“A Look Back” is a series of posts we here at Caughtonset.com feature weekly. It’s as simple as the title makes it sound. Each Friday we will take “A Look Back” to the set of a newly released film. Look at pictures from the set today, then watch the movie tonight.
This week we take a look back at the making of Ice Age: Continental Drift. The latest animated film to hit theaters this summer has a familiar look to it. This will be the fourth installment of the Ice Age franchise and I bet Fox is hoping the upward trend continues. According to Ray Subers at Boxofficemojo.com:
"This is only the second significant animated franchise to reach a fourth installment following the Shrek series, and each subsequent chapter has been more successful than the previous one for Ice Age. The most recent entry, 2009's Dawn of the Dinosaurs, earned a very good $196.6 million domestically while setting a foreign animated record with an outstanding $690.1 million haul. It was also well-liked for the most part, scoring a 7.0 rating on IMDb."
I'm not really a fan of the Ice Age franchise so far. Perhaps all of the added voice talent will make this installment the best yet. If you go see this movie, you can expect to hear the voices of Ray Romano, Denis Leary, John Leguizamo, Aziz Ansari, Joy Behar, Peter Dinklage, Nick Frost, Josh Gad, Jennifer Lopez, Drake, Keke Palmer and Queen Latifah. Just to name a few.
