Trailer For Lee Daniel’s ‘The Paperboy’ With Matthew McConaughey, Zac Efron & Nicole Kidman

Although he is already in production on his drama The Butler, Precious director Lee Daniels made a bit of a stir at Cannes this past spring with his shlocky Southern crime film The Paperboy. While many trashed it, we were more mixed (review here), saying “this bewildering, cinematic beast will find a small, devoted audience in due time” with all all the trappings of a cult classic.”

We’ve now the the first trailer today and unfortunately no Nicole Kidman peeing on Zac Efron scene is included. However, we do get a vibe of Lee Daniels‘ cheesy editing techniques and some pulpy performances from Matthew McConaughey and John Cusack. While it’s still somewhat of a shock this one premiered at Cannes, I could see it being some fun on a cult level. Check out the trailer below via Yahoo.

Synopsis:

A directionless young man helps his reporter brother investigate the possible wrongful conviction of a man on death row, and in the process, falls for the woman whom the convict has been romancing through prison correspondence.

The Paperboy arrives on October 5th.
