Trailer For "Machine Gun Preacher" Arrives...

And it does absolutely nothing to change my mind about how I’ve felt about it all along – especially after seeing the official poster that I posted a few days ago, which, as I already stated, turned me off instantly. But I guess it’s good to Souleymane Sy Savane getting work.

Full synopsis:

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 livesand eventually his own.
