Gerard Butler stole the attention during the premiere of "Machine Gun Preacher" at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival. Making a grand entrance at Roy Thomson Hall on Sunday, September 11, the 41-year-old Scottish actor made funny faces at cameramen and saluted the crowd like a sailor.
For the event, Butler opted to show off his dapper side by donning a navy blue suit and a matching light blue shirt and plaid tie. He was joined on the red carpet by co-star Michelle Monaghan, who looked stunning in a white sheath mini dress and a pair of Brian Atwood's burgundy suede Power Studs pumps.
Another cast member who was on hand at the premiere night was Madeline Carroll. The 15-year-old actress turned heads in her eye-catching sky-high heels that she paired with a blue dress. Her male co-stars, Michael Shannon and Souleymane Sy Savane, also suited up.
In related news, Relativity Media have released two new clips from "Machine Gun Preacher". One titled "Bug You There?" presents a touching scene where Butler calls her on-screen daughter Carroll after a long time not seeing her, while another one called "I Miss Ya" sees Butler meeting Shannon at a bar.
Scheduled for a September 23 limited release in the U.S., this Marc Forster-directed drama tells the true story of Sam Childers, a former gang biker who renounces his outlaw ways and embarks on a spiritual path. He becomes a warrior for the desperate and helpless children in a war-torn country in Africa.
