Gerard Butler's new film - is this for real?

You know how they had all those McBain trailers in The Simpsons? The ones that totally nailed the ridiculousness of mainstream Hollywood genre conventions? It may be possible that Quantum Of Solace director Marc Forster has perhaps not realised that they were intended for rofls - either that or perhaps he thought he'd see if he could help kickstart an Heavily Armed Unassuming Person action sub-genre in the wake of Hobo With A Shotgun.

Either way, this looks... I can't quite put it into words. Curious? Bad? Lame? Potentially hilarious?

Turns out Machine Gun Preacher is actually based on the life of wrong-un-turned-top-bloke Sam Childers, who gave up a life of crime to set up orphanages in Somalia – therefore proving that yes, this film actually is indeed for reals. Thanks for the bad movie buzz-kill, real-life dude.
