The first Ice Age flick was one of the most entertaining entries in the CGI animated, Pixar inspired series of films that followed Toy Story. It didn’t have a lead character as recognisable as Shrek, but what it did have was a sweet core message and a satisfying focus on slapstick – thanks to the inspired Scrat. Used sparingly until now, he remains the most entertaining thing in a franchise now struggling for any semblance of originality.
Ice Age: Continental Drift will have its premiere on June 20, 2012, at the CineEurope film distributors’ trade fair in Barcelona. It will publicly premiere on June 27, 2012, in Belgium, and will be released on July 13, 2012, in the USA. The film will be accompanied by the short animated film The Longest Daycare featuring Maggie Simpson.
