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”.

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

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.

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.

DADS Preview: New Fox Comedy Starring Seth Green Is Riddled With Problems

by     Posted 212 days ago

dads-slice

Seth Green is very funny, and he does a lot towards an attempt at success with Dads, the story of two best friends whose dads come back to live with them.  The rest of the show, though, has a lot to make up for.  There is a laugh track, first of all, which is more CBS’s thing than Fox.  Same goes for its multi-camera set up, especially since this show will be followed by Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which does not have a laugh track and seems to fit in better with Fox’s other comedy programming.  Still, hit the jump for the good, bad and ugly of Dads.

GANGSTER SQUAD Blu-ray Review

by     Posted 339 days ago

gangster-squad-slice

Considering that the film was bumped around from September to January due to a national tragedy, it would be nice to feel a little sorry for Ruben Fleischer’s Gangster Squad.  The period film, which casts Josh Brolin and Ryan Gosling as cops going against Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) for control of Los Angeles, has a great cast and period setting.  On top of that, The Untouchables is a great film and it wouldn’t be the worst thing to see more films like it.  And yet, Gangster Squad is a total miss.  My review of the Blu-ray follows after the jump.

GANGSTER SQUAD Review

by     Posted 1 year, 97 days ago

It’s a bit disappointing that Ruben Fleischer‘s Gangster Squad can live in such a rich setting and still feel so light.  As seen through a grand tradition of films dating back over 70 years, post-war Los Angeles was boozy, hedonistic, dangerous, and dark.  Gangster Squad waters down this colorful world, and simply coasts on being an amusing, frivolous action film.  There’s nothing wrong with that, and with a strong cast at his disposal, Fleischer finds a nice blend between the style he brought to Zombieland and the spirit of the time period.  Unfortunately, a thin plot and even thinner characters make Gangster Squad as intense as a drive-by shooting and just as fleeting.

TOP 5: MAN OF STEEL, THE HOBBIT Interviews, PACIFIC RIM, GANGSTER SQUAD Set Visit, AFTER EARTH

by     Posted 1 year, 122 days ago

collider-top-5-slice

I offered a similar sentiment following the tragedy at Aurora, CO back in July and I’ll do the same today: the event that unfolded yesterday in Newtown, CT is inexcusable and genuinely heartbreaking, even from a distance. The optimist in me wants to believe that any negative situation can be used to educate and improve the world we live in going forward. In this case, I’m hopeful but unsure that’s possible. On behalf of everyone here at Collider, I want to offer our deepest condolences to the family and friends of those who were lost yesterday.

As petty as it may seem, I feel fortunate to be able to offer a bit of diversion to your day with this week’s Top 5. Included in a trailer-heavy rotation this week is a new cut from Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel, The Hobbit interviews with Martin Freeman, Andy Serkis and more, the first trailer for Guillermo del Toro‘s Pacific Rim, Andre’s coverage from his Gangster Squad set visit, and the first look at Will Smith and Jaden Smith gallivanting across the human unfriendly Mother Earth found in M. Night Shyamalan’s After Earth. A brief recap and link to each will greet you after the jump.

Though there was a while there where they tried to turn him into a star, Giovanni Ribisi has settled into to being a great character actor, and as a supporting player, he’s proved himself to be one of the most reliable supporting performers working today. In Gangster Squad he plays the techie, which if the film is to be compared to The Untouchables, is the Charles Martin Smith role. But Ribisi was ready to play and we talked about his character and acting in our interview, which follows after the jump.
