Ted Movie Trailer 2012

 

Ted is a comedy film about a stuffed teddy bear that comes to life.

Sure, I admit the premise doesn’t sound very promising, but did I mention that the movie is written and directed by Seth MacFarlane? The film also features Mark Wahlberg as an adult male with maturity issues. But the real selling point is the vocal talents of Seth MacFarlane, as the vulgar talking bear. Things get complicated when Wahlberg’s character, John,  falls in love with the affable and beautiful Lori, played by Mila Kunis.

I think what’s most interesting about the ad campaign for Ted is how drastically different in tone the two released trailers are. The green band trailer advertises a version of the movie that comes off as a family film parody. The results are mildly amusing and shall we say… cute…and not in a good way. The red band restricted trailer, however,  is arguably one of the funniest trailers I’ve seen so far this year. I found myself laughing out loud, hysterically at the inappropriate jokes and witty, profane dialogue.

The question I ask myself is what version will the final product be. The forgettable family film parody or the hysterical,  inappropriate, hard R comedy. Common wisdom would indicate that it would be a bit of both. But based on Seth McFarlane’s creative vision I’m willing to bet that it’s the hard R comedy we’ll be seeing this July.

Thankfully.

Ted stars Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis. Giovanni Ribisi, Laura Vandervoort, Patrick Warburton  and Seth Macfarlane. The film is is scheduled for release July 13,2012. Ted is written by Seth MacFarlane, Alec Sulkin, and Wellesley Wild. It is directed by Seth MacFarlane. Ted is rated Restricted (R).

Official Synopsis:

Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane brings his boundary-pushing brand of humor to the big screen for the first time as writer, director and voice star of Ted. In the live action/CG-animated comedy, he tells the story of John Bennett (Mark Wahlberg), a grown man who must deal with the cherished teddy bear who came to life as the result of a childhood wish…and has refused to leave his side ever since.
