In A Million Ways to Die in the West, Seth MacFarlane needs all the help he can get to win back his lady (Amanda Seyfried) after he loses her in a duel. But we did not see aid coming in the form of a 1980s “weather experiment.”

His beloved DeLorean even shows up. Take a look at the trailer below: READ FULL STORY

Charlize Theron hosts 'Saturday Night Live' this week: Talk about it here!

Charlize Theron last hosted Saturday Night Live in November of 2000 — which might as well have been a lifetime ago. The episode, which aired just days before that year’s presidential election, featured a running gag about possible outcomes (President Ralph Nader’s address to the nation is interrupted by a flying pig and frozen devils); the night was filled with Fey-era recurring characters like Will Ferrell’s Robert Goulet and the ladies of Gemini’s Twin and even Chris Kattan’s Mr. Peepers; Theron herself was there to promote The Legend of Bagger Vance, a movie which single-handedly made her chances of ever winning an Oscar seem pretty slim.

Another indication of changing times? Back then, Theron was mainly given only one type of role — the ditzy girl group member, a hot blonde at the Buena Vista Social Club, Marilyn Monroe. But even though Theron is still jaw-droppingly gorgeous, we know now that she’s also capable of being much more than window dressing. Monster proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that she could act — and just as importantly, Arrested Development proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that she can do comedy. Take all the gold stars you want, Charlize.
