The measure of a dirty comedy can be the green-band trailer. It’s easy to sell something with outrageous jokes and sex, but can the film in question hold up when it has to play it safe? Seth MacFarlane‘s A Million Ways to Die in the West has all the raunchy stuff covered, as shown in the red-band trailer. But what about the story? We know MacFarlane can make things work without being totally nasty — his background is in TV, after all. But given the chance to cut loose, as seems to be the case here, what’s in the film that isn’t R-rated material? There are still some good PG jokes here, and Charlize Theron looks like she’s having a good time. Check it out below.

The new film from Family Guy and Ted creator Seth MacFarlane is a western, but otherwise it looks like just what you’d expect from the guy: a violent, vulgar, kinda weird comedy about a guy who maybe isn’t cut out for the frontier. Check out the first red-band trailer for A Million Ways to Die in the West below. It is very not safe for work. Read More »
Seth MacFarlane had already conquered TV when he released his feature debut, Ted, in 2012. The film was a smash, he went on to host the Oscars and while some are looking at 2015′s Ted 2 as the director’s next foray into the multiplex, he actually has a pretty huge film out this year.
It’s the western comedy called A Million Ways To Die In The West, which tells the story of a meek farmer (MacFarlane) who loses his girlfriend after backing out of a gunfight, then falls in with a mysterious woman who has an evil outlaw boyfriend. The cast is super impressive (Charlize Theron, Liam Neeson, Amanda Seyfried, Sarah Silverman, Giovanni Ribisi and Neil Patrick Harris) and now you can see them all in character on eight different posters.

Just a few days after the title of Quentin Tarantino‘s next project was revealed to be The Hateful Eight, the director has indefinitely delayed the film. The reason? He’s “very, very depressed” after learning that someone has leaked the screenplay.
But there’s hope yet that we’ll get to see the story — just not necessarily in movie form. Tarantino is reportedly considering publishing the script as a novel, with the possibility of a movie adaptation down the line. Hit the jump for the latest updates.

The title of Quentin Tarantino‘s next film might have just been revealed. Late last year, the Oscar-winning writer revealed his follow-up to Django Unchained would be an unrelated western and Deadline is reporting the working title to that film is The Hateful Eight. They also report Tarantino has begun to circulate an early draft of the script to some actors he’s interested in appearing in the film. The first is no surprise. It’s his Oscar-winning muse Christoph Waltz. The second is current Oscar-contender Bruce Dern. Filming might take place this summer. Read More »
As things tend to go in Iranian film, we don’t hear about a lot of westerns, and probably fewer films that involve vampires. So when the claim can be made that A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night is the first Iranian vampire western, and one directed by a woman, to boot, there’s plenty reason to be curious. The film is Ana Lily Amirpour’s debut as a director, and will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival later this month.
Oh, and the film comes from SpectreVision, which is the relatively new genre-oriented company created by Elijah Wood, Daniel Noah and Josh C. Waller.
Check out a brief teaser and a striking poster, below. Read More »
Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane follows up his comedy Ted with a comedy western called A Million Ways to Die in the West, and the first image from the new film is online. While MacFarlane “starred” as Ted in his directorial debut, there he had a CG creation between him and the audience; for this film, the writer/director is taking one of the lead roles with no CG costume. He stars opposite Charlize Theron, Neil Patrick Harris, and Amanda Seyfried in a story about a farmer who loses his girlfriend after backing out of a gunfight, then falls in with a mysterious woman who, unfortunately, has a notorious outlaw boyfriend.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Over the last few years, Quentin Tarantino‘s filmmaking process has accelerated just a bit. We’d grown accustomed to the guy taking a good bit of time between films, but his announcement of Inglourious Basterds was followed just a year later by the film’s first screening, and then Django Unchained came relatively hot on the heels of the war movie. (OK, it was a couple years, but that’s better than four or five years.)
Every round of promotional tours that takes place leads to Tarantino talking about possible new script ideas, and now we’ve got a new one. While making an appearance on The Tonight Show just hours ago, kind of as a 20th anniversary of his first time on the show, Tarantino said that the script he’s finishing now is a new western.
Update: Video of the segment has been added below.
