British Box Office Report: Ted Rises Over The Dark Knight

by at . Comments

Oh, those crazy Brits.

They drive on the left side of the road, they drink A LOT of tea and they prefer foul-mouthed stuffed animals to soul-searching superheros.

Indeed, in its first weekend of release in Great Britain, Ted actually out-earned The Dark Knight Rises... but a wide margin!

The Seth MacFarlane-penned comedy more than doubled the haul of Christopher Nolan's final Batman installment, raking in £9.3 million to 4.3 million for The Dark Knight Rises. (Please don't ask us to convert those pounds to dollars.)

In the Caped Crusader's defense, of course, it had already been open in England for two weeks and has still brought in over £40 million in just 17 days. In the U.S. meanwhile, The Dark Knight Rises remains number-one.

Let's take a look at the top five box office hits in Great Britain from this past weekend:

  1. Ted: £9.3m
  2. The Dark Knight Rises: £4.3m
  3. Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: Dog Days: £1.5m
  4. Ice Age: Continental Drift: £1.2m
  5. Dr Seuss' The Lorax: £856,003

Bruce Wayne: You sound like you're looking forward to it.
Selina Kyle: I'm adaptable.

No one cared who I was, until I put on the mask.
