Universal Pictures has provided us with a batch of new A Million Ways to Die in the West images and clips from director Seth MacFarlane’s upcoming Western comedy. MacFarlane also co-wrote and stars in the pic as a cowardly farmer who backs out of a gunfight and subsequently loses his girlfriend. When he later meets the wife of a notorious outlaw who teaches him how to shoot, he gets an opportunity to win his pride back, but must choose between reclaiming an old love or kindling a new one. Judging by the trailers and clips, fans of Family Guy or MacFarlane’s directorial debut Ted will likely feel right at home with this new feature. I’m personally curious to see how MacFarlane fares as the lead, since the ever-busy multi-hyphenate is making his live-action acting debut as the star of the film as well.
Hit the jump to take a look at the new A Million Ways to Die images and clips. The film also stars Charlize Theron, Amanda Seyfried, Neil Patrick Harris, Giovanni Ribisi, Sarah Silverman, and Liam Neeson. A Million Ways to Die in the West opens May 30th.
