8 Posters for A MILLION WAYS TO DIE IN THE WEST Starring Seth MacFarlane, Charlize Theron, and Liam Neeson

     January 29, 2014


Universal has released eight posters for Seth MacFarlane‘s upcoming western-comedy, A Million Ways to Die in the West.  The story revolves around a cowardly farmer (MacFarlane) 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.  The plot thickens when the outlaw returns to claim his woman.  We have yet to see a trailer for the film, but these posters give us a slight indication of each character’s personality, and each seems to be a play on a western archetype.  Hopefully, we’ll get a trailer soon so we’ll have a better idea of what MacFarlane is going for.

Hit the jump to check out the posters.  The film also stars Charlize Theron, Amanda Seyfried, Neil Patrick Harris, Giovanni Ribisi, Sarah Silverman, and Liam NeesonA Million Ways to Die in the West opens May 30th.

Via Seth MacFarlane.

Here’s the official synopsis for A Million Ways to Die in the West:

After a cowardly sheep farmer backs out of a gunfight, his fickle girlfriend leaves him for another man.  When a mysterious and beautiful woman rides into town, she helps him find his courage and they begin to fall in love.  But when her husband, a notorious outlaw, arrives seeking revenge, the farmer must put his newfound courage to the test.

    I was skeptical first about Seth MacFarlane doing a western. But these posters raise the expectation.

    Charlize Theron is so hot!!!

    • sense11

      i met her 2 years ago, I almost passed out over her hotness, she literally towers over other women

      Enjoy it while it lasts, she’s probably gonna be on the receiving end of a fistful of Penn in the next few years.

    “Hung like an Outlaw”, now that’s a bingo!

  • Chillin

    So, i see you still think this is a “western” :)

  • Zack Snyder

    “Westward Ho” Can’t stop laughing.

    i think it’s a mistake to have Seth in the leading role. Voice acting is far different from actual acting.

  • Professor Frink

    Is the Neeson poster a nod to Hollywood Babble-On?

    • scurvy

      Probably. Ralph Carman is supposed to have a role in the film.

  • jay

    Im excited to see this, i hope this is really funny. i do agree with mattinacan about being skeptical of Macfarlane in a lead role. i think maybe he and Ribisi should have switched roles.

    I fucked her for an hour but was disappointed and instead of giving her $73, I give her black eye. So, stop lying! She not making any money.

    • Sweet Pea

      You hit women? Thats cool man.

      • Werefon

        Zero Sense of Humor = No Brain!

      • Sweet Pea

        Not being able to think of something more witty than giving a woman you paid for sex a black eye = lack of wit, bad & boring sense of humour.

      • Werefon

        You see, I didn’t pay her, just gave her a black eye.

      • Sweet Pea

        You remind me of a strip club…

      • Werefon

        You remind me of a hooker that I gave a black eye)

      • DoobieDave

        You are so racist…. Take a break from Fox News before you start talking about strip clubs. Sorry that Mitt Romney lost but get over it, it is 2014 already.

      • Sweet Pea

        Thats a quote direct from DMX himself though, check out ‘Where The Hood At’, you can play find the lyric… Educate yourself. I’m not American either lol, so your presidential elections or right-wing news outlets have no bearing on my opinion forming. Get over yourself yankee, America isn’t the centre of the world. Gosh.

      • DoobieDave

        Just because you aren’t from America doesn’t mean you aren’t a right wing hillbilly.

      • Sweet Pea

        Again, the term hillbilly is a colloquial term to AMERICA. Lol, if you want to make clever quips, educate yourself and broaden those horizons a little, champ. Also again, my original comment you jumped on in a bizarre uneducated attempt at being clever, was a quote from DMX; classic racist right-wing listening I suppose. Haha, yanks…

      • DoobieDave

        Oh REALLY?! Gee, I thought it was used all over the world. The Star Spangled Banner is the national anthem for the whole world too right? I’ll bet you wish you were American so you could hang out with George Bush and John McCain and hate gays and minorities. You still haven’t found your way out of Tony Blair’s asshole.

      • DoobieDave

        Also, I love how you tell me to educate myself by listening to DMX.

      • Sweet Pea

        Now who’s being subtly racist? Why couldn’t you learn from DMX?? Every man has a story to tell and lessons to teach, no matter his background. You have lost this battle my friend, and made yourself look confused and stupid whilst trying very hard to seem witty and clever. Also, why do you keep linking everything back to political figures? I’m honestly not big on politics in general; left or right wing, just FYI, in case you make another sorry attempt at a comeback DoobieDave. Lol, you’re funniest when you try not to be.

      • DoobieDave

        Keep trying to deny your true nature, but the fact remains you just wish you could come over here and join the KKK and that is really sad. By trying to accuse me of being confused and stupid just shows how confused and stupid you really are. I am sorry my friend, but you have definitely lost this battle.

      • Sweet Pea

        Zzzzz… You’re just waffling now, not even responding to anything. Leave it there, you’re not even entertaining anymore. That’s a shame, you were for a bit. Peace out DoobieDave.

      • DoobieDave

        Yeah it’s called trolling you dumb fuck. I wasn’t actually responding to anything in the first place.

      • Sweet Pea

        Ooooo calm down dear, lol no need to get angry there Dr. Banner… You were responding directly to my comments initially, then you lost and starting waffling, or trolling if you prefer – badly too. Ouch.

      • Werefon

        KKK called and ask for Extra Bags. Tell your husband to make some. Use the lube, it’s good for you.

      • Werefon

        I did not hit her, it’s not true! It’s bullshit! I did not hit her! I.Did. NAWWT!

    Can’t wait for this movie. And Sarah Silverman looks pretty hot in that poster.


    ‘Hung like an Outlaw’. In Neeson’s case, art imitates life.

  • Jonathan Michaels

    I always like it when they treat a comedy like a big deal, multiple posters and stuff like that, I hope we get a trailer soon, surprised we didn’t get one with Ride Along, that’s a big hit for Universal, would have gotten a lot of eyeballs

  • sense11

    Of course I’m going to watch it, i had a laughgasm while watching TED

  • Cog

    Sarah Silverman…Thats some bottom of the barrel stuff.

    • evinrude

      Can you tell me where you get your barrels? ‘Cause I have to know.

      • Cog

        The class store.

  • The Flobbit

    Liam Neeson looks really badass. The cast is excellent, but the quality of this film depends on McFarlane’s writing skills…
