Butter got a mixed reception during its festival run late last year, but it’s certainly got a good cast, including Jennifer Garner, Ty Burrell, Hugh Jackman, Olivia Wilde and Alicia Silverstone. When her husband is unceremoniously asked to step down after taking first prize for fifteen years as the master Butter Carver at the Iowa State Fair, the limelight-seeking, ultra-competitive Laura Pickler (Garner) takes on a 12-year-old, African-American butter sculpting prodigy in a butter carving contest of epic proportions. Not UK release is currently set.
If a child just turned up on your doorstep, would you keep him, or would you phone child services? While 99.9% of the population would do the latter, Jennifer Garner and Joel Edgerton just decide to keep him, believing he’s the embodiment of a wish they made to have a child. Presumably their right, as this is a Disney movie and not some hard-hitting tale about weird, delusional parents. Now a new trailer for the film has arrived. It’s out in the US in August, but no UK date is set yet.
