The trailer for "The Paperboy," which is based on a novel of the same name, was released today. Among other things, this movie features Nicole Kidman pissing on Zac Efron.
Based on a novel by Pete Dexter, The Paperboy is set in late '60s Florida. Efron plays Jack, a young guy who's aimless and living with his dad and soon-to-be step mother. His older brother (Matthew McConaughey) is a journalist who comes to town to investigate a death-row inmate (John Cusack) he believes is wrongly convicted of murder. Meanwhile, Cusack is corresponding with a platinum blonde (Nicole Kidman) with a fabulous wardrobe, fake eye-lashes and pillowy lips. She's also the object of Jack's raging hormones — and things get complicated.
A star-studded cast, plus a movie that appears to take itself very seriously? If next year's
Djangos Oscars weren't so packed with studs, I'd say this would be an early fave.
The film, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in May, is set to be released on October 5th.
