Coming off all the hype of his freshman film, Ted, things seem to be shaping up nicely for Seth MacFarlane’s latest big screen effort, A Million Ways to Die in the West. Starring a hefty cast including MacFarlane, Charlize Theron, Amanda Seyfried, Liam Neeson, Giovanni Ribisi, Sarah Silverman, and Neil Patrick Harris, it’s very possible the upcoming western could be the most talked-about comedy of the summer.
Today, 8 new posters were released, 7 of which feature the ensemble cast:
We should all take a moment to marvel in the greatness that is Neil Patrick Harris’ mustache. Give it a moment… Okay, got that image burned in? Good. Now move on over to that bad-ass Liam Neeson poster. The man has been on a roll in recent years, and a western seems like the perfect place for him. And really, there’s only one response to the Sarah Silverman and Amanda Seyfried posters: Ooh la la.
According to Variety, A Million Ways to Die in the West “follows a cowardly sheep farmer who backs out of a gunfight and loses his fickle girlfriend in the process, who 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.”
Don’t all that just sound grand? If this film is even half as good as Ted, we’re all in for a real treat come May 30th.
