TIFF’11 Preview: Gerard Butler in fighting form

Lynn Fenske, Toronto Film Examiner

In 2011 Gerard Butler returns to the Toronto International Film Festival with performances as a heroic warrior in two films conveying two distinct battles – one Shakespearean, one biblical.

In Machine Gun Preacher Butler plays true life crusader Sam Childers, a born-again Christian fighting to save orphaned children in Africa’s Sudan region. The TIFF world premiere gala for Machine Gun Preacher is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, September 11 at Roy Thomson Hall.

As Tullus Aufidius in Coriolanus Butler portrays a guerrilla leader and arch enemy of banished hero Caius Martius ‘Coriolanus’ (Ralph Fiennes) faced with the perilous choice of either destroying Coriolanus or joining forces with him for the ultimate battle. Coriolanus has its North American premiere at Toronto’s Elgin Theatre, 6 p.m. on Monday, September 12.

Gerard Butler’s appearance on the red carpet for both premieres has been confirmed. For additional screenings of both films consult the full TIFF schedule. Any individual tickets available for all the screenings are available from the TIFF box office (online, by telephone or in person) September 3.
