Gerard Butler Joins 'Them That Follow' Cast at Sundance Film Festival 2019 Premiere

Gerard Butler hits the step and repeat at the premiere of Them That Follow held at Eccles Center Theatre during the 2019 Sundance Film Festival on Sunday (January 27) in Park City, Utah.

The 49-year-old actor serves as a producer on the thriller.

Also in attendance were the film’s stars Kaitlyn Dever, Thomas Mann, Alice Englert, Jim Gaffigan, Lewis Pullman, and Walton Goggins, as well as co-writers/directors Dan Madison Savage and Britt Poulton.

Them That Follow is “set deep in the wilds of Appalachia, where believers handle death-dealing snakes to prove themselves before God, Them That Follow tells the story of a pastor’s daughter who holds a secret that threatens to tear her community apart.”

    It is good to see that he is not only looking handsome and pulled together but that he is starting to be seen again at events that he was shy from for awhile. So if he took the time off to recoup and get himself seen in good pr then it was to his advantage. Keep it going Gerry we have missed this part of you.

    he is the producer so he had to go

    OMG okay I watched the Vanishing. GB was everything YR said and more. I take whatever I said before back. GB is in my top five best actors list. Talk about transformation! I forgot it was him. He was amazing! I’m really inspired.

  • AJ

    Hes so cute. Thanks Sonia!

  • AJ

    Well said Wondering! ITAWY!

    Cleo, he is doing good pr and being seen at events that he needs to be seen at. I don’t care if he is a producer and that is why he is there. He is networking and this is what he needs to do.

    You know I wonder if he will stay trim when it comes time to start filming DOT2. I really don’t think he will need to pack on the pounds maybe just bulk up a little. He looked so tiny next to those muscle bound guys. Sonia noticed it too.

    Even though he has been ramming around and traveling he looks energized. So good to see.

    I hope he doesn’t have to go through that process again but I think that look goes with the character. Maybe he can use body padding instead?
    Lol yeah he did. He probably hasn’t been pumping weights lately. He’s been on the go a lot and probably no time to go to the gym.

  • Yeah Right

    Agree Wondering! Good post.

  • Yeah Right

    He deserves an award for his performance in The Vanishing. You are right when you said you forget it’s Gerard Butler. That is what good acting is all about. Gerry was just plain amazing!

  • Wondering

    The Collider says the movie TTF is a must see at Sundance. Out of their top five.

  • AJ

    So true! :):)

  • Sunkist

    You scared me with the “fighting”. LOL! They are just playing tug-of-war with the Christmas toy. Notice the little one’s tail is wagging, and Shushka is smiling. If she were being nasty, she would have taken the toy away, but she just holds it for the little one to try her best. How wonderful! Sharing!
    I can only imagine Gerard feels as close to Maria and the tribe as he does to his own mother, if not moreso. I could never leave my children, human or otherwise, with anyone else longer than one or two nights. He trusts them enough, or is not so attached to Shushka, that he leaves his only “child” with them for weeks and months on end, and then picks her up when it is convenient for him, and then takes her back to them after only a few days as he scampers off again. Thankfully for him, he would not have to put up with my hysterics over it. Morgan must feel, like with Remy, they are one big family, just split up into different houses. It is an interesting concept. “Shared” responsibility, or slacked responsibility?. Community children. Community pets. Community spouses??? It is a new world.
    I got a new baby last night. A preemie. Anyone tried to raise her that way, would take their life in their hands, from me. I’m funny that way.

  • Nox

    I totally agree with you. When I was watching it…I was “where has THIS actor been??” I wasn’t a big fan of the story but he made that movie.

  • Nox

    I felt the same way in Den of Thieves when he was in his truck after seeing his daughter. I wonder if it is the director that brings out his fantastic acting skills or the story? So many movies he has fallen so flat…

  • AJ

    I thought the story was okay but I agree in that I thought they could have raised the bar a notch higher with the story. Especially with GB’s role/character.

  • AJ

    Sorry for jumping in here but me too. I loved that scene! I also thought he was great at the beginning when his wife is pummeling him and then the scene in the grocery store, that expression on his face, priceless. I think it’s the role/character.

  • Sonia

    Big congratulations to my pal @bradley_gallo and @gerardbutler for their work producing THEM THAT FOLLOW. The film premiered at Sundance to a sold out, fired up audience. More glory ahead.

    The Wrap gave it a good review too. The idea of Colman and Goggins in one movie sure sounds good to me.
