FOX sets a primeval turn on the world’s first Easter egg hunt in the animated special Ice Age: The Great Egg-Scapade. The all-new animation will premiere on March 20, Sunday, (7:30-8:00 PM ET/PT) which will also show an exclusive sneak peek at the new film Ice Age: Collision Course.

Manny, Scrat, Diego, Sid and a few new friends from the Ice Age franchise come back for a funny all-new holiday adventure. The Ice Age: The Great Egg-Scapade follows the story of anxious bird mom Ethel (Taraji P. Henson) hands over her soon-to-hatch egg to Sid (John Leguizamo). When Ethel recommends him to her neighbors Cholly Bear (Gabriel Iglesias), condor mom (Wendy Williams) and Gladys Glypto (Lili Estefan), business develops at his new egg-sitting service. However, Squint (Seth Green), the devious pirate bunny steals, disguises and hides all the eggs. Once more, with the twin brother of Squint, Clint (Blake Anderson) assisting, Diego (Denis Leary), Manny (Ray Romano) and the rest come to the rescue and launch a brave mission that turns into the first ever Easter egg hunt in the world.

Ice Age: The Great Egg-Scapade arrives on Digital HD one day after its broadcast at Google Play, iTunes, Amazon Video, Vudu, Microsoft Movies & TV, Sony Playstation Store and MGo. It is produced by Blue Sky Studios and Twentieth Century Fox Animation. Chris Wedge, Lori Forte and Carlos Saldanha are executive producers. Ricardo Curtis serves as the director while John C. Donkin serves as producer.

The weekend saw Blue Sky Studios’ fan favorite sabertooth rodent grace theaters in a new short, but those of you who missed the CG animated short Cosmic Scrat-Tastrophe can watch from the comfort of your desktop screens (or mobile screens) because 20th Century Fox has just released the short online, no doubt as a way of promoting the next Ice Age installment, Ice Age: Collision Course, well in advance of its July 22, 2016 release.

Cosmic Scrat-Tastrophe follows Scrat as he ventures where no Ice Age character has gone before: Outer Space. It’s common knowledge among fans that Scrat has a tendency to create more trouble than his original intention, and this time he’s trying to create his own version of the Big Bang.

Ice Age: Continental Drift Takes Over Russia

According to the Russian trade publication Film Business Today, the number one film at the Russian box office for 2012 was the Fox/Blue Sky CG blockbuster Ice Age: Continental Drift, which boasted over $50.1 million in ticket sales. The film was a summer release, peaking at No. 14 at the US box office and earning around $163 million locally.

Like the other 3 movies from the Ice Age franchise, Continental Drift didn’t fare well with the critics and the award winning bodies. But we doubt the executives at Fox and Blue Sky care, because the ticket sales – which amounts to $875.3 million globally – proves that the moviegoing public likes the IP.

The other top imports in Russia include DreamWorks’ Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted with $49.4 million, Disney’s The Avengers with $43.68 million and Warner Bros.’ The Hobbit with $26.58 million.

Ice Age 4 Parodies The Dark Knight Rises

Ice Age 4 has just released a short parody that makes fun of the upcoming Warner Bros Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises. Ice Age 4’s version is called “The Dark Nut Rises”, and features Ice Age’s secret weapon, Scrat the Sabretooth Squirrel, as “Scratman”.

This is not the first time the marketing folks at Twentieth Century Fox poked fun at an upcoming blockbuster, since they have already released a parody of The Artist in the past, which also starred Scrat, and is aptly titled “The Scratist”.

Ice Age 4: Continental Drift opens on 13 July 2012. The Dark Knight Rises follows one week later on 20 July 2012.

Ted, Ice Age 4 Enjoy Weekend Box Office Numbers

Seth MacFarlane’s adult CG/live action comedy Ted managed to pull in big numbers at the US box office this past weekend, ending up as the number one release of the weekend due to its estimated $52.5 million opening in a span of three days. The Mark Wahlberg starrer managed to unseat Disney/Pixar’s Brave out of the top spot of the box office chart.

Don’t count Brave out just yet, though – since it continues to bring in good box office numbers, taking in a total of $35.5 million this weekend and scoring a total domestic cume of $132.2 million within 2 weeks at the box office. DreamWorks’ Madagascar 3 is also holding up well in its 4th weekend, with a total of $12.5 million last weekend and a total take of $180.7 in 3715 theaters.

Fox’s Ice Age: Continental Drift, on the other hand, was a huge success even though it has not opened in the US yet. Ice Age: Continental Drift made a killing in overseas territories, with a score of $11 million from its Wednesday and Thursday opening in only 12 of the 37 international markets. According to Fox, the movie is currently the biggest animated opening day of all-time in Sweden and Peru, the 2nd highest opening day for France, Colombia, Argentina and Chile, and Fox’s biggest animated opening day for Central America.

A Mammoth Christmas brings the Ice Age to Fox

You already know it’s the most wonderful time of the year, but did you also hear its the most wonderful time of the … Age? At least, according to Fox! At 9pm on Friday, December 16th, Fox will rebroadcast the new holiday special Ice Age A Mammoth Christmas. The special originally ran at that other holiday, Thanksgiving. But now that turkey day has come and gone, we can focus on the true winter holiday, Christmas. The half hour special starts with the full Ice Age gang, from Manny to Diego, with Sid, of course, causing trouble. This time, however, Sid goes a little too far, and fears he’s been placed on Santa’s naughty list. Faced with the prospect of not receiving any Christmas joy, the sloth makes his way to the North Pole to speak with Santa Claus, himself.

Of course, Sid doesn’t go alone – instead, he brings along Crash and Eddie, and even baby Peaches. And once the rest of the group notices Sid’s team has gone missing, Manny, Ellie, and Diego find their way tracking to the North Pole, as well.

Thanksgiving special Ice Age A Mammoth Christmas

With the Ice Age special hitting November 24th, you can either see the Christmas holiday hitting a few weeks early, or with the Ice Age in mind, a few thousand years late! In either case, be ready for one of the bigger celebrations you’ve ever seen – mammoth in size, even! On Thursday, November 24th, after you’ve filled up with Thanksgiving turkey, head over to Fox at 8pm for Ice Age: A Mammoth Christmas! The special, which helps transition fans to next July’s Ice Age 4 Continental Drift, will feature every regular voice from the franchise. The 26-minute special finds the familiar crew in the middle of decorating for the holiday season, until… well, simply said, “Sid.”

Thanksgiving, and most importantly giving thanks, is certainly the right time for Ice Age A Mammoth Christmas. When Sid accidentally destroys Manny’s favorite decorations, the prehistoric sloth is convinced he’ll be on Santa’s naughty list for the year, leaving him without any presents for Christmas. To undo this terrible situation, Sid decides he must go to the North Pole and plead to Santa Claus, himself, for a second chance.

Further complicating matters, Sid doesn’t go alone – instead, he takes off with the Opossums Crash and Eddie, and Peaches, Manny and Ellie’s daughter. When the group reaches the North Pole, it goes down hill even more, as they accidentally destroy Santa’s Workshop.

If you thought Sid was on the naughty list before…

They will be joined by new (to the series) voice talents Billy Gardell, Ciara Bravo, T.J. Miller, and Judah Friedlander.

New Ice Age Theme Park in 2012

Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products and SimEx-Iwerks, along with European theme park operator Merlin Entertainment is planning to launch a new theme park based on the Ice Age cg-animated movies. The Ice Age theme park will include the ‘Ice Age Dawn of the Dinosaurs, The 4D Experience’ and is scheduled to launch in March 2012 at two of Merlin’s theme park resorts – namely Gardaland in Italy and Alton Towers in the UK, where the parks are slated to open for the season.

The creation of the Ice Age theme park is part of 20th Century Fox’s long-term location-based entertainment rollout for the Ice Age franchise. The Ice Age Dawn of the Dinosaurs The 4D Experience attraction will feature 3D movie footage taken straight out of the third Ice Age movie, and will synchronize it with stunning real time effects, which will provide viewers with the most immersive Ice Age experience technology can provide. The attraction also features mascots, novelty item shops, and there will also be two interactive Ice Age-themed guest rooms at Alton Towers’ Splash Landings Hotel.

The Ice Age theme park is expected to drum up interest for the fourth film in the series, Ice Age: Continental Drift, which is scheduled for a 2012 release.
