Seth MacFarlane has crafted his empire on crude humor and often hilarious observations of our civilized society, and his newest film - A Million Ways to Die in the West - offers more hilarious observations on a less than civilized society.
Macfarlane takes us to the Old West with A Million Ways to Die in the West, and he is joined by a huge cast featuring Neil Patrick Harris, Charlize Theron, Sarah Silverman, Liam Neeson, Giovanni Ribisi, and Amanda Seyfried. The first redband trailer is below… and be warned, it’s NSFW… or the easily offended:
After a cowardly sheep farmer (MacFarlane) backs out of a gunfight, his fickle girlfriend leaves him for another man. When a mysterious and beautiful woman (Theron) rides into town, she helps him find his courage and they begin to fall in love. When her husband, a notorious outlaw, arrives seeking revenge, the farmer must put his newfound courage to the test.
Seth MacFarlane leads the ensemble cast, and it will be interesting to see his performance in person as opposed to relying on his zany voices. The ‘Comedy Western’ genre is not an easy sell for most modern audiences, but judging by the trailer we are in for a hilarious, raunchy, accidental death-filled romp through the wild west.
