It only took a week for ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ to be knocked from the top box office spot, with ‘Ice Afe: Continental Drift’ taking number one during it’s opening weekend.
The fourth film in the ‘Ice Age’ franchise grossed $46 million, with Spider-Man earning #35 million in it’s third week. Mark Wahlberg’s ‘Ted’ is still going strong, earning $22.1 million which was good enough for the third spot.
This should have been foreseen, as “Ice Age” shattered box office records around the world due to a $78 million weekend opening.
The movie boasted the biggest opening weekend ever in Argentina, Colombia, Peru and Chile, and the biggest debut for an animated movie in Norway, Sweden, Ecuador and Bolivia.
All films have been put on notice this week already, that ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ will be released this coming Friday.
