Sponsored Video: The ‘Ted’ RedBand Trailer
What would happen if a teddy bear came to life? That is the question posed by the new movie Ted. Ted is a comedy from the wacky mind of creator Seth MacFarlane (TV’s “Family Guy”). Here, MacFarlane makes his directorial debut for the big screen as well as stars as the voice of the titular Ted. He also played Ted in most scenes using motion capture technology to give Ted, the bear, realism. Whatever he did, it worked! Audiences are sure to be hooked on the lovable and crass humor of Ted.
The film co-stars “it girl” of the moment Mila Kunis (Friends With Benefits) and the always strong – since Boogie Nights – Mark Wahlberg. John Bennett is a lonely kid who wishes for his teddy bear to come to life. Magically, his wish is granted and Ted is born. Ted goes from celebrity burn out to being the roommate of his buddy for life John (Wahlberg). But will Kunis’ Lori, John’s girlfriend, cause John and Ted to have to go their separate ways? That is the crux of the problem in Ted. Can Ted and 35 year-old John’s relationship survive Lori and John’s relationship? You have to see it to find out as Ted hilariously injects boundary-pushing humor into a story with some heart.
Ted will invade theatres in the UK on August 1st. In the meantime, the movie is cleaning house at the U.S. box office, having already taken in more than $160 million. Ted is easily set to be the funniest comedy of the summer and quite possibly the year, with the box office numbers to back it up. Ted is a comedy that is not to be missed! Check out the video below and make sure to hit off your local movie house to see the film as soon as you can. Enjoy!
