There’s singin’ and dancin’ and sweepin’ in the Annie remake – with Quvenzhané Wallis ( Beasts Of The Southern Wild ) belting out ‘It’s A Hard Knock Life’ to Jamie Foxx and Cameron Diaz. No sound of Jay-Z’s remixed score yet though.
Channing Tatum, Zoe Saldana and Diego Luna all voice skeletons in the Del Toro produced animation The Book Of Life . Set around the Mexican Day Of The Dead (and feeling quite a lot like the old Lucasarts game Grim Fandango ), it looks utterly gorgeous.
Finally, Jeremy Renner stars in Michael Cuesta’s ( Homeland , Dexter ) drug trafficking thriller, Kill The Messanger – the true story of a journalist who lifts the lid on a CIA cover-up in Nicaragua.
