Seth MacFarlane’s ‘Ted’ to Replace ‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation’ in June

What could possibly fill the gaping, ‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation‘ sized void in our hearts? Universal seems to think we could use a foul-mouthed talking bear, so the studio has snatched up the recently vacated June 29th slot and is filling it with ‘Ted.’

Seth MacFarlane‘s feature directorial debut, which he also wrote, stars Mark Wahlberg as a grown man with a talking teddy bear friend. The bear, voiced by MacFarlane himself, is a crude little pothead that comes to life thanks to Wahlberg’s childhood wish. Mila Kunis co-stars as Wahlberg’s girlfriend.

Deadline reports that Universal has been looking for a way to possibly release the film sooner than its original July 13 release date, thanks to a warm response to trailers on the internet. Looking to capitalize on an extended summer box office, the studio quickly jumped at the chance to take the June 29th spot once it was announced earlier today that Paramount is moving ‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation’ back to March 29, 2013.

Paramount, fearing that the ‘G.I. Joe’ sequel wouldn’t earn enough in international box office, made the decision to delay the film while they post-covert it to 3D — a move which they hope will boost earnings here and overseas.
