Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane’s feature directorial debut Ted opens this summer, and we now have our look at the first poster. The film stars Mark Wahlberg as a grown man whose childhood wish that his teddy bear would come to life suddenly comes true. The bear (played by Macfarlane using motion-capture) turns out to be a swearing, pot-smoking wreck who ruins Wahlberg’s life. The film is apparently pretty insane (Wahlberg previously told Steve that it’s incredibly offensive), with Mila Kunis, Joel McHale, Patrick Warburton, and Giovanni Ribisi rounding out the cast. Macfarlane and Wahlberg premiered the first footage from the pic this past weekend at the SXSW Film Festival and handed out the first poster to festivalgoers. We got our hands on one and it’s now included after the jump for your viewing pleasure. As you’ll see, it very much hints at the irreverent tone that’s sure to be on full-display.
Hit the jump to take a gander. A trailer debut for the film should be on the way soon. Ted opens July 13th.
Here’s the synopsis for Ted:
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.
