'Machine Gun Preacher'

There's no predicting the career of director Marc Forster. He's done gritty drama ("Monster's Ball") and James Bond spectacle ("Quantum of Solace") and even Will Ferrell absurdity ("Stranger Than Fiction"), so who knows what to expect from "Machine Gun Preacher"? It stars Gerard Butler (right) and is based on the true story of an American drug dealer who tried to turn his life around and became a crusader for Sudanese child soldiers. (It should be noted that Forster is following this up with a huge zombie movie titled "World War Z.")
