Universal City, California, October 10, 2012 – A foul-mouthed, hard-partying teddy bear and his 35-year-old best friend come together in the #1 comedy of the year, Ted, available on Blu-ray™ Combo Pack, DVD and On Demand on December 11, 2012, from Universal Studios Home Entertainment.  Directed by Seth MacFarlane, creator of television’s uproarious and irreverent hits “Family Guy, and “American Dad,” Ted stars Mark Wahlberg (ContrabandThe Other Guys), Mila Kunis (Friends with BenefitsBlack Swan),  Joel McHale (“Community”), Giovanni Ribisi (Contraband, Avatar) and Seth MacFarlane as the voice of Ted.

The film’s all-star cast also includes “Family Guy” favorites Jessica Barth, Alex Borstein, Ralph Garman and Patrick Warburton, as well as Sam Jones (“Flash Gordon”), Multi-Grammy® Award-winning recording artist Norah Jones and newcomer Brett Manley.  Both the Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD feature an unrated extended version of the film – featuring laugh-out-loud footage not shown in theaters – a gag reel, feature commentary with Seth MacFarlane and Mark Wahlberg and an insider’s look at the making of the funniest buddy picture ever made.

Ted’s outrageous, off-color antics won the hearts and minds of critics and audiences alike, with Peter Travers of Rolling Stone declaring the movie “hysterically funny” and Trey Alexander of Fandango.com calling it “an instant classic.”  A critically hailed blockbuster that took in more than $218 million in North America alone, Ted is the third highest grossing R-rated comedy of all time and scored the highest debut ever for an original R-rated comedy.  Exclusively on the Ted Blu-ray Combo Pack are bonus features that include deleted scenes, alternate takes and a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of Ted’s already legendary fight scene.

SYNOPSIS

Clyde (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and Stephanie Brenek (Kyra Sedgwick) see little cause for alarm when their youngest daughter Em becomes oddly obsessed with an antique wooden box she purchased at a yard sale. But as Em’s behavior becomes increasingly erratic, the couple fears the presence of a malevolent force in their midst, only to discover that the box was built to contain a Dibbuk, a dislocated spirit that inhabits and ultimately devours its human host.

“PITCH PERFECT” Official Music Video (contest)


NEWS RELEASE

UNIVERSAL PICTURES SEEKS NEW TALENT FOR ITS OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO COVERING “STARSHIPS”

FOR THE UPCOMING FILM PITCH PERFECT

Fans Have a Chance to Star alongside the New Musical Comedy’s Cast and Internet Music Sensation Mike Tompkins in a Cover of the Nicki Minaj Hit

UNIVERSAL CITY, CA, August 8, 2012—Universal Pictures announced today that it has begun the search for new talent to appear in “Starships,” the official music video for Pitch Perfect, the studio’s upcoming musical comedy that hits theaters on October 5.  With the chance to join the film’s cast and Internet music sensation Mike Tompkins in the video, amateur musicians and dancers are encouraged to submit their best vocals; signature moves; beatbox; and/or guitar, bass, synth and back-up sounds to accompany this cover of Nicki Minaj’s worldwide smash.

With multiple options for participation, fans may submit their entries at www.pitchperfectmovie.com/musicvideo.  Those selected for the project will have their video showcased on both the Blu-ray DVD of Pitch Perfect and Tomkins’ YouTube channel, which currently has more than 550,000 subscribers.

Pitch Perfect celebrates everyone out there who is following his or her true passion,” said the film’s director, Jason Moore.  “Mike Tompkins embodies passion for music, and we’re thrilled to be able to partner with him on this project.  I can’t wait to watch the undiscovered talent that I know we’ll find.”

“When Universal approached me with the idea to make a video for Pitch Perfect, I knew it would be a fun partnership,” noted Tompkins.  “Making music has driven me since I was a kid, and I know there are many others out there who love it as much as I do.  I’m looking forward to seeing what we are able to create together.”

This is the first time Tompkins has collaborated with filmmakers, talent and a studio on the official music video for a movie.  Tompkins, represented by Maker Studios—a next-generation talent-first music company—is best known for creating his own unique twist on music covers using only his voice and mouth.  As his popularity rose, he was noticed by some of the biggest names in entertainment and has since collaborated as a producer and writer with Timbaland and been featured on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, NBC’s TODAY show and PerezHilton.com, among others.  Tompkins and Alana Da Fonseca arranged this new a cappella version of “Starships,” which was written by Nicki Minaj, RedOne, Carl Falk, Rami Yacoub and Wayne Hector.

All submissions must be received by August 22, 2012.  Please visit www.pitchperfectmovie.com/musicvideo for entry details and terms and conditions.

About Pitch Perfect

Beca (Anna Kendrick) is that girl who’d rather listen to what’s coming out of her headphones than what’s coming out of you.  Arriving at her new college, she finds herself not right for any clique but somehow is muscled into one that she never would have picked on her own: alongside mean girls, sweet girls and weird girls whose only thing in common is how good they sound when they sing together, in the new out-loud comedy Pitch Perfect.

When Beca takes this acoustic singing group out of their world of traditional arrangements and perfect harmonies into all-new mash-ups, they fight to climb their way to the top of the cutthroat world of college music competitions.  This could wind up either the coolest thing they’ll ever do or the most insane, and it will probably be a little of both.

Loaded with new takes on old favorites to hits of right now that are seamlessly mixed together, mashed-up and arranged like you’ve never heard before, Pitch Perfect is directed by Jason Moore, who opened our eyes to the very misbehaved life of puppets in the surprise Broadway sensation Avenue Q.  www.pitchperfectmovie.com

ABOUT THE FILM

Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the evil Capitol of the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games.  A twisted punishment for a past uprising and an ongoing government intimidation tactic, The Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains.

Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy.  If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.
