Red-band trailer for Seth MacFarlane's A Million Ways To Die In The West!

Jan. 30, 2014by: Paul Shirey

Fans of TED and/or Seth MacFarlane get ready to be happy. Shit, even if you're not really a fan, this still looks pretty hilarious.

A MILLION WAYS TO DIE IN THE WEST has dropped a red-band trailer and it's chock full of crude humor and some violent deaths, painting a portrait of what to expect from a western by Seth MacFarlane. Starring MacFarlane, Charlize Theron, Neil Patrick Harris, Liam Neeson, Amanda Seyfried, Sarah Silverman, and Giovanni Ribisi, the film looks to be largely a parody of the genre, a la BLAZING SADDLES, with an equal (if not more so) blend of raunchy humor.

"People die at the fair":

Here's the synopsis:

A cowardly farmer seeks the help of a gunslinger's wife to help him win back the woman who left him.

I wasn't as blown away by TED as many others were, but this looks like a f*cking riot. It's so out of the box to even have a western/comedy on the docket as a big summer release (let alone even made) and it looks like they had a damn blast making this. I'm sure there will be an unsightly amount of on-screen deaths (hence, the title) that will make for some good laughs, not to mention a steady stream of raunch and profanity. If this thing has nudity then it may be the best movie of the summer. It's possible.

A MILLION WAYS TO DIE IN THE WEST rides into theaters on May 30, 2014.

This looks alright, but it doesn't look like anything hilarious or great.

Take it for what it is

This is going to be a completely ridiculous movie.... Just like Family Guy and everything else Seth McFarlane does. They aren't Academy Award winning movies and the humor is childish. That being said, I am there and hoping to laugh my balls off

Maybe it's just a bad trailer but this does NOT look good. I love Seth's TV shows and thought Ted was hilarious. But this is all bad sex jokes and gross out humor. It's almost bad enough that you could change the title to "Western Movie"

I love how "Mila Kunis" is a Native American phrase here.

If only Sara Silverman had played the lead in Prometheus. She would've pointed out the stupidity in every scene.

Looks funny. I liked Ted and am glad to see Seth making more movies. I enjoy his brand of humor. The trailer made me laugh throughout (besides the cliched Native American part; weren't we done with Native American cliches?). The cast looks great too.

The death at the beginning really reminded me of the bit with the cathedral piece falling on the reporter from Hot Fuzz. Reserving judgement for now, looks like it could be pretty annoying but there was a good amount of stuff in that trailer that was funny. And Liam Neeson!

Will Seth Macfarlane ever go away?

And by go away I mean die. I don't get why people get on their knees and suckle his balls out of worship because they think he's so witty. That Family Guy humor is so boring. "Oooooh a collection of bits with a drab story line. I wonder if it will be as clever as his last collection of bits with a drab story line. Ooooh that bit was funny. Ooooh that bit is funny too. What's this about again? Nevermind, that was a funny bit just then. Did I mention I have ADD?" South Park hit that nail on the

Your sense of humor doesn't go away with age, but you are more likely to develop higher standards.
Also Seth Macfarlane is SUCH a great leading man. Seriously, could he get off on the smell of his own shit anymore than he already does? Seriously?!

Nope, people like him so he's staying. But then, no one is forcing you to watch anything he does. So, you know, there you go.

Meh.

Looks pretty tedious. But to be fair I'm not a big fan of the comedy genre. I think comedy is just so hard to do well, that there's probably only about a dozen of them that I bother watching.

I think another problem is that the craft of editing has gone into the toilet in recent years, they seem to want to put everything in the film, and this is a problem especially with comedies which should never be more than an hour and a half long. After that, the joke just gets old.

But yeah,

But yeah, dick and vagina jokes appeal to the middle high schooler in all of us, but I don't think anyone has done it better than Beavis and Butthead thusfar.

Strange...

... The scene with Sarah Silverman and Giovanni Ribisi appears to have been shot separately then digitally combined because she is staring at nothing when looking at him.

After reading someones comments below about how you lose your sense of humor when you get older I'm afraid that after watching this trailer I am starting to end up that way. Dick jokes just have not been funny since I turned 10 years old the word vagina lost its hilarity once I turned 13. Maybe 10 years ago I would have been able to sit through movies like Bad Grandpa but man I had to turn that shit off after 15 minutes. This movie looks to be on the same level, a rental at best.

I don't think you got the joke. In context, the word vagina wasn't meant to be hilarious. It was the sentence that was meant to be funny, and the following response. But the moment you heard "vagina" you shut off. What this means is that whether or not you know it, you've reached that age where raunchy humor is too raunchy for you. It won't be long before your saying "why does there have to be so many curse words in movies now? Back in my day..."

I don't know what's more surprising. How bad this looked to me or the praise it's gotten on here.

I'll be honest w/ you all. I'm 39 years old. Wife. Kids. House. blah blah blah.

You people really thinking this is funny are CONSIDERABLY younger, aren't you?

It's not uncommon for people to lose their sense of humor as they get older. I remember my grandfather telling how Mel Brooks' crude humor wasn't funny when I watched Space Balls. Or my dad thinking Dumb & Dumber was one of the worst comedies he had ever seen.

I'm 31 by the way. I personally think MacFarlane is one of the most consistently funny comedians working today.

I'm 30 and I have to agree. I think Family Guy simply tries too hard and have never really been a fan. I'm sure there will be a few funny parts in this movie but honestly, this looks like a rental at best.

To whoever suggested I lost my sense of humor, not true. I love all KINDS of comedy. Hell, I liked Ted. Really liked it. But this? Just didn't do it for me. LCD type dirty humor.

Or you know, and this might sound crazy, maybe comedy like most things in this world is subjective to ones own personal tastes and you just happen to not like this brand... Or maybe you just don't have a sense of humor. You too Mr. Kurtz.

Ugh.

Who decided that saying the word vagina is instantly funny? No one, because it isn't. It's lazy writing aimed at the lowest common denominator. Also, why make this a period piece when Seth is clearly playing his "character" in a contemporary way? Blazing Saddles didn't need to do that. I'll save my money and miss out on all the dick and fart jokes too.

You're reading my response too literally, the point was no one says saying vagina is funny but if the word is used in the context of a joke or situation in the right way it can be funny. Dismissing the use of the word vagina as a punchline altogether makes me question your understanding of comedy. Any word or combination of words can be used as a punchline. Just because you don't find something funny doesn't mean others feel the same, it's all subjective like everything else [link]

I'm not convinced

Although I enjoyed Ted and continue to enjoy Family Guy and American Dad, Seth's approach of pretty much making a live-action Family Guy episode isn't a very good idea to me.

I mean, this IS Seth MacFarlane we're talking about, but I was wondering how he'd play the West particularly with all those pedigreed actors. Answer: HILARIOUSLY.
