The Southern crime drama is also starring Matthew McConaughey as Efron's brother and John Cusack as Kidman's lover.
The first trailer of Lee Daniels' "The Paperboy" has been released via Yahoo. The trailer is packed with jumbled plots from start to finish, leading questions on how it would turn out for Zac Efron's character and whether John Cusack's character is a victim or villain.
Based on Pete Dexter's critically acclaimed novel, "The Paperboy" is the enthralling story of two brothers (Matthew McConaughey and Efron) investigating a case involving a death row inmate (Cusack). Convinced by a mysterious woman (Nicole Kidman) that the inmate is innocent, the brothers embark on a journey that is filled with betrayal.
The film was premiered at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year, receiving both positive and negative reviews. It includes controversial scene of Kidman peeing on Efron and masturbating in prison. Pic will play in limited theaters starting October 5.
