Seth MacFarlane’s R-rated Ted (read our review) topped the box office over the weekend, grossing an impressive $54 million. The Mark Wahlberg and Mila Kunis film now has the second best debut for an R-rated comedy (lagging behindThe Hangover 2’s $85 million), and it is also the second biggest opening of Walhberg’s career, trailing in the $68 million slipstream of 2001’s misjudged Planet of the Apes.
The film nudges 2000’s The Perfect Storm into third place on the list of Walhberg’s movie openings.
The $50 million film should turn out to be very profitable for Universal over the coming weeks as it has little to no competition on the comedy front. The talking teddy movie should then go on to earn even more cash once it hits DVD.
