The Paperboy Trailer

"I know what you came for, got what you want." Millennium Films has debuted the first trailer via Yahoo for Lee Daniels' new film The Paperboy, which received quite a bit of buzz (both negative and positive) premiering in Cannes this summer. Daniels' follow-up from Precious is actually a deep South crime story, starring Zac Efron, Nicole Kidman, Matthew McConaughey, David Oyelowo and John Cusack as the alleged criminal. Yes, this is the very same film with Nicole Kidman peeing on Efron and masturbating in prison, plus Cusack being a crazy weirdo, but you only get to see a bit of that. Have fun with the rest of it!

Here's the first official trailer for Lee Daniels' The Paperboy, originally from Yahoo:

Lee Daniels (Precious) directs The Paperboy adapted from Peter Dexter's novel of the same name which follows Ward James (Matthew McConaughey), a Miami Times reporter who returns to his hometown to investigate the murder of a local sheriff who is eventually helped by his younger brother Jack (Zac Efron) as they investigate the possible wrongful conviction of a man on death row. Throughout the process Jack falls for the woman (Nicole Kidman) whom the convict (John Cusack) has also been romancing through prison correspondence. The Paperboy first premiered in Cannes and plays limited theaters starting October 5th.
