Ice Age Sets Overseas Record
Ice Age Dawn of the Dinosaurs has iced a place for itself in the record books. Over the weekend, 20th Century Fox reported on Wednesday, the movie became the highest-grossing animated feature in history overseas as its gross reached $551.4 million. The previous champ was Pixar's Finding Nemo which grossed $524.9 million in 2003. Ice Age, however, had something going for it that Nemo did not 3D, and that appeared to make the primary difference in overall sales. Many analysts believe that Ice Age may have a short time span at No. 1. Early ticket sales for Disney/Pixar's Up have outpaced those for Ice Age in its first week.
