First Look: Mark Wahlberg & His Bear Get Ready to Dive in 'Ted 2'
Mostly because the special effects on the film are still being done, we haven't yet seen any real first look photos from the forthcoming sequel Ted 2. There was a trailer that leaked briefly awhile back, but it was chock full of unfinished visual effects shots and it was taken down very quickly. However, we finally have the first official photo from the comedy that made it on our list of the 20 Most Anticipated Movies of 2015. This time Morgan Freeman is coming along for some fun as a high profile civil rights lawyer, though we don't see him in this first look photo. Instead, it's Mark Wahlberg and the title bear getting ready to dive.
Here's the first look at Seth MacFarlane's Ted 2 from Entertainment Weekly:
You can check out another photo that Mark Wahlberg posted from the set of Ted 2 right here.
Ted 2 is directed by Seth MacFarlane, who also voices the title teddy bear, with a script he co-wrote with Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild (writers of MacFarlane's previous directing efforts Ted and A Million Ways to Die in the West). Plot details haven't been revealed, but part of the story will focus on Ted fighting in court for the right to have a child with his human girlfriend. Morgan Freeman helps him out as an iconic civil rights lawyer, and the film also brings back Mark Wahlberg in the lead with Amanda Seyfried taking the female lead. Liam Neeson and John Slattery also pop up in the film Universal releases June 26th, 2015.

Kind of an odd thing to use as the first promo - is it about diving or something? Why else pick that particular shot? Ted looks funny in his little diving outfit though I guess.

I's a perfect photo, especially if you seen the first one. Mark Whalberg sold that movie, as well as this picture!, but the movie is really just about their friendship.

TED was such a surprise for me. A MILLION WAYS was such a let down. Expectations in check for this TED 2.

A Million Ways was a weird movie. I'd be enjoying it, then Macfarlane would take it waaaaay too far with the dick jokes. At times it was very cleverly written, then all that would be thrown out the window for something a 12 year old would find funny.
