Plot: "Convicted murderer Hillary Van Wetter (John Cusack) is adopted as a cause by seductive death row groupie, Charlotte Bless (Nicole Kidman). Bless enlists the help of Ward James (Matthew McConaughey)and Yardley Acheman (David Oyelowo), two investigative reporters who become convinced that they have a Pulitzer Prize winning story on their hands. But wires become crossed when Ward's wayward brother (Zac Efron) gets involved, corners are cut and the case to prove Van Wetter's innocence becomes dangerously compromised."
The film can boast an impressive cast and the plot sounds interesting. Let's this obvious potential will be confirmed. Impatient to see the trailer.

Hard to recognize John Cusack: he looks so ugly like this! For sure a jury would condemn him even if he was innocent... Zac Efron and Matthew McConaughey, like two angels of justice, are even more handsome than usual. :)
