‘Family Guy’s producer Seth MacFarlane took over the box office with his comedy ‘Ted’ with $54.1 million dollars. The story of the not so adorable teddy bear and his owner Mark Wahlberg, certainly is worth a peek as many would agree. This is the third best debut for an R-rated comedy, ever!
Channing Tatum’s ‘Magic Mike’ premiered at number two with $39.2 million dollars; this R-rated dramedy sure dragged plenty of ladies to the theaters this weekend. The film takes viewers into the world of male stripping, which is not as glittery as one might expect.
Surprisingly, ‘Brave’ dropped two spots to number three with $34 million dollars. Apparently the adults decided to leave the kids at home this weekend and give themselves a treat with the top two R-rated films of the box office.
