Prometheus loses to comedy
Ridley Scott’s epic ‘Prometheus’ could not stop the international supremacy of Seth MacFarlane’s ‘Ted’ which overtook it this week at the box office.
‘Ted’ has become a huge comedy hit, and could be one of the biggest of all time if it continues to gain such a great overseas haul.
This week Fox’s ‘Prometheus’ surpassed the $320 million barrier in global takings putting it high on the top list of international releases. However ‘Ted’, has managed to climb to a whopping $323 million, and that’s not the end of it.
‘Ted’ has so far managed to earn $209 million from the U.S box office, while it’s international takings surpass $113.2 million this week.
Can successful comedies really overtake the biggest blockbusters?
