'Machine Gun Preacher' Poster Is Weird

Posted: Updated:

Check out the poster for "Machine Gun Preacher," an upcoming biopic starring Gerard Butler as a drug dealer/gang biker/real live bad person-turned-evangelical Christian named Sam Childers, who upon finding God goes to Sudan to save the Childers. Doesn't Gerard look effective guarding a machine gun in one hand and a doe-eyed boy with the other? By the looks of that tiny swathe of space between the gun and the boy, this is clearly a man who knows what children need. Great job, "Machine Gun Preacher" team! Nothing says "Hope is the greatest weapon of all" like your tagline.
