From Universal Studios Home Entertainment: A Million Ways to Die in the West


UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., Aug.5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Sparks and bullets fly between a gun-shy sheep farmer and a beautiful sharpshooter in A Million Ways to Die in the West, an outrageously irreverent comedy coming exclusively to Digital HD on September 9, 2014 and DVD and Blu-ray Combo Pack on October 7, 2014, from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. Coinciding with the digital release date of the film will be a deluxe version of the soundtrack album, featuring additional score cues by composer Joel McNeely. This album will be available exclusively through iTunes.

Seth MacFarlane, creator of "Family Guy" and the blockbuster comedy feature film Ted, directs, produces, co-writes and stars in this sweet and saucy film packed with laughs, lunacy and just the right amount of romance. A never-before-seen UNRATED version of the film, featuring 18 additional laugh-packed minutes is available exclusively on Blu-ray and Digital HD. A Million Ways to Die in the West DVD and Blu-ray Combo Pack each offer hilarious bonus content, including deleted scenes, alternate takes, feature commentary and much more.

MacFarlane is joined by an all-star cast including Academy Award-winner Charlize Theron (Snow White and the Huntsman, Prometheus), Liam Neeson (Non-Stop, Taken), Neil Patrick Harris ("How I Met Your Mother", Hedwig and the Angry Inch), Amanda Seyfried (Les Miserables, Mamma Mia), Giovanni Ribisi (Ted, Avatar) and Sarah Silverman (Wreck-It Ralph, "The League").

When Albert Stark (Seth MacFarlane) loses his fickle fiancee (Amanda Seyfried) to a mustachioed dandy (Neil Patrick Harris), he rebounds hard with Anna (Charlize Theron), a gorgeous gunslinger new to his Old West town. What he doesn't know is that Anna's ex, Clinch Leatherwood (Liam Neeson), is the most dangerous desperado on the horizon and he's on his way to reclaim his galwhatever it takes. With MacFarlane's bold and bawdy humor and a host of surprise celebrity cameos, A Million Ways to Die in the West will have audiences splitting their britches!
