Quvenzhané Wallis had one of the most remarkable screen debuts in recent memory with 2012’s Beasts of the Southern Wild. And the 10-year-old parlayed that acclaim into landing the iconic role of Little Orphan Annie in a modern day reimagining of the musical, co-starring Jamie Foxx as Benjamin Stacks (aka Daddy Warbucks), Rose Byrne as his right-hand woman, and Cameron Diaz as Miss Hannigan.
Unfortunately, this newly released trailer for the movie musical fails to clear the low bar many had set for it, no matter how wonderful or adorable Wallis is.
