Some sultry images from The Paperboy with Kidman, McConaughey, Cusack, and Efron

Apr. 23, 2012by: Paul Shirey

A batch of stills from Lee Daniels' (PRECIOUS) new film THE PAPERBOY have surfaced today, featuring Matthew McConaughey, Nicole Kidman, John Cusack, Zac Efron, Scott Glenn, and David Oyelowo in the murder/mystery flick. 

Based on the novel of the same name by Pete Dexter, the synopsis goes like this:

The sun was rising over Moat County, Florida, when Sheriff Thurmond Call was found on the highway, gutted like an alligator.  A local redneck (Cusack) was tried, sentenced, and set to fry.

Then Ward James (McConaughey), hotshot investigative reporter for the Miami Times, returns to his rural hometown with a death row femme fatale (Kidman) who promises him the story of the decade.  She's armed with explosive evidence, aiming to free—and meet—her convicted "fiancÚ."

With Ward's disillusioned younger brother Jack (Efron) as their driver, they barrel down Florida's back roads and seamy places in search of The Story, racing flat out into a shocking head-on collision between character and fate as truth takes a back seat to headline news...

I enjoyed PRECIOUS much more than I thought I would and I look forward to seeing what Daniels does with this.  Also, I know some of you will call her old and busted or something of the like, but I am a Nicole Kidman fan.  She is the epitome of sultry older chick and I am a slave to her charms.  She's the Stifler's mom to my Finchf*cker.  I'd say this one is on my radar after these stills and I'm sure a trailer will be forthcoming to further fuel our interests.  Not that John Cusack's whacked-out psycho get up doesn't do that already.

THE PAPERBOY will be premiering at Cannes this year with a release date soon to follow.

Extra Tidbit: Someone...anyone...please, caption that last image.

I'm never clever enough to caption, but I like how Efron is the only one with the WTF look on his face

She was the love interest in Batman Forever, therefor she slept with Batman. As simple as this.

"I bet I can give you and these guys seated next to me boners! No? How about now? Ok, how about...noooww...ooh, you like that?"

btw this movie looks interesting and just curious when its supposed to take place because I see a conferderate flag and next a black guy in a car with white people? And they don't mind?

I believe it's set in the 70s. As for the Confederate flag, you go to Florida today and there's a good chance you'll see a Confederate flag or two, especially in rural areas.

QUEEEEEEEF!!! Ah, thats better!

Also you seem to have dbl'd up on one of your picks. The movie looks interesting. Can't recall the name but McConaughey has another effed up looking roll coming up. Looks like he's gotten tired of the "idiot with rock hard abs" rolls in movies???

Tidbit- "Alright guys, listen for the echo."

This looks great. Probably not a big hit but I love these kinds of movies.

Seems like they've tried to make everyone look as ugly as possible in this one. Nicole Kidman is hit or miss for me, I find her voice annoying. I hope she pulls it off in this pictue though, cause from those stills, she looks kind of laughable.

The movie looks and sounds great, but all the pictures seem very odd for some reason.

Cusack has the redneck look down pat.

Cusack, Paperboy: "I want my two dollars!"

Yeah this looks different, could be worth a look.

I thought Daniels did a terrible job directing the overrated "Precious"! However, the premise and cast have me intrigued. Very torn!
