Nicole Kidman Pounces Zac Efron in Skeevy 'Paperboy' Trailer (VIDEO)

the paperboy zac efronHave you seen the trailer for the upcoming thriller The Paperboy? It starts out okay -- Nicole Kidman struts out a Southern accent and acts all trashy, clearly angling for another Oscar, bla bla bla ... But then it turns dark and steamy! In a twisted kind of way.

Apparently Nicole Kidman seduces Zac Efron -- like that makes any kind of sense at all. Oh no wait, I get it: He's young and pliable and she manipulates him to help save her convicted murderer husband -- or something like that. All I can say is when you see the closeup of Nicole coming in for a kiss, you may find yourself backing away from your monitor. She is terrifying that close up. I'm just warning you.

But let's get back to the reasons why I think this movie is worth seeing.

1. Zac Efron dancing in his undies in the rain.

2. Zac Efron crawling on the beach.

3. Zac Efron/Nicole Kidman sex scene resembling the mating habits of the praying mantis. (Science lesson!)

4. I forget the rest.

It doesn't look like Matthew McConaughey ever takes off his shirt in this movie, so that's kind of disappointing. But he does get to have an ax fight with a craggy John Cusack! Man, remember that gigantic crush we all had on him back in the 1990s? Or was it just me? I hate how John Cusack has to go and remind me that I'm getting old.

Anyway, I remembered the biggest reason why I think this movie is worth seeing: It's directed by Lee Daniels, who made the movie Precious. As I watch this crazy mess of a trailer unfold, I'm hoping that on the big screen, it all makes sense and that Daniels is working his deep, daring magic here.
