Seth McFarlane’s first feature film, TED, in theaters next Friday
Seth McFarlane, creator of the animated comedy Family Guy, will be debuting his first attempt at a feature film next Friday. The premise — a little boy’s wish that his teddy bear could talk to him comes true — sounds innocent enough, but give it an R-rating and McFarlane can use all the four-letter words and crude jokes he wants.
Mark Wahlberg stars as John Bennet, the now grown-up boy whose wish comes true, and McFarlane himself voices the titular character, Ted. Mila Kunis co-stars as John’s girlfriend, Lori Collins, who finds Ted to be a nuisance and a bad influence. From the looks of it — Ted and John sharing a bong, Ted bringing home strippers, f-bombs galore — Ted seems to be going in the same off-putting yet entertaining direction as Family Guy.
Below are some official images, a junket interview with Wahlberg and Kunis, the official trailer, and a Funny or Die spoof of the film.
