In this inspirational true story, Machine Gun Preacher is about Sam Childers, a former drug-dealing criminal who undergoes an astonishing transformation and finds an unexpected calling as the savior of hundreds of kidnapped and orphaned children. Gerard Butler (300) delivers a searing performance as Childers, the impassioned founder of the Angels of East Africa rescue organization in Golden Globe-nominated director Marc Forster's (Monster's Ball, Finding Neverland) moving story of violence and redemption.

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 lives-and eventually his own. The explosive, real-life tale of a man who has rescued over a thousand orphans from starvation, disease and enslavement, Machine Gun Preacher also stars Michelle Monaghan (Due Date), Kathy Baker (Cold Mountain), Madeline Carroll (Mr. Popper's Penguins), Academy Award nominated Michael Shannon (Revolutionary Road) and Souleymane Sy Savane (Damages).

Machine Gun Preacher was released September 23rd, 2011.

                            Winning these prizes would be a way of carrying the message of the film "Machine Gun Preacher" with me, always. I admire the courage and the choice that Sam Childers had to change his life so intensily, and seize the path of fighting for a goal in which he believed in: the use of the Christian message to rescue desperate people. The film and the book show us the true story, and the soundtrack lifts our sensibility to achieve higher and greater feelings.

                                  A year of free movies would be a wonderful win, when so many of us do not have that extra money for fun stuff.

                                    I would like to win this because I love true stories, especially when the individual is unique like Sam Childer. I also enjoy comparing the literary work to the film.

                                        I've been able to catch parts of the movie from his appearances of shows and articles I've read on the web. I would love to win some of his memorabilia to go w my collection of movies n magazines. He's an amazing actor and any one will be lucky to win! Good luck all :-)!
