06.12.2012 – The Ice Age series is one of the longest successful animated features in film franchise history continuous in “Ice Age: Continental Drift” which tells us the adventure of Diego, Manny, Sid, with Scrat the ever obsessive "Saber-toothed squirrel" who is too much attached to his acorn.
This obsession also sets a chain of disaster – and suddenly a mountain is torn apart and the earth itself opens up, separating land masses into the seven continents. Scrat hurtles toward the earth’s core, triggering massive earthquakes, which in turn isolates Manny, Diego and Sid from the rest of the herd.
Ice Age’s latest chapter in one of the most successful film franchises of all time brings together the visually epic and the emotionally powerful; the humorous and the heartfelt – plus the world’s most beloved prehistoric squirrel and the ultimate unconventional herd of this or any Age.
Interwoven with these epic tales of family exploits are the continuing adventures of Scrat, whose sole purpose in life – whose very existence – revolves around an acorn as elusive as it is cherished.
Scrat’s quest for the nut has had consequences; in the first “Ice Age” Scrat’s obsession triggered the Ice Age itself. In ICE AGE: CONTINENTAL DRIFT, Scrat and the object of his pursuits are nothing less than the catalyst for a cataclysm. Forget what you’ve learned in geology about the continents forming as a result of massive tectonic turbulence and volcanic eruptions tearing land masses apart.
ICE AGE: CONTINENTAL DRIFT reveals that these seismic shifts came about from Scrat’s misadventures.
The upcoming animated film comes out in cinemas with a Simpsons short attached a sneak peek at Maggie Simpson opening on July 12, 2012 from 20th Century Fox to be available in 2D and 3D format to be distributed by Warner Bros. in Philippine cinemas.
