Super Bowl Sunday is upon us, with fans on the West Coast, East Coast and everywhere in between, gearing up for the big game between the defending champion Seattle Seahawks and the New England Patriots. Who will win the big game? Who cares! Even if it is the best game in the history of organized sports, many won't be tuning in for Super Bowl Xlix itself, but for the ads that will be airing throughout the day, some of which will give us new footage from several highly-anticipated movies. To help you cut through all the clutter, we have all of the movie-related Super Bowl ads for you right here in one place for your convenience. Some of the ads have already debuted well before the game, which you can check out right now, but keep refreshing throughout the weekend as more trailers debut before and during Super Bowl Xlix. »
Seth Macfarlane’s A Million Ways To Die In The West, may have underperformed in the eyes of audiences and critics. However, the hilariously opinionated and outspoken star still struck gold with his 2012 smash hit comedy behemoth, Ted. After Universal Studios received over ten times the budget of their R rated production in ticket sales, it came as little surprise to learn that Ted 2 was on the horizon.
Not only did the original film manage to make Mark Wahlberg an A-list, household name, but it also effectively demonstrated that Macfarlane’s crude comedy style can translate to the big screen with ease. With Family Guy, American Dad and… *ahem* The Cleveland Show , all proving that their is indeed a huge market for this particular brand of humour, it seems strange that it has taken this long for Macfarlane to make the jump to the big screen.
With that in mind, »

Following the arrival of a poster yesterday [check it out here], the first trailer for Seth MacFarlane’s hotly-anticipated comedy sequel Ted 2 has been released. Enjoy the trailer in all its glory here, along with three stills from the film…
Ted 2 sees Mark Wahlberg reprising the role of John Bennett with MacFarlane lending his voice once again to Ted and Jessica Barth, Patrick Warburton and Sam Jones all back. Joining the returning cast are MacFarlane’s A Million Ways to Die in the West co-stars Amanda Seyfried and Liam Neeson, alongside Morgan Freeman (The Dark Knight Trilogy), Dennis Haysbert (24), Michael Dorn (Star Trek: The Next Generation), Richard Schiff (The West Wing), Martin Klebba (Scrubs) and John Slattery (Mad Men).
Ted 2 is released in the Us on June 26th, with a UK release on July 10th.

As if the first poster doesn’t tell you enough about what you’ll be getting from the next Ted movie, the trailer will surely do the trick.
Back with even more foul-mouthed, potty-fueled humor as before, the first trailer for Ted 2 dropped on Thursday with the talking bear (voiced by Seth MacFarlane) looking to have children. The cast also includes the return of Mark Wahlberg and Patrick Warburton and the additions of Amanda Seyfried and Morgan Freeman.
The trailer looks about the same as the last film with Ted saying highly inappropriate stuff while Wahlberg works off of it. MacFarlane is in need of a hit though as his last film, A Million Ways to Die In The West, bombed at the box office last year. Now it seems like he will dive into a pool that he knows has worked in the past and hope to come back up with another hit. »

Reuniting The Gambler star Mark Wahlberg with his pint-sized companion, the clip sees the thunder buddies in a spot of legal bother with Ted having to prove his credentials as human by providing a valuable contribution to society (okay, stop sniggering at the back). Such a predicament will see the dynamic, foul-mouthed duo encounter Morgan Freeman’s sharp-suited lawyer and Amanda Seyfried’s Samantha Lesley Jackson — cue the comparisons to a certain other Samuel L. Jackson.
It’s the latter star who will also turn out to be a love interest for Wahlberg’s John Bennett — in lieu of Mila Kunis — while Ted encounters relationship quandaries of his own when he and his new wife make plans to have a baby. Interestingly, Liam Nesson is absent from this newly-released trailer, »

I feel as if I was one of the few that didn't really like Seth MacFarlane's Ted, a film that wore out its welcome about 30 minutes in and continued for another 76. Now, thanks to everyone that disagreed with me the foul-mouthed anthropomorphic teddy bear is back in Ted 2 and the first trailer has just dropped, promising more of the same as semen is spilled on the floor and into Mark Wahlberg's eyes... hardy, har, har. Joining Wahlberg with MacFarlane again providing the voice of the titular Ted are Amanda Seyfried, Mila Kunis, Patrick Warburton, Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson, Jessica Barth and Dennis Haysbert. Apparently the plot will revolve around Ted getting married and wanting to start a family, thus you get into a situation where there's a need for a sperm donor and then Ted needs to prove he's a "person". Apparently Tom Brady, quarterback of the New England Patriots, »

Following the first photo released in December and the poster that debuted just a few days ago, Universal Pictures has finally released the first trailer for Ted 2, which debuted on the official website LegalizeTed.com. Mark Wahlberg reprises his role as John Bennett from Ted, which set box office records in 2012 as the highest-grossing original R-rated comedy in cinematic history. Also back for more R-rated debauchery are Seth MacFarlane, who writes, directs, produces and provides the voice of Ted, alongside Mila Kunis, Patrick Warburton and Jessica Barth.
The sequel also features a slew of new cast members including Amanda Seyfried as John's new love interest and Morgan Freeman, Dennis Haysbert and Liam Neeson. Very little is known about the story, but it is poised to be another box office hit this June. This time out, Ted is getting married and needs his best friend John to supply the sperm for his bride's new baby. »
The first trailer for Ted 2 will be online this Thursday at 9Am Pst and Universal is teasing you with the stupidity to come with this first teaser poster, which pretty much tells us what's in store. The sequel to the 2012 comedy about a talking teddy bear voiced by Seth MacFarlane hits theaters on June 26 and stars Mark Wahlberg, Amanda Seyfried, Mila Kunis, Patrick Warburton, Morgan Freeman and Dennis Haysbert. »

Ahead of the first trailer on Thursday, Universal Pictures and Fuzzy Door Productions have unveiled the first teaser poster for their summer blockbuster comedy Ted 2, which you can see it in all its fuzzy glory below.
The sequel to the hit 2012 comedy, which is still the highest grossing R-rated comedy of all time with a worldwide gross of almost $550 million, sees Seth MacFarlane returning to co-write and direct the film, as well as starring once again as the titular, CGI teddy-bear.

Yahoo Movies has debuted the first poster for Ted 2, along with news that the first trailer will debut Thursday, January 29. The trailer will debut on the new official website LegalizeTed.com.

This is a show that, similar to Disney’s Wreck It Ralph, asks the question, “What do video game characters do outside of the video game?” Unlike the film however, this series focuses on an average family of video game characters known as the Smashenburns. The family is made up of father Rip, a Grand Prix race car driver from an unspecified racing game, mother Raquel, a Lara Croft type from an artifact scavenging adventure game, daughter Alice, who is an activist that sometimes goes boy-crazy, son Billy, who is trend-obsessed with becoming a rapper, and lastly Turbo, their talking purple »
