"Machine Gun Preacher" is the inspirational true story of 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.

When ex-biker-gang member Sam Childers (Butler) makes the life-changing decision to go to East Africa to help repair homes destroyed by civil war, he is outraged by the unspeakable horrors faced by the region's vulnerable populace, especially the children. Ignoring the warnings of more experienced aide workers, Sam breaks ground for an orphanage where it's most needed—in the middle of territory controlled by the brutal Lord's Resistance Army (LRA), a renegade militia that forces youngsters to become soldiers before they even reach their teens.

But for Sam, it is not enough to shelter the LRA's intended victims. Determined to save as many as possible, he leads armed missions deep into enemy territory to retrieve kidnapped children, restoring peace to their lives—and eventually his own. The explosive, real-life tale of a man who has rescued over a thousand orphans from starvation, disease and enslavement, "Machine Gun Preacher" also stars Michelle Monaghan ("Due Date"), Kathy Baker ("Cold Mountain"), Madeline Carroll ("Mr. Popper's Penguins"), Academy Award® nominated Michael Shannon ("Revolutionary Road") and Souleymane Sy Savane ("Damages").

LOL als ich den Titel gelesen habe dachte ich erst an einen neuen Grindehouse Film.

Filme mit Butler werden generell geschaut. Ich mach mir hier wenig Sorgen. Den Trailer kann ich mir leider erst später anschauen, bin aber schon gespannt.

Das sieht echt gut aus. Dachte allerdings bei dem Titel auch erst an ein Trash-/B-Action-Feuerwerk. :icon_lol:
