Dear Movie Gods,

Would you mind sending a copy of Machine Gun Preacher to Seattle? We have waiting for a year for this movie to come out. But where is it? Not in Washington State! If you want this film to make some money, send it to Seattle! We love movies as much as L.A. and NY. Plus, it's time for the rainy season and everyone here heads for the movie theaters. Please give us some entertainment. We are begging for Machine Gun Preacher........Please god! No more Lion King!
