Gerard Butler stars in Machine Gun Preacher clip

A clip of Machine Gun Preacher has landed online, with Gerard Butler a bit more restrained than in the trailer. This isn't Sparta, it's the Sudan.

The brief snippet shows Sam Childers (Gerard Butler) getting some words of encouragement from his wife Lynn (Michelle Monaghan).

If you've seen the trailer you'll have got the gist of this conversation before, but it's interesting to see the – big word – juxtaposition of Butler's African setting and a US supermarket.

Still, we're hoping the next clip shows a bit more action as Butler's reformed drug dealer takes on African forces trying to conscript child soldiers into their armies.

Machine Gun Preacher opens in UK cinemas on 18 November 2011.
