Remember Butter? No not the salty, oily stuff you spread on toast. We're talking about the political satire film that The Weinstein Company picked up back in 2010 following a film festival circuit run. The film was pegged for a spring 2012 release but then got pushed back to October to take advantage of the upcoming elections in the U.S.
So now that we're a few months out, the first trailer has been released. In the film, Jennifer Garner plays a conservative wife to her long-standing butter-carving champion husband played by Modern Family's Ty Burrell. He has to retire so she steps in to the contest only be challenged by a talented young black girl named Destiny (Yara Shahidi), whose adoptive father (Rob Corddry) gets a lot of the laughs in this first look.
The trailer also introduces us to Olivia Wilde's stripper character and Hugh Jackman's comedic cameo. Butter is set to arrive in theaters on October 5. Here's the official synopsis and trailer, courtesy of Yahoo.
Laura Pickler (Jennifer Garner) is the kind of woman who doesn’t accept defeat lightly. That’s why when her husband (Ty Burrell), 15-time winner of the town’s butter carving competition, wants to step down, she takes it upon herself to win the championship title herself. And she’ll do whatever it takes to save her family’s reign in the spotlight, even if it means complete sabotage of her two biggest competitors — a 10-year-old foster child (Yara Shahidi) and husband’s hard-living mistress (Olivia Wilde).
