Over a year ago we got a brief look at the satirical comedy Butter, a film which Alex enjoyed at Telluride, about a young orphan girl who, after being adopted by a Midwestern family, discovers that she has an incredible talent for butter-carving. Young actress Yara Shahidi plays the orphan who finds herself against the ambitious wife (Jennifer Garner) of the retired reigning champion (Ty Burrell) in a town's annual butter-sculpting contest. Hugh Jackman and Olivia Wilde also star in the film, and now the first photos from the film reveal their small town characters looking very rural indeed. See the batch of photos below!
Here are the first photos from Jim Field Smith's comedy Butter via The Playlist:
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. Looking good?
