‘Ice Age’ glides to B.O. mark

Fox toon is the second highest-grossing animated film overseas

Continuing to dominate overseas, “Ice Age: Continental Drift” became the second highest-grossing animated release internationally this weekend, reaching $649.4 million.

Fox and Blue Sky Studios have the top-ranking toons: “Drift” predecessor, “Dawn of the Dinosaurs,” set the overseas bar at $690 million.

“Drift” eclipsed Disney-Pixar’s “Toy Story 3” ($648.7 million) internationally by adding a revised $11.1 million to its overseas haul this past weekend.

The Fox toon actually gained ground during its fourth frame in China, collecting $3.8 million locally. And if playability continues elsewhere internationally, the fourth “Ice Age” installment could feasibly catch “Dinosaurs,” especially with Italy to bow Sept. 28.

“Dinosaurs” cumed $887 million worldwide in 2009; “Drift” so far has amassed $800 million globally.

DreamWorks Animation’s “Shrek 2” holds the Stateside record for toons, with $441 million. “Toy Story 3” set the worldwide benchmark in 2010, at $1.06 billion.
