Check out the trailer for "The Paperboy" starring Matthew McConaughey, Zac Efron, Nicole Kidman and John Cusack. The flick is based in Miami but is all Philly at heart, with directring duties in the hands of West Philly-born and bred Lee Daniels, based on a book by former Daily News columnist Pete Dexter.

The movie is about a reporter (McConaughey) and his brother (Efron) who try to exonerate a death row inmate (Cusack), with the help of the alleged murder's fiancee (Kidman).

The movie premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, where reviews weren't stellar, with several noting a surreal scene in which Kidman pees -- yes, pees -- on Efron.

Oh, and you can see Efron in his undies at 1:36. You're welcome, ladies.

"The Paperboy" hits theaters Oct. 5.
