The film “Butter” will be shown as part of the South Dakota Film Festival, about a week before its national release.
The picture, which stars Jennifer Garner, will be screened Sept. 29 at the festival, which is based at the Capitol Theatre in Aberdeen. “Butter” is an R-rated comedy directed by Jim Field Smith.
“The Weinstein Co. contacted the South Dakota Film Festival and asked if we’d be willing to show this new film by Jennifer Garner,” according to the South Dakota Film Festival website. “We reviewed it and believed it was quirky enough to present to the SDFF crowd. The cast alone is worth the look.”
In addition to Garner, the film stars Ty Burrell, Olivia Wilde, Rob Corddry, Ashley Greene, Alicia Silverstone and Hugh Jackman. “Butter,” which opens nationally Oct. 5, will be the last film shown at the Capitol on Sept. 29. The film, set in an Iowa town, focuses on a girl who has a knack for butter carving. She enters the town’s annual contest.
