A solid film that unfortunately didn’t win over most critics (but fared substantially better with audiences), Machine Gun Preacher is coming your way on June 5th. Though the full list of bonuses isn’t available, it promises and commentary track, and depending on who delivers, that may turn out as interesting as the feature itself. Mark your calendars.
