Trailer for ‘Machine Gun Preacher’, Most Literal Movie Title Ever?

gunpreacherGerard Butler stars in Machine Gun Preacher – the story of Sam Childers, a former drug-dealing biker tough guy who found God and became a crusader for hundreds of Sudanese children who’ve been forced to become soldiers.  This is the trailer, the movie also stars Michelle Monaghan and Michael Shannon and was directed by Marc Forster (Quantum of Solace, Finding Neverland).

I can’t say the trailer did a good job getting me excited for this flick; it looks like a more heartfelt version of Hobo with a Shotgun.  The tagline on the poster also says “hope if the greatest weapon of all”.  Well if that were true, why is Butler holding a massive gun and blowing up people in the movie?  I’d say badassery is the greatest hope but the studio didn’t ask me.

The movie is set to be released on September 23rd. Check out the trailer below:
