    You Look Like Your Picture: New Clip From 'The Paperboy' With Nicole Kidman & John Cusack

    It’s probably fair to say that when Lee Daniels premiered his followup to “Precious” at Cannes earlier this year, it was one that certainly got critics and audiences talking. "The Paperboy," starring Nicole Kidman, John Cusack, Matthew McConaughey, David Oyelowo and Zac E...

    Watch: Nicole Kidman Goes White Trash In Swampy, Sweaty Trailer For 'The Paperboy'

    Well, if anything, Lee Daniels' much-talked-about "The Paperboy" will at least be interesting. Boasting more accents than the cafeteria at the United Nations, a scenery chewing performance by a thoroughly de-glammed Nicole Kidman and enough sweat to fill a sauna, the first trailer for the film is he...

    Watch: See Zac Efron Dance in His Tighty Whities in Trailer for Lee Daniels' Divisive 'The Paperboy'

    Lee Daniels' 'The Paperboy' Will Land On Theater Doorsteps On October 5th

    Critics were not kind to Lee Daniels' "The Paperboy" when it premiered at the Cannes Film Festival last month. Reviews were vicious, and we called it "a lurid, florid, humid, flaccid and insipid waste of time and money for the audience and for everyone who made it." While the...

    Discuss: Are You Racist If You Don't Like 'The Paperboy'?

    To say filmmaker Lee Daniels' "The Paperboy" is the most controversial film at Cannes is a massive understatement. A pulpy, tart and sordid-sounding Southern potboiler that features moments like Nicole Kidman's character urinating on Zac Efron to cure a jellyfish wound (among other apparent follies)...

    Cannes Review: Lee Daniels' 'The Paperboy' With Matthew McConaughey & Nicole Kidman Is A Disastrous Flop

    Many people will tell you that "The Paperboy" -- based on Pete Dexter's novel, brought to the screen by "Precious" director Lee Daniels -- is a trash masterpiece, an instant camp classic, so bad it's good. These people, these critics, are simply not to be trusted about any question of judgment for a...

    Watch: Lee Daniels Is Playing With iMovie Transitions Again In New Clip From 'The Paperboy'

    Remember Lee Daniels juxataposing a rape scene with the carving of a turkey in "Precious"? Yeah, subtlety isn't exactly the director's strong point, showy, sub-film-student directorial flourishes having tarnished his previous film, and the helmer is at it again with the uneccessary iMovie transition...
