Let's Rush To Judgment: 'Butter'
I very much like this trailer for the upcoming film Butter, starring Jennifer Garner, Ty Burrell, Rob Corddry, Alicia Silverstone, Hugh Jackman, and a lot of other people — plus a performance from Olivia Wilde that is, based on what I see here, surprisingly funny for a lady who's often been trapped playing pretty and chilly.
Butter is directed by Jim Field Smith, who directed Jay Baruchel in She's Out Of My League and has also worked on Showtime's Episodes, and written by Jason Micallef, whose first IMDB credit ever appears to be this movie.
Butter, which has kicked around the festival circuit for a year, opens in limited release on October 5.
