Box Office Numbers: Brave defeaTED at the box office


Family Guy mastermind Seth MacFarlane’s directorial film debut, Ted, has done beary well at the box office, raking in over $54m on its way to its #1 spot for the weekend. Ted was one of the first films I began tracking when Flixist was born, and it’s good to see that it’s performing well. I haven’t had a chance to see it yet, but I’m dedicating some time during my off days to check it out. I’m excited to see just how well the “MacFarlane” humor translates to a live-action feature length film.

The rest of the box office is below.
