"I think that you’ll find it very provocative. It’s definitely an unexpected choice after Precious. The reviews have been mixed. They’re the same as Precious, but I’m not here to please you as I did with Precious. With Paperboy, there’s some big stars in it [including Zac Efron, Matthew McConaughey and Nicole Kidman] and they were surprised that I got them to do what I got Mo'Nique and Gabby [Gabourey Sidibe] to do. But I think die hard Lee Daniels fans will love the film and those who can’t stomach the truth will be appalled and call it disgusting."

Those were words from director Lee Daniels, posted on this site 2 weeks ago, talking about his latest polarizing work, The Paperboywhich premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in May, and was later picked up by Millennium Entertainment for release in USA theaters on October 5.

I'm actually looking forward to checking it out myself, if only to see what all the hoopla is about, and I will early next week. Of course my thoughts will follow.

The Paperboy follows a reporter who returns to his Florida hometown to investigate a case involving a death row inmate. Its starring cast includes Matthew McConaugheyZac Efron, Nicole Kidman, John Cusack and David Oyelowo.

A brand new clip has surfaced, and it's embedded below, courtesy of Vulture:

    I haven't seen the clip or the movie for Paperboy yet, but I've decided to register myself in the appalled and disgusted column.
