A pre-screening of The Paperboy, starring Zac Efron and Nicole Kidman will take place at Landmark E Street Cinema next Monday (press only, not open to the public). When FishbowlDC got wind that there’s a scene in which Kidman’s character urinates on Efron, we got our names on the press list right away.
Paperboy tells the story of a reporter who returns to his hometown in Florida to investigate the case of a death-row inmate, according to IMDb. Though the movie is rated R for violence, language and “strong sexual content,” the pee scene in particular isn’t sexual and doesn’t include a bowel movement. (We understand this may mean WaPo‘s Gene Weingarten will have to seriously reconsidering his decision to see the film.) Lee Daniels, who directed the movie, told GQ the scene deals with a jellyfish sting.
“The Paperboy takes audiences deep into the backwaters of steamy 1960s South Florida, as investigative reporter Ward Jansen (Matthew McConaughey) and his partner Yardley Acheman (David Oyelowo) chase a sensational, career-making story,” states a release for the film. “With the help of Ward’s younger brother Jack (Efron) and sultry death-row groupie Charlotte Bless (Kidman), the pair tries to prove violent swamp-dweller Hillary Van Wetter (John Cusack) was framed for the murder of a corrupt local sheriff.”
The movie officially releases in Washington on Oct. 5.
