Ted 2 fails to top US Box Office
Seth MacFarlane's sequel Ted 2 about a foul-mouthed teddy bear, failed to top the US box office this weekend, opening in third place behind animated movie Inside Out and last week's box office topper, Jurassic World.
Ted 2 took $32.9m (£20.9m) at the box office. Pixar animated movie Inside Out was in second place, pulling in $52.1m while Jurassic World again topped the box office taking in another $54.2m in its third week of release.
It is now the first film to earn $500m in the US in 2015.
“You have to remember that no one expected Ted to do what it did,” Nicholas Carpou of studio Universal told the Hollywood Reporter. “So for Ted 2 to do $33m in a very crowded weekend isn’t bad. And we have a very good chance of playing out. Ted 2 will be a successful film for us.”
