First Look At Olivia Wilde As A Stripper In 'Butter' With Jennifer Garner & Hugh Jackman

Right before “Butter” premiered at the Telluride Film Festival this past September, The Weinstein Company had ambitions that the film might become a dark horse Oscar contender, exciting the left-leaning Academy with its sharp digs at a Michele Bachmann/Sarah Palin-like character played by Jennifer Garner. Well, it’s November, and "Butter" wasn't quite an across the board hit at Telluride and Bachmann is now a non-factor in the Presidential race.

Olivia Wilde Butter

Right before “Butter” premiered at the Telluride Film Festival this past September, The Weinstein Company had ambitions that the film might become a dark horse Oscar contender, exciting the left-leaning Academy with its sharp digs at a Michele Bachmann/Sarah Palin-like character played by Jennifer Garner. Well, it’s November, and "Butter" wasn't quite an across the board hit at Telluride and Bachmann is now a non-factor in the Presidential race.

If it had been a Telluride sensation, the film surely would have gotten a 2011 release, but as things stand, it's now slated for release on March 16, 2012. But to get your feet wet, a handful of new images have arrived, with new images appearing online giving us a new look at Olivia Wilde as stripper/prostitute Brooke and Hugh Jackman in his small role as the car salesman/adulturer Boyd Bolton. Also starring Yara Shahidi, Rob Corddry, Alicia Silverstone and recent Emmy winner Ty Burrell, the film centers on Laura (Garner), the wife of a former butter sculpting champion Bob (Burrell) who tries to take the mantle from her husband only to be thwarted by a young adopted African American girl (Shahidi), who has discovered that she has a natural talent for making art out of butter. 

We presume a trailer will be on the way soon, but in the meantime, enjoy the pics.
