The green-band trailer for Ted has gone online. Directed by Seth MacFarlane (Family Guy), the movie stars Mark Wahlberg as a 35-year-old man who’s still best friends with his teddy bear, Ted (voiced and mo-capped by Macfarlane), after his childhood wish brought the stuffed animal to life. Now the bear is a foul-mouthed, pot-smoking freeloader who’s creating tension between the guy and the guy’s girlfriend (Mila Kunis). Fans of Macfarlane’s TV shows will note the familiar markers: a Peter Griffin voice for Ted (to the point where it’s kind of distracting), and everyone in the world naturally accepting a supernatural character. I really enjoyed the red-band trailer (I can’t get the “Thunder Song” out of my head), and while this new one isn’t quite as good, there’s a great joke near the end.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The film also stars Joel McHale and Giovanni Ribisi. Ted opens July 13th.

Here’s the official 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.
