We’re winding down Best Of 2014 Week here at ScreenCrush with today’s lists of the best TV shows and movie posters (to go along with our already completed lists of the best movies and trailers). But in this time of celebration, let’s not lose sight of what’s really important: Making jokes about terrible movies. 2014 was jammed with exceptional films, but those great movies were surrounded (and often crowded-out of multiplexes) by plenty of stinkers as well. As we bid a fond farewell to the year in movies, ScreenCrush Editor-In-Chief Mike Sampson and I decided to take one final look back at the flops that nearly destroyed us. But like that old expression says: That which does not kill us makes us write strongly-worded listicles.

We're knee-deep in the summer movie season and the hits just keep on coming. Despite mixed buzz, 'Maleficent' opened very strong, not coming close to the massive numbers of the past few weekends, but certainly holding its own. However, the success of Disney's latest live action effort meant that the weekend's other big release, Seth MacFarlane's 'A Million Ways to Die in the West,' fared less well.

'A Million Ways To Die In The West' Review: The Most Important Movie Ever Made

It’s interesting that Universal is promoting ‘A Million Ways to Die in the West,’ a film that is not funny, as a comedy. I suspect it has a lot to do with the human carnage we witness on screen being unbearable to watch, so the only way to desensitize an audience’s eyes to what they're about to witness is to somehow convince the viewer that what their about to see is a comedy – even though there is not one laugh to be had.

It's hard to not find something to admire about the new 'A Million Ways to Die in the West' trailer. After all, director/star Seth MacFarlane could have rode the massive success of 'Ted' down far more accessible and surefire avenues, but nope, here he is, making an uber-violent western comedy. Even if you don't find his sense of humor humor amusing, you've got to cut him some slack for stepping far outside of Hollywood's comfort zone.

Hot on the heels of yesterday's character posters, Universal has released the 'A Million Ways to Die in the West' trailer, giving us the first footage of Seth MacFarlane's live-action western comedy -- and it is really, really taking advantage of that red-band warning. There's blood, loads of profanity, and plenty of that crass humor we've come to associate with MacFarlane's endeavors. And Sarah Silverman's playing a prostitute, so you can imagine how that plays out.

Seth MacFarlane is following up his live-action directorial debut, 'Ted,' with 'A Million Ways to Die in the West,' a satirical Western-comedy with an all-star cast. Regardless of how you feel about MacFarlane's animated projects, like 'Family Guy' and 'American Dad,' his latest effort is sure to get butts in seats ... especially after you take a gander at these new character posters, featuring some pretty pun-tastic, old-timey captions.

'A Million Ways to Die in the West': First Look at Seth MacFarlane's Western

After the massive success of his directorial debut, 'Ted,' 'Family Guy' creator Seth MacFarlane had the clout to make pretty much whatever he wanted for his second feature. A Western comedy called 'A Million Ways to Die in the West' probably wasn't the easiest project to push through development (the difficult word for the studio must have been "Western"), but we've got to commend MacFarlane for making a film that appears to be significantly different than his previous work. The first image from the film has arrived online, and it features three things that we can't wait to see and one that we're very unsure about.

After all, MacFarlane's 'Ted' shattered all expectations at the box office last year, so they'd be foolish not to. Also hidden away in the announcement: Neil Patrick Harris has joined the cast, adding another great name to a shockingly solid ensemble.
