Watch: Jennifer Garner, Olivia Wilde and Ty Burrell in 'Butter' Trailer
After hitting the film festival circuit late last year, the new political satire from Jim Field Smith (She's Out of My League) is finally hitting theaters this fall. We've seen plenty of first look images featuring Olivia Wilde, Jennifer Garner, Ty Burrell, Hugh Jackman and more, but now the first trailer has finally arrived. The film follows a young orphan girl (Yara Shahidi) who, after being adopted by a Midwestern family, discovers that she has a talent for butter-carving but finds herself pitted against the ambitious wife (Garner) of the retired reigning champion (Burrell) in a town's annual butter-sculpting contest. Watch it!
Here's the first trailer for Jim Field Smith's comedy Butter originally from Yahoo:
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 October 5th this fall. Looking good?

Rob Corddry is hilarious, Jennifer Garner is beautiful, the film looks funny and the movie got a whole lot hotter when Olivia Wilde came on screen!

it's about time this trailer came out! can't wait! sort of not related, but i could never carve butter. the stench. THE STENCH. also, this reminded me of a line from the interebs: "Butter is slippery, that's why you should eat as much as possible to lubricate your arteries and veins." sounds legitimate.
