'Ted' wins weekend box office, 'Brave' has staying power
'Ted' earned $54 million this weekend, followed by 'Magic Mike,' at $39 million. 'Brave' came in at No. 3 with $34 million in it's second weekend.
It's both a bear and bull market for Hollywood.
The bear is "Ted," Mark Wahlberg and Seth MacFarlane's comedy for Universal Pictures about a talking teddy bear, which opened as the No. 1 movie with $54.1 million, according to studio estimates Sunday.
The two new movies were backed by a deep bench, with Pixar Animation's Disney fairy tale "Brave" holding up well at No. 3 with $34 million in its second weekend. "Tyler Perry's Madea's Witness Protection," the latest from the dependable breadwinner for Lionsgate Films, opened solidly at No. 4 with $26.4 million.
