We’ve now got our first look at A Million Ways To Die In The West, Seth MacFarlane’s ambitious comedy western that boasts what looks to be a fancier cast and considerably more vision than his usual fare. Which is a nice way of saying he’s going to spend more money than ever before for the same dopey jokes about dicks, farts and women being complete and total sex objects. If you’ve got it, flaunt it, baby.
The first of these character posters features Liam Neeson as a man who apparently has a tremendous penis. That’s the joke. Unless the joke is that outlaws have small penises. What’s the common perception? Does Seth know more about penises than we do?
Here is the lovely Amanda Seyfried, who apparently is participating in the California Gold Rush, placing the film’s narrative between 1848 to 1855. It’s uncertain how she will pan for gold in that extravagant dress, but Ms. Seyfried looks nothing if not dignified.
Finally, one-time Oscar host Seth MacFarlane as Albert, the wayward sheep farmer who apparently is ostracized from his friends and family. Poor fellow. This sounds like a depressing movie. A Million Ways To Die In The West opens May 30th.
