New Image from A MILLION WAYS TO DIE IN THE WEST Starring Seth MacFarlane, Charlize Theron, Amanda Seyfried, and Neil Patrick Harris

     January 23, 2014


Universal Pictures has released a new image from Seth MacFarlane‘s A Million Ways to Die in the West.  The Western comedy 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.  The great cast also includes Charlize Theron, Liam Neeson, Amanda Seyfried, Sarah Silverman, Giovanni Ribisi, and Neil Patrick Harris.  Like the first image from the film, this one doesn’t tell us much about the tone of the picture, but hopefully we’ll be seeing a trailer soon.

Hit the jump to check out the image.  A Million Ways to Die in the West opens on May 30th.

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.

    Seth looks like he is dolled up and wearing makeup in that photo. More so than the woman.

    Amanda Seyfried looks like CGI.

    Ted made more than half a billion dollar for universal,(highly unusual for a comedy to be as successful internationally as domestically ) so it’s understandable that they want to stay in the Seth marcfarlane business. When a company wants to keep on the good side of an actor or director, the company might want to take the actor or director’s vanity project.
    Vanity projects don’t necessarily makes money (after earth, magnolia, pain & gain) because the studio is not interested in those projects therefore don’t market them well. The studios want to get those projects out of the way as quick as they can so the actor or the director goes back to making the studio money
    A million ways to die in the west is Seth marcfarlane’s vanity project, and universal wants Seth marcfarlane to go back and make ted 2 . So the questions are: is Seth marcfarlane a bankable property,? More importantly, will his style of comedy and pop culture reference suit a western ? People especially Foreign audiences don’t like western (lone ranger, remake of true grit being the exception) but will they like a western comedy? More importantly do people know what Seth marcfarlane look like???? Sure they know his comedy but maybe not his baby face
    I predict this movie will fail at the box office because it won’t be marketed well and universal just wants to get the movie out of theaters quick so Seth marcfarlane can concentrate on ted 2 ( so he doesn’t have to do press in foreign markets )

      Well, Mixed Race…you sound like you want to sound like you know what you’re talking about, but I’m afraid you don’t, not really. How do you know this is MacFarlane’s ‘vanity project’? Even so, so what? Look, I’m not a fan of this guy or his work. Ted was unwatchable unless you’re an immature dummy. But if you think that Universal is going to dump this picture you’re sadly mistaken. They will ride the Ted bandwagon and the MacFarlane thing to the max. This film will be marketed with top dollar and with grade A PR. To do any less would be stupid and bad business on the part of Universal. Not to mention if they don’t highly market and push this film they will really risk ruining the relationship with MacFarlane and their wanting him to do Ted 2. It ain’t gonna happen. Everybody in the world will know about this movie and when it is coming out. You can bet your bottom dollar on that. This movie will stink and all the immature buffoons who liked Ted will flock to it and no doubt love it too. Not my cup of tea and you couldn’t drag me to this movie. Just wanted to enlighten you on your mistaken take on this whole fiasco. You can thank me if you wish…lol…

    I don’t go around spewing negativity but I can’t imagine this being good. Ted was moderately funny at best with a terrible plot. The plot of this one is barebones to say the least. The screenshots don’t show me very convincingly western looking actors. They look way to clean and the costumes look crisp and brand new. Not realistic. I’m just simply not excited for a goofy western, childish joke movie.

      Same. Perhaps the excellent cast can make it pull through… This seems like a gender-reversed Jane’s Got a Gun, which is the one I’M looking forward to.
