After Relativity took over distribution from Lionsgate, we got word that Marc Forster‘s upcoming drama Machine Gun Preacher is set to debut at the Toronto Film Festival this fall and now the first poster has arrived. Starring Gerard Butler, there has even been some Oscar rumors for his performance. Butler stars alongside Michelle Monaghan, Souleymane Sy Savane, Kathy Baker and Michael Shannon, in the “fact-based” film that follows Sam Childers, “a reformed badass who established an orphanage in war-torn Sudan and then supervised a militia to protect the kids who were being kidnapped to become child soldiers.” Check out the first poster via IMDb.
Machine Gun Preacher hits theaters September 23rd, 2011.
After the actioners Blitz and Killer Elite, Jason Statham is gearing up for his third release of the fall, the crime drama Safe. From Boaz Yakin, the director of Uptown Girls and Remember the Titans, the film follows “a former elite operative who must protect an adolescent girl (Catherine Chan) from the bad guys.” Sounds more like action that crime, but we’ll go with what IMDb says. Check out the first teaser below via IGN for the film also starring Chris Sarandon, Robert John Burke, Reggie Lee, Danny Hoch and James Hong.
Safe hits theaters October 28th, 2011.
