Seth McFarlane hit it big a few years ago when he released his first comedic theatrical film “Ted.” Now he’s hoping to follow up that success with another “R” rated comedy and we have the first red band trailer for you down below.
“A Million Ways to Die in the West” is a comedic film that not only earns its “R” rating for vulgar humor and language, but for it’s violent deaths. As the name implies, the film is about all of the stupid ways people died in the Old West, but it’s also a tale of love and revenge.
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.
The film stars an impressive group of acting and comedic talents which include Charlize Theron, Liam Neeson,
Amanda Seyfried, Giovanni Ribisi, Sarah Silverman and Neil Patrick Harris.
Personally, I’m a bit lukewarm on the trailer. The deaths look fantastically stupid and random, which is guaranteed to get quite a few laughs out of me. However, I just wasn’t loving a lot of the dialog presented in the trailer which basically boiled down to characters saying “Look how crazy and wild this situation is!” Perhaps this is the rare case where they actually kept the best stuff out of the trailer. I thought “Ted” was incredibly funny so, despite my reaction to this trailer, I’m really eager to see this film.
