Machine Gun Preacher

Hope is the great weapon of all. Relativity Media has finally unveiled an official poster on IMDb for Marc Forster's Machine Gun Preacher, starring Gerard Butler as the real-life Sam Childers, a former biker tough guy who finds religion and travels to Sudan where he becomes a local hero, building an orphanage and defending orphaned kids from being killed. We've been hearing about this film for a while, and just saw a first look at Butler a few weeks ago, so maybe we'll get a trailer soon, too. He's got quite a badass stance on this, defending his domain behind him. It looks pretty good, I'm interested. Check out the full poster below!

Machine Gun Preacher is directed by Marc Forster (Stranger Than Fiction, The Kite Runner, Quantum of Solace), who has already moved on to begin shooting World War Z, from a screenplay by Jason Keller. "There is more complexity in a modern-day character who's a drug addict and a biker turned businessman, missionary and soldier. You don't get roles like this very often," Butler said of playing Childers. I hope this role brings him back around to giving good performances in films that aren't cheesy romantic comedies. Relativity Media has MGP set to open limited release starting September 23rd during the film fest season.

    The kid ruins it.
    • That is one of the most unintentionally funny placements of an African child in film poster history.

        LMAO!
  • Guy
    The child does have an interestingly perplexed look on his face. That aside, I am really looking forward to this film.

    I love Gerard Butler but the earlier posters are right, the welfare baby is something Of 80s relic. Where is Bob Geldoff?

    *cough* Speaking of Preachers, any news on Garth Ennis' Preacher tv series/movie? Ohyeah, and that poster looks....well....
  • Yeah, I know the movie's about him protecting people/kids, but did they have to be so blatant? Maybe have the kid peak around his leg and not look like that commercial where the bugs are on their faces like - "Why?..."

    Gerard Butler was welcomed back into his manhood with his performance in Law Abiding Citizen. As far as I'm concerned Alex, he's just continuing his streak.

    Why isn't Gerald Butler playing Snake Plissken? WHYYYYYYYYYYYY?  Now picture this same poster as "Escape From South Africa" and Butler with long hair and an eyepatch.  Anyone??? (Please don't take this seriously.  We all know there is only one Plissken.)
  • tommyturner
