Around this time last year, "Butter," directed by Jim Field Smith from a Black List-approved screenplay by Jason Micallef, debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival to generally warm reviews. The film, which takes place in the highly specific world of professional butter carving (not that cliché again) and stars Jennifer Garner and Hugh Jackman, is finally slated to begin its theatrical rollout very soon. In anticipation of said release, a brand new clip has hit the Internet, courtesy of the exclamation-point-heavy Entertainment Tonight site. And it features Hugh Jackman being goofy and Southern. So, of course, we love it.

Butter Jackman

Around this time last year, "Butter," directed by Jim Field Smith from a Black List-approved screenplay by Jason Micallef, debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival to generally warm reviews. The film, which takes place in the highly specific world of professional butter carving (not that cliché again) and stars Jennifer Garner and Hugh Jackman, is finally slated to begin its theatrical rollout very soon. In anticipation of said release, a brand new clip has hit the Internet, courtesy of the exclamation-point-heavy Entertainment Tonight site. And it features Hugh Jackman being goofy and Southern. So, of course, we love it.

The scene showcases Jackman's character, who is passing himself off as some kind of butter-carving rogue. The main thrust of the movie pits a young, preternaturally talented butter-carving orphan (Yara Shahidi) against the reigning champion (Ty Burrell form "Modern Family"). Garner, whose performance is supposed to be wickedly wonderful, plays Burrell's wife, who in this scene seems to have hired the Jackman character to say that he cheated on behalf of Shahidi. Jackman reads a script written by Garner in front of Shahidi's adopted parents (Rob Corddry and Alicia Silverstone) and the butter competition judges. It's a cute little scene and both Jackman and Garner are absolutely terrific.

While the movie still could suffer from an excessive amount of indie movie cuteness, we still think this could be a slice above the rest.

"Butter," which also stars Olivia Wilde, Ashley Green and Kristin Schaal, opens on October 5th courtesy of the very busy Weinstein Company
