Seth MacFarlane makes his way in front of the camera for his next big venture, and though the general air of offensiveness doesn’t seem quite up to the level set by Ted, this star-studded comedy still looks to be full of MacFarlane’s… charm.
A Million Ways to Die in the West has more big names than you know what to do with, which is a strong indication that there a lot of MacFarlane fans out there. Much like most of MacFarlane’s work, it looks like the film tries its hand at a wide variety of comedy stylings, some look pretty funny, some are perhaps hoping to milk more than is possible out of screwball situations.
At any rate, the film quickly followed the release of the Redband trailer with one that is safe to show without an age-gate. The differences probably tell you a lot about the final film actually, and you may want to ask yourself if we really need anything that gets cut.
Check both versions out below, and look out for this one in May.
Seth MacFarlane directs, produces, co-writes and plays the role of the cowardly sheep farmer Albert in A Million Ways to Die in the West. After Albert backs out of a gunfight, his fickle girlfriend leaves him for another man. When a mysterious and beautiful woman rides into town, she helps him find his courage and they begin to fall in love. But when her husband, a notorious outlaw, arrives seeking revenge, the farmer must put his newfound courage to the test. Starring alongside MacFarlane are Oscar® winner Charlize Theron, Liam Neeson, Amanda Seyfried, Giovanni Ribisi, Sarah Silverman and Neil Patrick Harris. MacFarlane reunites many of the filmmakers behind Universal and MRC’s hit film Ted including Scott Stuber (Bluegrass Films) and Jason Clark who produce, and Wellesley Wild and Alec Sulkin who co-wrote the script.
