People Die At The Fair

Earlier last week, we got a series of character posters for Seth MacFarlane's A Million Ways To Die In The West.I said at the time that unless the trailer really sucked, I was going to be looking forward to this one. Well, at the end of the week the trailer, above, dropped. And...

I like it. MacFarlane obviously has written the film to his strengths, ie. sexual depravity and extreme foulness. But, anyone familiar with the time period has to admit that those aren't too far off the mark. I like the use of western tropes to set up decidedly modern jokes. Blazing Saddles did the same thing. Don't get me wrong, I'm not comparing this to Blazing Saddles. I haven't seen this yet. Only the trailer. And I like the trailer.

And, very few people give Charlize Theron a chance to be funny. Which is a shame, because she's hilarious when given a chance. So that's one thing Million Ways will have going for it.
