It’s Quite Possible We’ll Be Seeing a Ted 3 at Some Point

It has been four years since ‘Ted 2’ was released, and fans of this film and its predecessor have had quite a wait to see if a third film is being added to the series. Recently, the debate over a possible third film has come back into the limelight thanks to comments by Mark Wahlberg that indicate a ‘Ted 3’ is potentially in the pipeline. The original Ted movie was released back in 2012. This live-action/ adult animated comedy film was created by Seth McFarlane, who co-wrote the script, directed the film, acted as a co-producer, ad provided the voice

Will We Ever Get Ted 3?

Will We Ever Get Ted 3?
We recently passed along word that The Orville and A Million Ways to Die in the West star Seth MacFarlane still plans to make a theatrical movie based on his hit animated series Family Guy. But what about a possible third entry in the beloved Ted series co-starring Mark Wahlberg? Well, today we have word that MacFarlane would absolutely be open to Ted 3!

Seth MacFarlane says this.

"I would absolutely be open to it. I had a ball doing those movies.I mean the Ted movies were a blast. Wahlberg was a blast. I had great fun doing that. I don't know... It's hard with a sequel past a certain number of years."

While I was unsure if the world needs a theatrical movie based on MacFarlane's animated series Family Guy, I can say without a doubt that I think a third film in the Ted saga is just what the doctor ordered.

Podtalk: Actor Tom Skerritt at 7th Chicago Critics Film Festival

Chicago – One of the great movie character actors is hale and hearty at age 85. Tom Skerritt has over 50 years of roles, and has appeared in such film classics as “M*A*S*H,” “Harold and Maude,” “Up in Smoke,” “Top Gun” and “Steel Magnolias.” Skerritt was at the 7th Chicago Critics Film Festival for the 40th Anniversary of “Alien.”

Thomas Roy Skerritt was born in Detroit, and after the Air Force and college developed a fascination for acting. He made his film debut in “War Hunt” (1962), which was also the debut for Robert Redford, who would later direct Skerritt in “A River Runs Through It” (1992). He spent most of the 1960s doing episodic TV, and began to get film notice around the time of “M*A*S*H” (1970), where he portrayed a southern doctor named Duke, as well as a small-but-crucial appearance in “Harold and Maude” (1971).

Cannes: Matt Walsh, Isla Fisher to Star in ‘Unplugging’
Matt Walsh and Isla Fisher will star in “Unplugging,” a comedy about a couple who try to recapture their romance by taking a vacation in a rural town. They hope that unplugging from social media and electronics will force them to reconnect with each other and will save their marriage.

How Seth MacFarlane Made an Empire Spanning TV, Film, Music

How Seth MacFarlane Made an Empire Spanning TV, Film, Music
“The empire is accidental,” says Seth MacFarlane as he sits atop the sort of rarefied showbiz kingdom — television shows, movies, acting roles, musical albums, merchandise — that only a handful of entertainment industry titans such as George Lucas and Walt Disney have known.

MacFarlane, who is set to receive a star April 23 on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, says there was never a plan to build such a legacy, only to work on things that make him happy.

“I think you’ll be surprised by some of the ideas and the things that he’s excited about,” says Erica Huggins, the president of MacFarlane’s production company Fuzzy Door. She expects the company’s future to potentially include dramas, remakes, podcasts — plus content from other creators who excite her boss. “The best way to describe the kind of genius that Seth has is that he sees it in the full picture.

‘Us’ Cements the Box Office Power of Jordan Peele

‘Us’ Cements the Box Office Power of Jordan Peele
Given the breakout success of “Get Out,” it’s no surprise audiences were salivating to see the next nightmare from the mind of writer-director Jordan Peele.

Get Out,” which landed a screenwriting Oscar for Peele, became one of the most profitable movies of 2017 (grossing $255 million globally on a $4.5 million budget) after the horror film captured the zeitgeist with its exploration of race relations in America. Even with the sky-high expectations set for “Us,” the filmmaker’s second directorial effort, few predicted just how many moviegoers had boarded the Jordan Peele train.

“Us,” a psychological thriller about a family confronted by their doppelgangers, put industry projections to shame when it debuted to a massive $70 million in North America, nearly doubling forecasts heading into the weekend. The studio and tracking services predicted it would net a three-day total in the $38 million to $45 million range. “Us” now boasts the second-best debut of the

Box Office: Jordan Peele’s ‘Us’ Stuns With $70 Million Opening Weekend

Box Office: Jordan Peele’s ‘Us’ Stuns With $70 Million Opening Weekend
Talk about scary good.

Universal’s “Us,” the second directorial effort from Jordan Peele, pulled off a stunning debut, generating $70 million from 3,741 North American locations. That haul is enough to land it the second-best opening weekend of the year behind Disney’s “Captain Marvel” ($153 million). The psychological thriller about a family confronted by a band of doppelgangers nearly doubled projections, which estimated a three-day total in the $38 million to $45 million range.

“Us” now has the largest weekend for an original horror movie, surpassing “A Quiet Place,” as well as the biggest launch for an original R-rated film behind “Ted.” It also shattered the benchmark set by Peele’s directorial debut “Get Out,” which launched with $33 million in 2017.

Overseas, “Us” launched with $16.7 million from 47 international territories for a global start of $86.95 million. That number is all the more impressive considering Universal and Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions spent a modest $20 million to make “Us,

Jordan Peele's 'Us' Delivers a Mind-Blowing $70 Million Debut

Jordan Peele's 'Us' Delivers a Mind-Blowing $70 Million Debut
Universal's release of Jordan Peele's Us dominated the domestic box office, not only out-performing the opening weekends for several recent horror hits, but delivering the second largest opening ever for a live-action, original picture, topping the weekend box office with over $70 million. As a result, the 2019 box office continues to improve over the month of March after struggling to begin the year. Overall, this weekend was the third straight to outperform the same weekend last year. At #1, with an estimated $70.25 million (~49.6% of all tickets sold among the top 12 films), Us topped the weekend box office with the third largest opening of all-time for an R-rated horror film, blowing away 2018's The Nun ($53.8m opening) and placing behind Universal's own Halloween, which opened with $76.2 million last October. The film also decimated the opening for Peele's previous film Get Out, which was a massive hit back in 2017 following a $33.3 million debut.

Box Office: ‘Us’ on Track for Second-Highest Debut of 2019 With $67 Million
Jordan Peele’s “Us” is on its way to scaring up one of the biggest debuts of 2019, with an estimated $67 million from 3,741 North American locations.

Should estimates hold, “Us” will be able to claim several milestones: the highest debut for an original horror movie (the biggest launch for any horror pic goes to 2017’s “It” with $123 million); the largest debut for an R-rated movie (topping “Ted” with $54.4 million); the second-highest debut of 2019 after “Captain Marvel”; and the third-highest opening day for a horror film with $29 million.

The current projection is above earlier estimates, which had placed it in the $38 million to $50 million range, and marks quite a leg up over Peele’s last film, “Get Out.” That horror pic debuted to $33 million in 2017 and eventually amassed $167 million Stateside.

Lady Gaga isn’t the first performer in a film to compete for a Best Song Oscar — some have even won

Lady Gaga isn’t the first performer in a film to compete for a Best Song Oscar — some have even won
Can we agree that among the eight Oscar nominations granted “A Star Is Born,” its likeliest win will be Best Song for “Shallow”? That soaring ballad sold the music-packed showbiz saga’s first trailer like nobody’s business as Lady Gaga‘s Ally started to roar before a mic. The pop chanteuse herself would receive the honor alongside her co-writers Mark Ronson, Anthony Rossomando and Andrew Wyatt. The song has already won a Golden Globe and is up for four Grammys, including Record of the Year and Song of the Year.

Judging by the combined odds chart based on rankings by Experts, Editors and Users, “Shallow’s” support is quite deep, with more than 2,200 predicting it will win.

Songs that bring home the Academy Award usually benefit from actually being performed onscreen and not just heard, and Gaga and Bradley Cooper do a mesmerizing job of selling this tune. But

Oscar Flashback: Best Original Songs of the early 2010s, including ‘Skyfall,’ ‘Let It Go’
This article marks Part 25 of the Gold Derby series analyzing 84 years of Best Original Song at the Oscars. Join us as we look back at the timeless tunes recognized in this category, the results of each race and the overall rankings of the winners.

The 2010 Oscar nominees in Best Original Song were:

“Coming Home” from “Country Strong”

“If I Rise” from “127 Hours

“I See the Light” from “Tangled

We Belong Together” from “Toy Story 3

Won: “We Belong Together” from “Toy Story 3

Should’ve won: “If I Rise” from “127 Hours

Best Original Song in 2010 marked one of the most deadly-dull line-ups to ever grace the category, a sleepy, entirely unremarkable batch of four songs that is exceedingly difficult to select a favorite among.

Voters, faced with this anemic foursome, opted to go with Oscar mainstay Randy Newman, awarding him a second Best Original Song prize, this time for “We Belong Together.

‘Instant Family’ Review: The Best Mark Wahlberg Movie in a Very Long Time
From “Lone Survivor” and “Deepwater Horizon,” to “Patriot’s Day” and “The Perfect Storm,” Mark Wahlberg devoted the last decade of his career to a hoo-rah brand of heroic nonfiction (it’s always tempting to trace this career pivot back to the actor’s useless claim that he could have stopped the hijackers on 9/11). But the 47-year-old star, ever the savvy businessman, has also hit upon a lucrative side hustle: blockbuster comedies. Low-key funny in earlier films like “Date Night” and “I Heart Huckabees,” Wahlberg parlayed that aspect of his persona into mega-hits like “Ted,” “Ted 2,” “Daddy’s Home,” and — wait for it — “Daddy’s Home 2”.

In hindsight, it was a matter of time before the actor decided to mesh his two favorite modes into a single movie: A broad comedy about Mark Wahlberg rescuing people from a real-life hardship. Yikes. While that prospect sounds terrifying on paper, not
