While Seth MacFarlane could've taken the easy road and simply cranked out a sequel following his surprise smash hit "Ted" (though, yes, "Ted 2" is slated for a 2015 release) he chose to raise his game for his sophomore feature film. Taking a lead role, and tackling a genre that's tricky to pull off (Western Comedy), the result is "A Million Ways To Die In The West" and the first trailer is here.

A Million Ways to Die in the West'

While Seth MacFarlane could've taken the easy road and simply cranked out a sequel following his surprise smash hit "Ted" (though, yes, "Ted 2" is slated for a 2015 release) he chose to raise his game for his sophomore feature film. Taking a lead role, and tackling a genre that's tricky to pull off (Western Comedy), the result is "A Million Ways To Die In The West" and the first trailer is here.

Co-starring a wacky ensemble that includes Amanda Seyfried, Neil Patrick Harris, Liam Neeson, Sarah Silverman and Giovanni Ribisi, the story follows a cowardly sheep farmer whose girlfriend leaves him after he backs out of a gunfight. But redemption and love may be around the corner when a new woman rides into town, though, first, the farmer will have to deal with her outlaw husband who arrives looking for revenge. 

So, will this be "Back To The Future III" or "Blazing Saddles"? Watch the trailer below and let us know in the comments section. 'Die In The West' on May 30, 2014. Update 2/2: Green band trailer below as well, if swearing and other R-rated stuff offends you.
