A-Million-Ways-to-Die-in-the-West-sliceIn the past few days, we’ve had some great first-look images, including Ben Affleck in David Fincher’s Gone Girl and Christian Bale in Ridley Scott’s Exodus, and now it’s time for our first look at Seth MacFarlane’s anticipated A Million Ways to Die in the West.

The Western-comedy marks MacFarlane’s sophomore feature, and given the ingenuity of his directorial debut, Ted, it’s understandable that the film is one we’re most looking forward to this year.

With less than half a year on the clock before it hits cinemas, Universal has released the first image from the film, and here’s to hoping that the first trailer won’t be too far behind.

A Million Ways to Die in the West follows a cowardly sheep farmer (MacFarlane) who chickens out of a gunfight and sees his girlfriend (Seyfried) leave him for another man. When a mysterious woman (Theron) rides into town, she helps him find his courage. But when her outlaw husband arrives seeking revenge, the farmer must put his newfound courage to the test.

MacFarlane heads up the brilliant ensemble cast, starring alongside Amanda Seyfried, Charlize Theron, Neil Patrick Harris, Giovanni Ribisi, Liam Neeson, and Sarah Silverman.

MacFarlane is directing from a script he co-wrote with frequent collaborators Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild (Ted, Family Guy), with the writer-director also producing alongside Scott Stuber and Jason Clark.

A Million Ways in the West will be released in the US on May 30th, before coming to the UK a week later on 6th June.
