'A Million Days To Die in the West' Trailer Remembers That Time Seth MacFarlane Made a Wacky Western

January 30, 2014


Here's the red-band trailer for A Million Ways to Die in the West, writer-director Seth MacFarlane's film about the myriad ways an old west character could die, and the many ways Seth MacFarlane could provide familiarly over-or-under-exaggerated reactions to those. The film stars MacFarlane, Charlize Theron, Giovanni Ribisi, and Liam Neeson, and like the entirety of MacFarlane's catalogue--with the possible exceptions of his big band standards album and indefensible Dads--it seems pretty clear this thing is going to have both detractors calling this lazy and sophomoric, and equally-vocal supporters insisting this produces laughter. But since that war is still being waged on Fox every week, no reason to start another battle now over this effort. The bigger question here is less over whether or not this is funny, more about if this ends up being a successful audition reel for MacFarlane doing reaction shots and having a beautiful love interest in other comedies. Should Adam Sandler be worried?
