Stephen Soderbergh was retired but now he’s un-retired and he’s made a new heist movie with Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Riley Keough, and Daniel Craig. Let’s take a look.
Ted 2 is coming whether we like it or not. Here’s a thing new trailer for it that make it seem like it might be pretty funny, so there’s that. This is a red band trailer so be sure to use headphones or, you know, just don’t watch it at work.
Seth McFarlane’s first feature film Ted was a great little film. Not perfect, but it latched onto a story trope we’d seen before (grown man needs to grow out of his immature ways, is held back by immature childhood best friend) and took its to its logical extreme (best friend is his childhood toy) and the result was both R-Rated hilarious and heartfelt but without getting too bogged down in “ugh, I’ve seen this before.” It didn’t hurt either that McFarlane’s voice performance as Ted was inspired as though he was getting every r-rated joke he’d been wanting to do on family Guy out all at once.
McFarlane’s second feature takes aim at the Wild West. It’s still R-rated and it’s still a comedy but where Ted managed to break the mold A Million Ways To Die In The West stays pretty firmly in its mold. That’s not to say it’s not funny. I laughed a bunch of times. Not enough times though, and the rest of the time I was bored.
It’s an awesome photo but it totally spoils some things. Apparently it’s been spoiled in some places anyway but still, if you want to go in blind (and I recommend you do) then don’t keep reading this post. I mean, McFarlane himself tweeted it, but still. Stop reading if you haven’t seen it.
Hot on the heels of all the character posters we get a red band trailer for Seth McFarlane’s A Million Ways To Die In The West.
Seth McFarlane is the undisputed king of television, or at least Fox Television, and his first big film Ted was a huge hit for good reason: it was great. His second effort, the western comedy “A Million Ways To Die In The West” is out this year and here are some character posters he released on twitter this morning.
