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.

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.

A quick glance at the /Film archives reveals the fourth Mad Max movie, Mad Max: Fury Road, has been in the public eye since early 2009. Four years is a normal amount of time for fans to be aware of a movie’s existence (we sometimes hear about movies before scripts exist, for example) but what makes Fury Road so unique is it was supposed to shoot in 2010, then was delayed to a 2012 shoot, and now it’s 2013. The film’s in the can and there’s still no release date in place. The photo above is all we’ve seen.
While most experts tend to think we’ll see George Miller‘s 3D sequel starring Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron in 2014, there’s apparently still work to be done. A new report says the director – who shot the film in Africa last year – is heading to Australia in November for three more weeks of filming. Read More »

Charlize Theron hasn’t done a lot of comedy in her career, though at least one of her efforts — Young Adult — is one of the most painfully funny movies of the last few years. She’s lined up another comedy, Seth MacFarlane’s western A Million Ways to Die in the West, and now is taking to one more.
Fred Savage, who has gone from the young star of TV’s The Wonder Years to a good television director in his own right, is in talks to make a feature comedy called Ladies Night. Theron would star in the film written by David Caspe (Happy Endings) that follows a woman who has a big night of fun with friends before moving away to start a new life. Read More »

A Thomas Pynchon novel is really, truly headed to the big screen from a reputable director. And that director is Paul Thomas Anderson — what a wonderful world this is!
Anderson took quite a long time to finance, make and release The Master, which hit theaters five years after his previous film, There Will Be Blood. But if there’s any justice, his follow-up to The Master could hit in 2014. Reports now say that he plans to shoot Inherent Vice, based on Pynchon’s novel, this spring. We knew he wanted to shoot the film this year, but we’ll be excited every time the start date gets closer to finalization. That’s quite a shortened turnaround time for the director. Read More »
