‘The Paperboy’ Trailer Almost Makes Us Forget About That ‘Golden’ Scene

Nicole Kidman in The Paperboy trailerYou may know of The Paperboy because of its golden moment, its shower of chatter, its… you get the idea. We’re talking about the now-infamous scene made famous by the film’s Cannes Film Festival premiere, in which Nicole Kidman pees on Zac Efron. Well, there’s an actual movie to the attached to that scene and it looks pretty interesting (if you can get past that colorful image). 

But for the purposes of the film’s trailer, which dropped Wednesday, the minds behind the film are trying to direct us as far away from that memory as possible. After all, there is an entire plot that doesn’t revolve around Kidman fixing up Efron’s jellyfish sting with a little old fashioned remedy. 

The film, which comes from Lee Daniels (Precious) and debuted at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, stars Kidman as a woman trying to save a man on death row (John Cusack) with the help of two reporters — or paperboys, if you will — played by Efron and Matthew McConaughey. As you can see from the trailer, circumstances are sure to get messy. No, we’re not talking about that scene again….

The Paperboy hits theaters October 5, 2012.

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
