‘Ted 2’ Is Coming Summer of 2015

Ted 2 set for a summer 2015 release Universal Pictures has announced a June 26, 2015 release date for Ted 2. The comedy sequel currently doesn't have any competition as of yet, but it falls just between Disney's Inside Out on June 19 and Paramount's Terminator 5 on July 1.

Writer-director Seth MacFarlane revealed in August that he was aiming for a Passover 2015 release date, which would have been April 3, 2015. Since the original Ted was the highest-grossing R-rated comedy in history, taking in $394 million worldwide, the summer release date makes more sense than a spring debut.

Mark Wahlberg is returning to star as John Bennett, with Seth MacFarlane providing the voice of his talking teddy bear, Ted. Seth MacFarlane is directing from a screenplay he co-wrote with Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild.

No story details have been confirmed as of yet. It is believed that production will begin next summer, after Seth MacFarlane's Western comedy A Million Ways to Die in the West is released.

Ted 2 was released June 26th, 2015.

      @undeadslayer4 Well ya I love those films. The sardonic deconstruction of the super hero genre always has my attention but aside from that, your right. She was great in those. I mean I didn't even know who she was until Kick Ass 1 came out.

            @undeadslayer4 Yes that was his first novel. I am not a fan of Carrie though. Never have been. I am giving the Chloe Moretz film a chance just for her and Moore but I don't have high hopes.

                @undeadslayer4 The Shining was Stephen King's 4th novel I believe. I know it was one of his first 5 novels. Back when he was good at what he did...before he became so famous that he knew no matter what drivel he turned out people would flock too.

                But ya the short answer is its based on a great book.

                    Oh good. The oh so great Seth MacFarlane is making a sequel to his presious Ted, and I still don't give a crap.

                      @undeadslayer4 funny you should mention the Shining. I am currently reading the novel (which I had read before many many years ago - but felt like revisiting the novel). It is much better than the movie from Kubrik (which is brilliant IMO. They are just two different beasts.

                            2015 will be insane for movies. I think they should just end the series after Ted 2. Seth should keep giving us original things!

                                The first one felt pretty complete....but Hollywood yet again is squeezing every thing until it's losing it's taste and becomes sorrow.

                                      @undeadslayer4 We are both pretty heavy in GoT, both the books and the series but we gave up on Dexter a few seasons back.
