2015 just got another crazy addition. Seth McFarlane has tweeted that with regards to Ted 2, “We’re aiming for a 2015 Passover release date.” To be more specific, that’s April 3, 2015, but right now, Universal [via ScreenCrush] is only going so far as to say April 2015. April 3rd wouldn’t surprise me considering that the summer movie season no longer has to actually take place anywhere close to the summer. For me, I always considered the start of the season as the first week of May, but with blockbusters now starting to roll out in mid-March, and Captain America: The Winter Soldier taking an April 4, 2014 release date, I can see Ted 2 heading out in April 2015, and avoiding the blockbuster onslaught that will go down in the middle of that year.
Right now, McFarlane is working on A Million Ways to Die in the West, which is due out on May 30, 2014. If Ted 2 keeps the same scale as the first film, then it’s quite possible that McFarlane could make an April 2015 release date for the highly-anticipated comedy.
