Prometheus overtaken at the global box office by a comedy

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?
