    can’t wait

  • Armond White is my master now

    Sorry, Seth. But you’re not Quentin Tarantino, so you can’t make your own Django Unchained…

    • derek

      You are so off base its not even funny.



  • mattinacan

    why would seth put himself in the lead role, he is no actor. seems like a mistake to me.

  • Jan

    Charlize is a beautiful woman but she appears to be wearing a bit too much makeup in the above still…

  • The Flobbit

    This looks very promising. Neil Patrick Harris and Liam Neeson? Count me in!

    • dan

      Yeah, the guy from the Smurfs movies and the guy from Taken 2 in one movie……HOORAY!!!

      • The Flobbit

        I was more thinking the guy from How I Met Your Mother and Schindler’s List. But hey…!

  • scheebles

    MacFarlane’s look and demeanor in this pic reminds me a bit of Jimmy Stewart in The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance. The plot, too, seems to be a satirical bend on that material. Hopefully he can pull it off.

  • pat

    Maybe MacFarlane can do something interesting……….ahhhhhh who the hell am I kidding, this guy’s work is as funny as a small child’s funeral.

    looks good!

  • MJ

    Look how perfect everyone’s faces and clothes look? This looks so fake.

    • scheebles

      I know right! I thought the same thing about the clothes in Blazing Saddles. And then about kung-fu scenes in Shanghai Noon. And the time machine in Back to the Future III.

      Oh wait. No I didn’t. Because they’re all fictional situations set in the west for comedic value. And because I’m not a killjoy. But to each his own.

    Seth. Please stick to animation, the one medium you are actually decent at.

    • The Flobbit

      Dear Tyler, please stick to Latino Review, the one website where such comments are considered funny.

  • João Paulo

    I want the trailer, but the first image is good.

  • DNAsplitter

    I’m excited for this. Seth’s style in Ted was perfect and was one of my favorite comedies from 2012. I also like the cast that he has assembled w NPH and Liam Neeson.

    NPH needs to do more movies. A lot more movies. And real ones, not that Smurfs crap.
