“Truly Brilliant!” – Scott Mendelson, The Huffington Post



Take Home the Unrated Edition Of One Of the Top 3 R-Rated Comedies of All Time! Available on Blu-Ray Combo Pack Including UltraViolet, DVD & Digital Copy With Hilarious Deleted Scenes, Alternate Takes, a Gag Reel & More!


Universal City, California, October 10, 2012 – A foul-mouthed, hard-partying teddy bear and his 35-year-old best friend come together in the #1 comedy of the year, Ted, available on Blu-ray™ Combo Pack, DVD and On Demand on December 11, 2012, from Universal Studios Home Entertainment.  Directed by Seth MacFarlane, creator of television’s uproarious and irreverent hits “Family Guy,” and “American Dad,” Ted stars Mark Wahlberg (ContrabandThe Other Guys), Mila Kunis (Friends with BenefitsBlack Swan),  Joel McHale (“Community”), Giovanni Ribisi (Contraband, Avatar) and Seth MacFarlane as the voice of Ted.

The film’s all-star cast also includes “Family Guy” favorites Jessica Barth, Alex Borstein, Ralph Garman and Patrick Warburton, as well as Sam Jones (“Flash Gordon”), Multi-Grammy® Award-winning recording artist Norah Jones and newcomer Brett Manley.  Both the Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD feature an unrated extended version of the film – featuring laugh-out-loud footage not shown in theaters – a gag reel, feature commentary with Seth MacFarlane and Mark Wahlberg and an insider’s look at the making of the funniest buddy picture ever made.  


Ted’s outrageous, off-color antics won the hearts and minds of critics and audiences alike, with Peter Travers of Rolling Stone declaring the movie “hysterically funny” and Trey Alexander of Fandango.com calling it “an instant classic.”  A critically hailed blockbuster that took in more than $218 million in North America alone, Ted is the third highest grossing R-rated comedy of all time and scored the highest debut ever for an original R-rated comedy.  Exclusively on the Ted Blu-ray Combo Pack are bonus features that include deleted scenes, alternate takes and a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of Ted’s already legendary fight scene.


The Ted Blu-ray Combo Pack also includes a Digital Copy of the film, compatible with iPhone®, iTunes®, iPad®, iPod®, iPod®touch, Android or online retail partners, as well as UltraViolet.  UltraViolet™ is the revolutionary new way for consumers to collect movies and TV shows in the cloud to instantly stream and download to tablets, smartphones, computers, and TVs.  Consumers can now truly enjoy Ted anytime, anywhere on the device of their choice.
