‘Ice Age’ B.O. in small melt

Turns out “Ice Age: The Meltdown” didn’t set quite as many records as Fox hoped. Estimates pegged the CGI sequel’s opening at $70.5 million, which would have made it the second biggest toon bow ever with a lead of just $32,000 and $248,000, respectively, over “The Incredibles” and “Finding Nemo.” However, when Sunday grosses became available Monday, actual figure came in $2.5 million lower at $68 million. It turned out that “Meltdown” opened substantially bigger than either of those Pixar toons Friday but slowed down as the weekend went on, with a particularly big deficit on Sunday.
