Machine Gun Preacher stars Gerard Butler and Michelle Monaghan, among others, and half of the movie was shot in Detroit. The film is based on the real life story of Sam Childers (played by Butler), an ex-con who decides to reform his life and help children in Africa. He divides his time between there and his family in Pennsylvania, and ends up building a church and orphanage for the children, as well as hoping to fight the LRA, a resistance army that has been massacring large amounts of people in Africa.
