Anchor Bay Entertainment and RADiUS-TWC announced today the Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD release of the hilarious political satire comedy Butter, from director Jim Field Smith (She's Out of My League). Written by newcomer Jason A. Micallef, Butter features a stellar ensemble cast that includes Golden Globe Award winner Jennifer Garner (The Odd Life of Timothy Green), Emmy Award winner Ty Burrell (ABC's Modern Family), Olivia Wilde (Tron: Legacy), Emmy Award winner Rob Corddry (Comedy Central's The Daily Show), Ashley Greene (the Twilight franchise), Alicia Silverstone (Clueless), and Hugh Jackman (the X-Men franchise). A story about unlikely rivals who will do whatever it takes to beat the competition in this quirky and outrageous comedy about love, sex, winning, and most of all, butter, Butter heads to retail on December 4, 2012 for an SRP of $29.99 for the Blu-ray Combo Pack and $24.98 for the DVD.
Much in the same vein as films like Christopher Guest's Best In Show and Alexander Payne's Election, Butter also stars Yara Shahidi (Imagine That), Kristen Schaal (Comedy Central's The Daily Show), and Phyllis Smith (NBC's The Office).
In Iowa, butter carving is as cut-throat as a Presidential election, plagued with scandal, greed, blackmail, and sex - except with butter! When long-reigning champion butter sculptor,Bob Pickler (Ty Burrell), is forced to step down, his zealous wife, Laura (Jennifer Garner), enters the competition herself to fight for their status as butter royalty. A win seems virtually guaranteed for the poised and studied candidate when a formidable contender emerges: the fresh-faced, effortlessly charismatic 10-year-old, Destiny (Yara Shahidi), an African-American foster child of local couple, Jill and Ethan (Alicia Silverstone and Rob Corddry). Suddenly, it's anybody's game and Laura will do anything to win - even if it means resorting to sabotage and seducing her foolish ex-boyfriend, Boyd (Hugh Jackman), as a co-conspirator.
