Universal has released a new TV spot for 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.  I’m really looking forward to this movie, especially since this TV spot shows the jokes won’t just be foul language and slapstick.  There’s also a business called the “Moustachery”.

The first quarter of 2014 had a good handful of movies that lived up to our expectations including The LEGO Movie, The Raid 2, The Grand Budapest Hotel, and more.  Now we’re at Q2, so it’s time for the blockbusters.  Summer has arrived even earlier than usual with Captain America: The Winter Soldier leading off April, and there are plenty of other sequels headed our way.  There are three sequels on all three of our lists, and while it’s easy to be excited when you have a good idea of what came before, there are also some fresh movies (or at least non-sequels) in the bunch.

Once again, Adam, Dave, and Matt have each compiled a Top 5 list of most-anticipated movies for the next three months.  Hit the jump to find out what they can’t wait to see and why.

TOP 5: Jesse Eisenberg and Jeremy Irons Join BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN, NEIGHBORS, THE FAULT IN OUR STARS, INTERSTELLAR, A MILLION WAYS TO DIE IN THE WEST

With an Oscar nod for Best Documentary under its belt and Matt having named it his favorite film of 2013, the last thing Joshua Oppenheimer‘s The Act of Killing needs is an endorsement from me. And yet, here it is. I watched the film on Netflix several weeks ago and, to be honest, I’m still having trouble coming to grips with it. It’s the most the surreal and disturbing look at human atrocity I’ve seen and the more I think about its subjects and overall approach, the more I’m in awe of the fact that it exists. I drown in hyperbole when thinking of words to describe it because it’s so profound that calling it a “good film” seems not like an understatement but a complete inaccuracy. The Act of Killing is not a “good film”, it’s a stunning work of humanity that makes awards, critical reception, the sentence I’m typing at this very moment, etc., seem absolutely trivial.

Speaking of trivial, in what may go down as one of the worst segues in Collider history, I’ll now attempt to jump into this week’s Top 5. Highlighted today is Jesse Eisenberg and Jeremy Irons joining Zack Snyder‘s Batman vs. Superman, Steve’s Neighbors set visit coverage, the first trailer for The Fault in Our Stars, Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar being exempt from Paramount’s digital mandate, and the first trailer for Seth MacFarlane‘s A Million Ways to Die in the West. Keep reading for a brief recap and link to each of the above.

Universal Pictures has released the first red-band trailer for Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane’s latest directorial feature A Million Ways to Die in the West.  It’s also MacFarlane’s live-action acting debut, and judging from this first look, he’s actually a bit more reserved than his animated counterparts.  The dangers of the wild west more than make up for MacFarlane’s toned-down performance as it looks like the film will live up to its title; just about anything and everything in this world can and will kill you in the most hilarious way possible.

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.

One more casting addition has been made to Seth MacFarlane’s second live-action directorial project, the Western comedy A Million Ways to Die in the West.  Universal Pictures and Media Rights Capital announced the film’s official release date today, and within the press release is the film’s release date and news that Neil Patrick Harris has joined the cast.  MacFarlane leads the ensemble, which also includes Charlize Theron, Liam Neeson, Amanda Seyfried, Sarah Silverman, and Giovanni Ribisi.  Here’s the official synopsis:

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.

MacFarlane co-wrote the script with his Ted scribes Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild, and in addition to starring he will also produce and direct.   A Million Ways to Die in the West opens on May 30, 2014, opposite Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur.

Family Guy mastermind Seth MacFarlane’s next feature directorial effort is adding yet another impressive castmember.  MacFarlane’s Ted follow-up, A Million Ways to Die in the West, already has Charlize Theron, Liam Neeson, Amanda Seyfried, and Giovanni Ribisi set to star alongside MacFarlane, and now Heat Vision reports that Sarah Silverman is in negotiations to join the cast.  The Western comedy centers on a cowardly farmer who backs out of a gunfight and subsequently loses his girlfriend (Seyfried).  He later meets the wife (Theron) of a notorious outlaw who teaches him how to shoot, but runs into trouble when her outlaw husband (Neeson) returns to town seeking revenge.

Should she sign on, Silverman would play the town prostitute who has had her way with just about everyone, “but refuses to have sex with her fiancé (Ribisi), believing that as Christians the couple should wait until marriage before lying down together.”  I’d say that’s pretty spot-on casting.  Production is set to begin this spring.  Hit the jump for casting news concerning the holiday comedy A Friggin’ Christmas Miracle
