Ice Age Provides Spidey A Cool-Off At The Box Office!



It may be into its fourth installment, but the eclectic animated powerhouse of Sid, Diego, Manny and Scrat continue to pull in the punters. Ending Spidey’s not so amazing reign of one week at the top of the heap, ‘Ice Age: Continental Drift’ scored $46 million. In comparison with its predecessors, it edged the previous ‘Dawn Of The Dinosaurs’ opening salvo of $41.7 million.
