On the one hand, Gerard Butler is wielding an impressive piece of weaponry. On the other, a small child appears to be desperate for help.
Set for a fall release, Relativity has released the first poster for their upcoming action biopic, Machine Gun Preacher. Directed by Marc Forster, the film tells the true story of Sam Childers, a former drug-dealing biker who finds God and becomes an activist on behalf of Sudanese child soldiers. The film also stars Michelle Monaghan and was written by Jason Keller.
Relativity took over the U.S. distribution of Machine Gun Preacher in June from Lionsgate, who will still release the movie internationally. The film will get a limited theatrical release in New York and L.A. on Sept. 23 before a larger rollout.
