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.
