'A Million Ways to Die in the West' Red Band TV Spots: Deaths Out West

It's not just Marvel superhero blockbusters that are opening this month; we'll also be getting a couple of star-driven comedy offering as well. The one closing out the first quarter of the Summer Movie Season is A Million Ways to Die in the West - directed, co-written by, and starring Seth MacFarlane, bringing his brand of Ted and Family Guy comedy to the western genre, with a comical satire of Hollywood's romanticized vision of the Old West, in the vein of Mel Brooks' Blazing Saddles (among other films).

Over the top comical deaths - the sort that resembles the cartoony violence from MacFarlane's Family Guy animated series more than the raunchy humor of his feature directorial debut with Ted - have been the focus of the Million Ways trailer marketing thus far. In keeping with that approach, a new batch of red band TV spots for the film break down the eponymous different ways to perish in an orderly, Zombieland-style - where the cause of death is revealed, followed by footage from the movie to illustrate said manner of dying and/or its cause as featured in MacFarlane's R-Rated yuckfest.

You can watch the first of those Million Ways red band clips above (via Screen Crush); below are the additional TV spots, exclusively unveiled by Guyism, Uproxx, Bro Bible, and Collider, respectively.

There is also a new poster for A Million Ways to Die in the West, which you can have a look at below. It may cause you to let out a guilty chuckle or two since, in what is quite the inappropriate fashion, the one-sheet identifies MacFarlane as "the guy who brought you ted." No other reason, though.

There's not a whole lot about A Million Ways to Die in the West that suggests it's going to win over anyone who's not already a fan of MacFarlane and his brand of pop culture-savy, lowbrow, political correctness-be-damned approach to earning laughs. Then again, it doesn't really need to, considering that Ted grossed over half a billion dollars worldwide in theaters (with a sequel arriving in 2015). Suffice it to say, MacFarlane has more than his fair share of fans as it is.

Rounding out the A Million Ways to Die in the West cast are Charlize Theron, Liam Neeson, Amanda Seyfried, Neil Patrick Harris, Sarah Silverman, and Giovanni Ribisi.


A Million Ways to Die in the West opens in U.S. theaters on May 30th, 2014.
