Annie movie remake billboards...

Orphan Annie is back on the big screen this Christmas, and this time she's got a whole new look.

The traditionally red-haired little girl has received the Hollywood makeover, with Beasts of the Southern Wild's Oscar-nominated Quvenzhan√© Wallis introducing the musical star to a whole new generation.

Set in modern day New York, this singing and dancing foster kid is living under the cruel care of Cameron Diaz as 'Miss Hannigan', whilst Jamie Foxx's business tycoon mayoral candidate 'Will Stacks', is a contemporary re-imagining of 'Daddy Warbucks' from the original musical comedy-drama.
In the 1982 feature film, which was adapted from the Broadway musical of the same name, Aileen Quinn played the titular 'Annie', with Carol Burnett infamously playing the evil 'Miss Hannigan'. 

All these incarnations were based on the 1924 newspaper cartoon strip, Little Orphan Annie, by Harold Gray, so it'll be interesting to see what the kids of today think of this contemporary retelling.

When this orphan is taken in by the mayoral hopeful to as a PR ploy to improve his ratings, can Annie's sun-will-come-out-tomorrow personality show her faux foster father there's more to life than money and politics? You'll just have to watch and see.

These cheery, and very red, billboards for the new Annie movie were first snapped at Sunset & Vine in Hollywood on October 25, plus later along San Vicente Boulevard, Melrose Avenue, Highland Avenue and Beverly Glen Boulevard through November 23, 2014.

Daily Billboard likes the fun touch of a joyful Annie leaping over and providing the dot over the 'i' of the film title.

This remake of Annie isn't the only big screen musical hitting cinemas this holiday season, as Disney's Into the Woods will open a week later on Christmas Day, so it looks like it will be a sing off for box office supremacy.
