Entertainment Tonight has a great piece on the upcoming satire Butter. I know “Entertainment Tonight” and “great piece” usually don’t go together, but ET doesn’t talk over this segment at all. It’s just behind-the-scenes footage and the actors talking about the movie and their characters. It’s simple, it works, and it makes me even more eager to see this movie, which is about a butter-carving competition that satirizes the 2008 Democratic Presidential Primary battle between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
The piece features cast members Jennifer Garner, Hugh Jackman, Olivia Wilde, Ty Burrell, Alicia Silverstone, and Ashley Greene. The film has been described as Election meets Best in Show, and Jackman compares it to Little Miss Sunshine, To Die For, and Fargo. Hit the jump to check out the piece. Butter is due out next year and it’s one of my most-anticipated flicks of 2011.
