Thunder buddies John and Ted may not have a lot of luck with women in 2015′s Ted 2. Writer/director/star Seth MacFarlane has just cast Amanda Seyfried as the leading love interest in the film. That might sound odd considering the place John (played by Mark Wahlberg, who is returning) was in at the end of the first film with Mila Kunis’ character. However, she may only appear in a small role this time around, if at all, with Seyfried acting as the new romantic lead. Read More »

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.

If the revival of Cosmos turns out well, it will go a long way to offsetting any other perceived sins committed by producer Seth MacFarlane. Given free reign by Fox, the Family Guy creator has overseen an effects-heavy new edition of Carl Sagan’s pioneering science show. This 2014 edition is hosted by the most prominent current bridge between pop culture and science, Neil deGrasse Tyson, and features input from many of the scientists and thinkers who contribute to Sagan’s original series more than 30 years ago. Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey appears to span the gulf between the smallest Earthly existence and the far reaches of the universe — simply put, this new trailer makes it look spectacular. Read More »
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.

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.

Briefly: Ted is coming later than we thought. Initially, writer director Seth MacFarlane announced a April 2015 release for Ted 2, the sequel to last year’s smash hit comedy. And while the follow-up hasn’t even begun production, that date has already changed.
Ted 2, starring Mark Wahlberg, will now be released June 26, 2015. It’s a weekend in a super packed summer that no one had yet claimed and will mark Wahlberg’s second straight summer with a July 4 weekend release (Transformers: Age of Extinction is out June 27, 2014.)
