Jon Favreau's "Chef" premiered at this year's South by Southwest Film Festival, but general audiences can see what the erstwhile "Iron Man" director has cooked up for his return to indie films starting on May 9. Open Road will release "Chef" on that date, and the studio revealed the film's first trailer on Monday afternoon.

"I'm most proud of the fact that it shows there's a recipe for success if you dial into the shit that is going to make your life better," Favreau told HuffPost Entertainment about "Chef" during an interview in Austin, Texas. "It's counterintuitive, but if you take time away from your career and invest it in your personal life, your career flourishes. That's a lesson I've learned a decade ago. That was the real underlying message of the movie."
