If and when you see ‘Annie,’ you’ll notice the fake movie within the movie called ‘Moonquake Lake,’ starring Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis, and Rihanna. The trailer for that film wasn’t helmed by ‘Annie’ director Will Gluck, though—it was put together by hilarious geniuses Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the filmmaking duo behind the ‘Jump Street’ films and ‘The LEGO Movie.’ Not only does this trailer perfectly parody ‘Twilight’ and similar angsty, supernatural romance films for young adults, but it comes with its own theme song from Beck and Sia.

When you meet Bobby Cannavale in person, he’s very friendly, but you quickly get the sense that he doesn’t put up with nonsense. Not that Cannavale doesn’t have a sense of humor—he uses this humor to great effect in the upcoming ‘Annie’ remake; playing a political strategist named Guy who is in charge of William Stacks’ (Jamie Foxx) New York City mayoral campaign; spoiler alert: they meet a little girl named Annie (Quvenzhané Wallis)—it’s more that he doesn’t really like to do the things that actors have to do when they are not acting … like putting up with someone like me while I ask him questions. (For the record: He is correct.)

It‘s common for ‘SNL’ to recruit guest hosts from whoever has something new to promote, but it‘s rare for that guest host to participate in a sketch that tears apart the very thing they showed up to help sell. And yet, that's what happened when Cameron Diaz hosted, playing her character in the upcoming remake of ‘Annie’ in a sketch that's all about how genuinely weird the film looks.

While the latest 'Annie' trailer -- highlighting moments from the upcoming movie remake of the classic Broadway play -- expectedly has a lot of singing and dancing, it's more about the comedy this time around, which is full of your classic Broadway musical-style cheesiness cheekiness. Even Jamie Foxx's Daddy Warbucks knockoff spinoff Will Stacks can make a crack at The Dark Knight (a joke which you'll see brought up again).
