attention to the trailer. Doctor Octopus’ mechanical arms and the Vulture’s wings briefly appear. Perhaps it’s a hint. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits theaters May 2, 2014. Check out the trailer below.

On Thursday, July 18, the first footage from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be shown at San Diego Comic Con. If you aren’t able to attend the film’s panel, fear not. The 40-second teaser has found its way online prior to its official unveiling.

The new teaser highlights Jamie Foxx as the menacing Electro/Max Dillon. The veiny and sinister-looking villain is shown attached to a large contraption. No official synopsis has been released for the film yet, but presumably more information about it will be provided at the panel. The highly-anticipated sequel hits theaters on May 2, 2014. Check out the teaser below.

It’s A Hard Knock Life For Cameron Diaz

In: Donovan, Movies

Will Smith and Jay-Z’s Annie remake finally has a Miss Hannigan. Originally, Sandra Bullock was being courted to play the role, but talks fell through. Enter Cameron Diaz to save the day. Deadline.com reports that negotiations finished June 26. Diaz is the latest to play the iconic role which has been played by Carol Burnett in the original film, Kathy Bates in a TV remake and Jane Lynch who’s currently starring in the Broadway musical revival.

The 40-year-old actress joins a star-studded cast which includes Jamie Foxx as Daddy Warbucks Benjamin Stacks (apparently they renamed the character), Jada Pinkett-Smith and Quvenzhane Wallis stepping in to play the titular role. The Will Gluck-directed remake is slated for a Christmas 2014 release.

Do you think Diaz is a good choice to play Miss Hannigan or would Sandra Bullock been a better choice? For that matter, is another Annie film even necessary? Sound off below.

Back in February, Jamie Foxx declared his love for his White House Down co-star on the Jimmy Kimmel Show by incorporating Channing Tatum’s name in a song. The result was “Channing All Over Your Tatum.” So dirty and so good ;)

With their movie just around the corner, the two reunited to film an official music video for the hilarious track. They even enlisted a few famous friends to appear in the clip. Gabourey Sidibe, Olivia Munn, Kimmel and Miley Cyrus get in on the action. The former Hannah Montana star is saved from a vending machine through the power of Tatum’s name. You have to see it to fully grasp what I’m talking about. Check out the amusing clip below. If you like Andy Samberg and his Lonely Island crew, this is up your alley.

When I first saw the title of the film and who was in it, I was expecting something super cheesy or maybe even a comedy, but I was wrong and pleasantly surprised. White House Down is an upcoming action-thriller film directed by Roland Emmerich and starring Channing Tatum, Jamie Foxx and Maggie Gyllenhaal. I think I thought comedy because the first thing that came to mind was Jamie Foxx singing “Channing All Over Your Tatum” a while back on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon…but anyway…

Here’s the premise of the film: “When a paramilitary group led by Stenz (Jason Clarke) take over the White House, Capitol Policeman John Cale (Channing Tatum), a failed applicant to the Secret Service, must rescue the President of the United States James Sawyer (Jamie Foxx). The trailer is pretty epic, which is to be expected when you consider that the director of this movie also directed Independance Day, The Day After Tomorrow, and 2012. In the trailer, they say “Our darkest secrets will become our biggest threats.”

As a side note, another “White House attack” type movie called Olympus Has Fallen comes out this month and that once looks good too. The film comes out this summer, opening in theaters on June 28, 2013. Watch the trailer below!

Last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, in addition to debuting his hilarious Movie: The Movie: 2V trailer, Kimmel had the stars of White House Down on his show, Jamie Foxx and Channing Tatum on the show. Foxx is so fond of his co-star, he decided to share a song he wrote called “Channing All Over Your Tatum.” LOL. Dirty!

As he beings the song, Foxx sings, “I see a pretty lady all across the bar, she smiles at me and gets right in my car and I know… I wanna Channing all over her Tatum.” Kimmel gives himself gives it a shot and sings, “It’s Oscar night and I feel blessed, I got Magic Mike and Django as my special guests, I wanna… Channing all over you Tatum.”

At first Tatum was uncomfortable with his name being used as dirty song lyrics, but then he got into it and got on top of the piano and harnessed his Magic Mike stripper moves while Fox sang away. Watch the funny and sexy video below.

A week after the Sandy Hook shootings in Newtown, Connecticut, two videos from very opposing camps hit the internet. First you have celebrities asking in a PSA, “How many more colleges? How many more classrooms? How many more movie theaters? How many more house of faith? How many more shopping malls? How many more street corners?” Demand A Plan is a grassroots initiative to mobilize Americans to DEMAND a plan to end gun violence from Congress and President Obama. Reese Witherspoon, Beyonce, Michelle Williams, Selena Gomez, John Hamm, Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson and many, many more lend their voices to the PSA.

Coincidentally on the same day, National Rifle Association president Wayne LaPierre, held a live press conference. LaPierre claims the media is to blame for the shootings and not guns. He explains that the entertainment industry makes “the filthiest form of pornography,” citing violent music videos and films Natural Born Killers and American Psycho. He further goes on to say that “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.” His most controversial comment that has celebrities on Twitter in a tizzy is his claim that had armed guards been at Sandy Hook, innocent lives would’ve been spared that day. Check out both vids below.
