'The Paperboy' clip: Nicole Kidman's sexpot and John Cusack's inmate size each other up -- EXCLUSIVE

The Paperboy

When The Paperboy premiered at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, director Lee Daniels’ follow-up to Precious created quite a stir, thanks in large part to Nicole Kidman’s performance as tarted-up sexpot Charlotte Bless, who’s eager to get her pen pal boyfriend (John Cusack) sprung from jail for a murder she swears he didn’t commit. She enlists the help of a Florida reporter (Matthew McConaughey) and his associate (David Oyelowo), and entrances the reporter’s younger brother (Zac Efron). But in this exclusive clip from the film – in which everyone meets Cusack’s character for the first time – Charlotte’s attention remains squarely on the man she’s hoping to free. Check it out below: 

The Paperboy arrives in theaters Oct. 5.
