You sorta gotta admire the hubris. After his directorial debut "Ted" became a massive hit, Seth MacFarlane hosted the Oscars and embarked on his next feature effort, the western comedy "A Million Ways To Die In The West." And oh yeah, he gave himself the leading role. Now the question is whether or not audiences prefer him in front of the camera or just sticking behind it and doing funny voices.

A Million Ways To Die in The West

You sorta gotta admire the hubris. After his directorial debut "Ted" became a massive hit, Seth MacFarlane hosted the Oscars and embarked on his next feature effort, the western comedy "A Million Ways To Die In The West." And oh yeah, he gave himself the leading role. Now the question is whether or not audiences prefer him in front of the camera or just sticking behind it and doing funny voices.

A new red band trailer for the R-rated movie has dropped and it's....broad. The movie, about a simple man who faces off against a notorious outlaw to win the heart of the woman he loves, isn't short on jokes, but they all seem to have a need to be underscored by a reaction shot or one-liner from MacFarlane. But luckily, he's got a much more reliable crew around him with Charlize Theron, Amanda Seyfried, Giovanni Ribisi,  Neil Patrick Harris, Sarah Silverman and Liam Neeson all popping up in supporting roles.

You can 'Die In The West' on May 30th. Watch below.
