Apparently, everyone and everything that isn’t you in the west will want to kill you in any way possible. Universal Pictures has released the first trailer for Seth MacFarlane’s aptly titled western comedy A Million Ways To Die In The West. In his first live-action acting gig, and his follow-up to 2012’s Ted, MacFarlane is a sheep farmer who falls in love with the beautiful wife of a ruthless outlaw. As you can predict, trouble ensues.
The film also stars Charlize Theron, Liam Neeson, Neil Patrick Harris, Amanda Seyfried, Sarah Silverman, and Giovanni Ribisi. Check out the trailer below.
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 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 reunites MacFarlane with his Ted producers Scott Stuber and Jason Clark, as well as Family Guy collaborators and the film’s co-writers Wellesley Wild and Alec Sulkin. I was expecting to cringe a lot like I did while watching the trailer for Ted for the first time, but this actually looks funny.
Universal will release A Million Ways To Die In The West on May 30th. Are you looking forward to this?
