Written and directed by Seth MacFarlane, Ted 2 is Universal Pictures and Media Rights Capital’s follow-up to the highest-grossing original R-rated comedy of all time.

That’s Jim Carrey’s biggest opening weekend since 2003’s Bruce Almighty, which opened with $68 million over Memorial Day, and it’s the Farrelly Brothers’ biggest opening ever, grossing more in its first three days than a few of their recent movies have grossed in total.
