Exclusive ‘Butter’ Trailer: Bad girl Olivia Wilde takes on Palin-esque Jennifer Garner
In a film about -- of all things -- the competitive pageantry of butter sculpture in a small Iowa town, the two leading ladies couldn't be more opposite.
Jennifer Garner plays the Sarah Palin-esque, Type-A Laura Pickler who is bent on butter sculpture domination. And Olivia Wilde is her arch enemy: a stripper with an axe and a pole to grind.

Brooke has bewitched Laura's husband, butter sculpting champion Bob Pickler, played by Ty Burrell. "Tokyo Rose, I think I love you," he says while she dances erotically in front of him at the club.
It's further revealed in the trailer -- seen here first on Yahoo! Movies -- that Brooke and Laura have an argument about the affair. Yes, Laura knows!

The main point is Brooke is mad and she wants to take Laura down. When her own butter sculpture efforts prove underwhelming with her rather weak rendition of "The Scarlet Letter" -- the 1995 film, not the classic novel -- she starts rooting for a new young talent to play out revenge on her behalf.
