The first red band trailer has dropped for A Million Ways to Die in the West, the new comedy starring and directed by Seth MacFarlane (Ted). MacFarlane has gathered quite a cast for his new film, with Charlize Theron, Liam Neeson, Amanda Seyfried and more appearing in what looks like a pretty funny film. MacFarlane plays…pretty much himself, in a cowboy outfit. The plot revolves around a cowardly farmer who seeks the help of a gunslinger’s wife to help him win back the woman who left him. It’s all quite silly, but the over-the-top stylings from the creator of Family Guy have proven to translate well onto the big screen. Can this replicate the kind of success MacFarlane saw with Ted?
