Butter Movie Trailer

Butter Trailer: Jennifer Garner Is a Butter Perfectionist

In the trailer for Butter, Jennifer Garner tackles the high-stakes world of competitive butter sculpting as Laura Pickler, an intense woman whose career in butter carving is just a front for her political ambitions. Laura's plan gets a few wrenches thrown into it when she discovers her picture-perfect husband and fellow carver (Ty Burrell) is cheating on her with a stripper (Olivia Wilde) and she has to face a new competitor in the form of a young butter-whittling prodigy, played by little Yara Shahidi.

Butter carving (or really any type of perishable-item sculpting) isn't a hobby I'm familiar with, but it seems like the movie is more of a character study than a feature on margarine expositions anyway. Jennifer Garner has played the anxious domestic goddess before (see Juno), but here she's got a little more of an edge. Rob Corddry is also one of my favorite comic actors and he had me laughing out loud in the trailer, despite the fact that his character is probably the most "normal" guy in the movie. Butter opens on Sept. 4, but you can check out the trailer after the jump.
