5 Things You Missed While You Were In School (March 6)
Whether you were asked to sing "Tomorrow" a hundred times or your parents forced you to watch the 1982 or 1999 version of the movie Annie when you were a kid, this news will brighten your day. The remake of Annie just released its first official trailer today! Oscar nominee Quvenzhane Wallis stars as orphan Annie, who was adopted by billionaire Benjamin Stacks, played by Jamie Foxx. They are joined by Rose Byrne—as Benjamin's kindhearted assistant Grace—and Cameron Diaz, who'll play the harsh Miss Hannigan. Annie will hit theaters this Christmas.

Almost everyone can't get enough of Disney's blockbuster movie Frozen. Proof? The movie grossed over $1 billion at the box office! According to Seventeen.com, it is the second animated film to do so, following the beloved classic Toy Story 3.

Major girl power moment.
What do Shailene Woodley and Jennifer Lawrence have in common? Not only do they both star in movie adaptations of dystopian trilogies, but they also almost turned down the roles! In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Shailene revealed that she almost turned down playing Tris in Veronica Roth's Divergent, but accepted it when JLaw told her in an e-mail that she should do it. Glad Shailene did because we can't think of another actress who'll play Tris best. And we all know that JLaw almost turned down Hunger Games, too.
