‘Ted’ Red-Band Featurette, Clip & TV Spots: MacFarlane’s Warm, Fuzzy, Screwed Up Fairy Tale [Updated]

Published 3 years ago by , Updated May 12th, 2013 at 7:54 am,

Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane is making the jump to the big screen with Ted, his new comedy starring Mark Wahlberg as John Bennett, a slacker who still hangs with his childhood teddy bear – who is, in fact, alive (and voiced with foul-mouthed fervor by MacFarlane). When John’s girlfriend Lori (Mila Kunis) tries to get closer, Ted  finds himself becoming an unwelcome third wheel.

Today’s featurette paints the picture described above, while giving some finer brushstrokes to ideas the movie will explore. As a bonus (and for those who like that sort of thing), there is also plenty of R-rated language. In other words, the video above  is NSFW.

Personally, I wasn’t sold on the trailer for Ted, but since then, TV Spots like the ones below have helped the film grow on me. If anything, it should be a harmless slice of juvenile fun in the hot season of summer. Of course, if you don’t care for MacFarlane’s brand of comedy – seen in his animated shows Family GuyCleveland Show, and American Dad - well, then, Ted will probably NOT be for you

Check out the red-band clip and TV spots below:

Ted will be in theaters on June 29, 2012.

  1. im excited to see this. i can only imagine how this movie will be. especially seeing how much he gets away with on Family Guy

    • hahaha

    • Haha…thanks for that man. Gave me a new website to look at when I get bored at work :D

  2. This looks terra-bad. Uuuug.

  3. This looks like a good lazy afternoon movie. Most likely around 4:20 or so. ;)

  4. I cannot and will not support any endeavors by Mister Walhberg.

  5. So, teddy bears talk and get jobs in the USA too? Nice! And I thought my country was weird.

    PS: Basically, this is live action “Family Guy” cartoon based humor, except there aren’t any cartoons. Makes sense.

  6. Speaking of screwed up fairy tales who would want to see a Todd McFarlane movie based on the Twisted Land of Oz line from a few years back? That would be an awesome movie if done right. Have always thought that ever since the figures came out years ago.

    • I think the world of OZ deserves a bit more respect/reverence than that. Next thing you know people will be making a move adaption of, “Bored of the Rings”

  7. Yes to the Twisted Land of OZ and yes to this film! God bless you Seth Macfarlane, I walk with humility and reverence in your f****** shadow.

  8. This is bad. Like… “wow, they really are releasing this??” kind of bad.

    Is there really any kind of sanity check in Hollywood anymore?

    Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
    The Watch
    Magic Mike
    GI Joe 2
    Tyler Perry in anything

    I mean, really! It’s become assembly line cinema!

    Vic, can you make a BookRant page?

    • I pretty much agree with everything you said. Hollywood is becoming a joke. Maybe it already is a joke.

      I am looking forward to what Tyler Perry does as Alex Cross.

    • Just have an “open mind”!! The film looks HILARIOUS!!!

  9. Thats so awesome

  10. What was wrong with Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter as a book? Certainly a lot better than all that crap that constitutes the teen sections in bookstores. Every time I see that, that drivel, I want to take a thing of gas, a lighter or just one match, and boom, no more. I have been spoiled by Dracula.

  11. As stupid as this movie is, I laughed and smirked all the way through it.

    This will be one of those guilty pleasures I will be renting from RedBox (sorry but my movie dollars are only spent on movie experiences I can’t get on TV).

  12. I still think it looks funny (and I’m not ashamed to say it).
    I probably won’t go see it in theaters though, but I will watch it at some point.

  13. I’ll check it out (including THE DARK KNIGHT RISES when it opens). Looks HILARIOUS!!
