Millennium Entertainment released this week the first official trailer for The Paperboy, the latest movie from Lee Daniels (Precious), in which star Zac Efron apparently strips down to his briefs and dances with co-star Nicole Kidman in the rain.

That’s just some of what you’ll see in the steamy new trailer. Among the other highlights: a tease of a sex scene between Efron and Kidman; an axe fight between Matthew McConaughey and John Cusack; and some type of bizarre, Dreamgirls-esque musical number.

The film — which created quite the stir when it premiered at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, in May, for a scene in which Kidman’s character pees on Efron’s — tells the story of a group of journalists and a death-row groupie who investigate a convicted killer facing death row in 1960s Florida.

It’s also the latest in a series of more adult-driven roles for Efron, who in the last 12 months appears to be moving past his High School Musical days for projects such as this one.

The Paperboy opens in limited release on Oct. 5. Watch the trailer, above.
