Seems like only yesterday, we were wishing for Seth MacFarlane to use his obvious intelligence for better things than sex jokes based on the word "ho." As if on cue, we now have a new trailer for his reboot of Cosmos with Neil deGrasse Tyson. The approach appears to be "use a shit-ton of special effects to get people interested in science," but Dr. Tyson's ability to explain big ideas in plain language may end up being the best special effect of all.

Is Mr. Family Guy going family friendly? Well, not entirely...



Then there's A Million Ways to Die in the West, which, truer to its title than the poster campaign, appears to be all about Itchy & Scratchy style violent deaths for comedic effect. Putting himself in the lead still seems like a big mistake, but at least he's not doing the Peter Griffin voice again. And Liam Neeson appears to have a great career in self-parody ahead of him, what with this and The Lego Movie on the horizon.
