The creator of Family Guy making a live-action movie about a foul-mouthed teddy is definitely a delicious prospect, and it’ll be a reality when Ted hits UK cinemas on August 3rd. However before then Director Seth MacFarlane brought his feature directorial debut to SXSW for a sneak peek and Q&A session a few days ago.
A poster promoting the event was given away at the Austin, Texas film festival featuring Mark Wahlberg and the title teddy bear character, voiced by MacFarlane, taking a break at the urinals. You can see it above.
Ted revolves around an average Boston guy (Wahlberg) who, when he was young, was granted his dearest wish, that his teddy bear would come to life. Years later the teddy is still his best friend, but the relationship has become strained as rather than being a sweet and nice Care Bears type creature, Ted is a carousing, irresponsible, womanising, pot-smoking slacker, who is getting in the way of his buddy committing to adulthood and the girl he loves.
