First Looks at ‘Annie’ & ‘All Is By My Side’
Wednesday gave us peeks at two of the most talked about musical movies of 2014. First, Cameron Diaz, Jamie Fox and Quvenzhan√© Wallis sing Broadway classics in modern-day New York in the upcoming remake of “Annie.” Then, OutKast’s Andre 3000 flirts with Imogen Poots in the Jimi Hendrix biopic “All Is By My Side.” We won’t see “Annie” hit theaters until Christmas, but “All Is By My Side” will have it’s big debut at SXSW in a few weeks.
