The biggest new release this week was Seth Macfarlane’s furry follow-up to his debut hit flick, Ted. With a sequel that was providing polarising reviews for folks who either weren’t into Macfarlane’s trademark fratboy humour or people who really wanted to see more Flash Gordon references, Ted 2 debuted in third place over the North American weekend, as Jurassic World and Pixar’s Inside Out held the first and second spots respectively.

With an estimate of $33 million on opening weekend, Ted 2 was way behind the 2012 opening weekend gross of $54.2 million that the original flick made. According to Universal Pictures estimates, Ted 2 was pegged to open the weekend at around $45-$50 million, making this Macfarlane’s second underperforming flick after A Million Ways To Die In The West. Here’s how the rest of the box office did:

Pitch Perfect 2 on the other hand, pitch-slapped its way to a $276.7 international haul, more than doubling the $115.3 million gross of the original 2012 film. Aca-standing!

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
