Ice Age 4 Drifts Away With Weekend Box Office Victory

by at . Comments

Seeing as it was more or less the only film premiering this Comic-Con weekend, it's not surprise that Ice Age: Continental Drift finished the weekend in first place. That's not to diminish anything form the film's success. The fourth installment of the popular 3D computer animated franchise earned a cool $46 million in its first three days in theaters.

Ted dropped a spot from 2nd to 3rd this weekend, earning $22.1 million. Check out some Ted quotes to see why the Seth MacFarlane comedy has grossed $159 million over its first three weeks.

The Amazing Spider-Man Quotes

Peter? I know things have been difficult lately and I'm sorry about that. I think I know what you're feeling. Ever since you were a little boy, you've been living with so many unresolved things. Well, take it from an old man. Those things send us down a road... they make us who we are. And if anyone's destined for greatness, it's you, son. You owe the world your gifts. You just have to figure out how to use them and know that wherever they take you, we'll always be here. So, come on home, Peter. You're my hero... and I love you!
