In Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs, much-loved characters from the worldwide blockbusters Ice Age and Ice Age: The Meltdown are back, on an incredible adventure... for the ages. Scrat is still trying to nab the ever-elusive nut (while, maybe, finding true love); Manny (Ray Romano) and Ellie (Queen Latifah) await the birth of their mini-mammoth, Sid (John Leguizamo) the sloth gets into trouble when he creates his own makeshift family by hijacking some dinosaur eggs; and Diego (Denis Leary) the saber-toothed tiger wonders if he's growing too "soft" hanging with his pals. On a mission to rescue the hapless Sid, the gang ventures into a mysterious underground world, where they have some close encounters with dinosaurs, battle flora and fauna run amuck – and meet a relentless, one-eyed, dino-hunting weasel named Buck.

Summer 2009 has beat every summer movie going season before it to become the highest grossing summer at the domestic box office ever. According to Variety, the box office revenue throughout Sunday has been calculated at $4.17 billion. That is compared to the summer of 2007, which was the previous record holder with $4.16 billion. The Labor Day weekend should add another $100 million to that estimate, which finds summer 2009 up three percent in total grosses.
The three films that helped lead this amazing new record were Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen ($399.4 million), Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince ($294.3 million), and Disney/Pixar's Up ($289.6 million). The grosses were also helped by surprise hits such as The Hangover, which brought in an unexpected $270.2 million, and The Proposal, which pulled in a hefty $160.2 million.Read More
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince dominated the mid-July box office, bringing in an estimated $159.6 million since opening on Wednesday. Over the course of the weekend, the film brought in $79.4 million, but failed to break any single record, most of which are now owned by that giant robot film Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. J.K. Rowling's sixth book still proved to be quite popular on the big screen, as fans secured its place as the 2nd biggest five-day opening for a movie that debuted on a Wednesday. Strong word of mouth will more than likely keep this highly praised sequel afloat through most of August.
Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs stayed in second place this weekend, bringing in another $17.1 million. That brings its cumulative grosses up to $152 million. Pretty hefty, though still not enough to beat its previous two entries in overall earnings. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is still going strong in its fourth week of release. Earning $13.7 million for third place, the film has now earned $363 million domestically, and $746.9 million worldwide. That still only makes it the 13th highest grossing film of all-time, so it has some distance to go before it's at the top of the cinematic dog pile.Read More
With robots in disguise tearing through the box office, it seems they've found a worthy competitor this week. According to Variety, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs topped the Wednesday box office with $13.8 million.
The film opened in 3,998 theaters yesterday and the opening-day mark was quite strong, since it managed to beat out box-office juggernaut Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, which took in $10.9 million for second place. The Michael Bay sequel now stands at $240.9 million at the domestic box office.Read More
