Ice Age: Collision Course

Three of the top 10 grossing films this past weekend were animated, with Universal/Illumination’s The Secret Life of Pets continuing its strong showing at the box office, taking the number 2 spot with $29.6 million in ticket sales for its third week of release, bringing its cumulative total to $260.98 million. Pets came in behind Star Trek Beyond, the latest feature in the venerable sci-fi franchise, which took in $59.25 million in its premiere weekend. However, 20th Century Fox’s Ice Age: Collision Course grossed a disappointing $21.37 million and a fourth-place finish in its premiere weekend; it is the first time that any Ice Age movie has grossed less than $41 million domestically in its premiere weekend. Finally, Disney/Pixar’s Finding Dory took the #6 spot in the box office race with $7.2 million in ticket sales to bring its cumulative total to $460.2 million (and the #9 spot on the list of top domestic box office grosses).

Last pup of a dying planet, a young German Shepherd is rocketed to Earth, where he is bombarded by cosmic gamma rays emitted by a radioactive spider. Crash-landing in the forgotten land of Hubba Hubba, he is discovered by the Who-You-Callin'-Ancient One and his lovely wife Pookie. Instilled with their traditional American values, he spends his young adulthood roaming the globe, learning all the secrets of Comic-Fu. Donning battle armor fashioned from spilled chemicals splashed by lightning, he becomes the Sensational Shield of Sequential Art ACE THE BATHOUND! Look, it sounds a lot better than the truth. Born in Brooklyn, moved to Queens at 3 and then New Jersey at 10. Throughout high school, college, grad school, and gainful employment, two things have remained constant: 1) I am a colossal nerd, and 2) I have spent far too much time reading comics, and then reading and writing about them. Currently working as a financial programmer in New York City, while continuing to discover all the wonderful little surprises (and expenses) of owning your a home in the suburbs. Shares the above with a beautiful, wonderful, and incredibly understanding wife named Frances (who, thankfully, participates in most of my silly hobbies) and a large furry dog named Brownie (who, sadly, does not).
