Manny the Mammoth Guy Beats Spider-Man! "Ice Age: Continental Drift" No. 1 with $46M! 


Move over Spidey, you've just been snowed! "Ice Age: Continental Drift," the fourth installment of the popular franchise, claimed the No. 1 spot with $46 million. Featuring the voice work of Ray Romano, Queen Latifah, John Leguizamo, and Dennis Leary, "Ice Age" unseated previous weekend's box-office champ, "The Amazing Spider-Man."

The reboot of the Marvel property settled to No. 2. Starring Andrew Garfield as our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man and Emma Stone from director Marc Webb, "The Amazing Spider-Man" captured $35 million for the second spot.

Just like "Spider-Man" which made its debut outside the U.S., "Ice Age: Continental Drift" opened outside the U.S. one week prior to its North American debut. So far, its overseas total added to $339 million. And get this, the "Ice Age" franchise has a combined box-office total of $2.2 billion worldwide!

"Spider-Man" might have fallen 40% from its massive opening, but the reboot has earned more than $200 million domestically. Overseas, "The Amazing Spider-Man" has earned $67 million for a worldwide total of $521.4 million.

Meanwhile, Universal's "Ted" continued to shine! Seth MacFarlane's R-rated comedy starring Mark Wahlberg and a dirty teddy bear made $22.1 million for a third-week total of $159 million.

Another R-rated film that's making big business at the box-office is "Magic Mike" starring Channing Tatum and Matthew McConaughey. The male stripper saga earned $9 million and is inching towards the $100 million mark.

But the good news of the weekend belonged to indie darling "Moonrise Kingdom." From director Wes Anderson, the fantastic film made an additional $3.7 million at just 900+ theaters.
