Promo for Butter is finally picking up! Today, more stills from the film have been released, including two featuring Hugh Jackman as Boyd Bolton. Remember: the first trailer came out just yesterday. Butter will hit theaters October 5th with a September 7th VOD release.
After a very long wait, the first trailer for Butter has finally been released! The film stars Jennifer Garner as Laura Pickler, a woman entering a butter-carving contest to keep her family’s reign in the town’s annual competition. Ty Burrell, Rob Corddry, Olivia Wilde, Alicia Silverstone, and Kristen Schaal also star. Check out the trailer above (and note Hugh Jackman’s prestigious “and” credit). Butter hits theaters on October 5th, but it’ll be available on Video-On-Demand (VOD) one month earlier on September 7th so you can watch it in the comfort of your home.
Jim Field Smith (She’s Out of My League) directs Butter from Jason A. Micallef’s script that made the 2008 Black List. The film follows Laura (Jennifer Garner), the wife of a former butter sculpting champion Bob (Ty Burrell) who tries to take the mantle from her husband only to be thwarted by a young adopted African American girl (Yara Shahidi), who has discovered that she has a natural talent for making art out of butter. Hugh Jackman, Olivia Wilde, Rob Corddry, Alicia Silverstone, Ashley Greene, and Kristen Schaal also star in the comedy slated for limited release on March 16th, 2012.
At long last, there’s some information about Hugh Jackman’s upcoming movie, Butter. After much silence on the project, today it’s been announced that the film will have its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). A summary of the movie is below:
Jim Field Smith, USA World Premiere
Set in the highly competitive world of championship butter carving, Butter blends social commentary, outrageous comedy and heartfelt drama in telling the story of the ambitious Laura Pickler (Jennifer Garner), the self-anointed First Lady of Butter Carving. Refusing to accept that her husband (Ty Burrell) wants to step down after his 15-year run as the “Iowa State Butter Carving Champion,” and therefore end the Pickler family’s reign in the spotlight, Laura takes a stab at the title herself. But her bid for glory is complicated when two unlikely contestants enter the race – one, her husband’s hard-living mistress (Olivia Wilde), and the other a 10-year-old foster child named Destiny (Yara Shahidi). Enlisting the help of her high school sweetheart, Boyd (Hugh Jackman), Laura will stop at nothing to be crowned champion, even if it means resorting to sabotage. Part political satire, part Capra-esque comedy, Butter is a story about what it means to win at all costs and against all odds.
This year, TIFF will take place September 8th-18th. The event is open to the public and tickets are available at the official website. Although it’s unconfirmed whether or not Hugh Jackman will be at the Butter premiere, there’s a good chance he’ll show up, so fans may want to stop by to check out the gala’s red carpet regardless.
