Mila Kunis’ “Ted” comedy beats “Dark Knight Rises” in foreign box office

PanARMENIAN.Net - Of course a foul-mouthed teddy bear would translate internationally since it’s a beloved global plush toy. Still, MRC/Universal’s Ted is already open in 10 international territories and was #1 in almost every territory including an outstanding run in Australia, Deadline said.

Now Universal opens it in 10 more markets this weekend and it’s already topping the foreign box office with big grosses in Germany and Russia plus previews in the UK. There, the Seth MacFarlane/Mark Wahlberg starrer has been #1 for two days of $5.3M previews, besting Warner Bros’ and Legendary Pictures’ third weekend of The Dark Knight Rises.

Universal has planned the widest-ever release for Ted’s official opening in the UK and Ireland. In Germany, Ted opened #1 on its first day ahead of TDKR and grossed $1.2M on Thursday August 2, a 2012 record best for Universal in this market.

In Russia, Ted had a record-breaking start as well, opening Thursday with $1.4M as the #1 film ahead of TDKR. This is a record for a Hollywood comedy. Ted’s international total has risen to $54.5M in just 20 territories, and Universal has 38 openings yet to release in the next few months.
