Red band trailer for Seth MacFarlane’s A MILLION WAYS TO DIE IN THE WEST is pretty fun stuff


Just yesterday we posted seven new posters for FAMILY GUY creator Seth MacFarlane’s new movie A MILLION WAYS TO DIE IN THE WEST, and today we get our first solid look at the film via a new red band trailer… and it’s definitely “red band” in nature. I think initially the concept of a wacky and satirical Western would turn people off (WILD, WILD WEST comes to mind), but from the looks of the trailer MacFarlane seems to be bringing back the Zucker Brothers (AIRPLANE, THE NAKED GUN) sensibilities. I was also reminded of another comedy Western flick called RUSTLER’S RHAPSODY, which I have fond memories of. One thing Seth is successfully parodying is the dangers and frequent peril of living in the “Old West”, and how anyone could die at any minute. Take a look at the trailer (definitely not safe for work) and tell us your thoughts in the comments. This one is definitely on our radar.
