Just a few days ago we brought you the first poster for Machine Gun Preacher and here we are with the official trailer. I’m actually really looking forward to checking this film out. It looks like Gerard Butler has stepped up his game a lot and I hope he continues to make films that look as good as this one. The film looks like it contains a decent enough amount of action, but more importantly a strong story with some emotional backing. Never thought I’d be talking about a movie with Butler in it that contains something called a story!
Head over to Apple to check out the trailer.
Machine Gun Preacher opens in limited theaters on September 23rd, 2011.
In this inspirational true story, Machine Gun Preacher is about Sam Childers, a former drug-dealing criminal who undergoes an astonishing transformation and finds an unexpected calling as the savior of hundreds of kidnapped and orphaned children. Gerard Butler (300) delivers a searing performance as Childers, the impassioned founder of the Angels of East Africa rescue organization in Golden Globe-nominated director Marc Forster’s (Monster’s Ball, Finding Neverland) moving story of violence and redemption.
