Way back in early November, 20th Century Fox released the Ice Age short Cosmic Scrat-Tastrophe. Opening with the release of The Peanuts Movie, it sets up the events that will be seen in the sequel Ice Age: Collision Course. Today, we get a full-length trailer for this upcoming sequel. And guess what? It's just the short shaved down to two and a half minutes. Kind of a rip-off, huh? But still fun none the less!
Scrat journeys where no Ice Age character has gone before in Ice Age: Collision Course. Scrat's epic pursuit of the elusive acorn catapults him into the universe where he accidentally sets off a series of cosmic events that transform and threaten the Ice Age World. To save themselves, Sid, Manny, Diego, and the rest of the herd must leave their home and embark on a quest full of comedy and adventure, traveling to exotic new lands and encountering a host of colorful new characters.
Ice Age: Collision Course, opening in theaters everywhere July 22, 2016. Returning cast members include Ray Romano, Denis Leary, John Leguizamo,Queen Latifah, Seann William Scott, Josh Peck, Simon Pegg, Keke Palmer, Wanda Sykes and Jennifer Lopez. Joining the herd are Stephanie Beatriz, Adam DeVine, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Max Greenfield, Jessie J, Nick Offerman, Melissa Rauch, Michael Strahan and Neil deGrasse Tyson. With the arrival of the trailer, we've also dug the original short film out of the vault so you can see the whole thing!
If this trailer isn't enough for you, we have a poster featuring Scrat and his ol' illusive acorn as they stand proudly in space. This epic one-sheet promises 'one small step' which obviously leads to 'one giant mess'. Scrat's adventures have certainly caused a lot of problems in the past. But this latest blunder could wipe out a whole family favorite franchise!
We still have 9 months to wait for Ice Age: Collision Course, which is sure to be one of summer 2016's biggest hits. The original Ice Age opened in 2002, earning $176.3 million at the domestic box office before going on to earn $383 million worldwide. It was followed by three more sequels, which have taken in more than $700 million. The film will have some strong competition when it opens this July. Arriving on the same day is Star Trek Beyond and Knights of the Round Table, which will both pull in large family audiences. But Scrat isn't afraid of Kirk, Spock and King Arthur. Take a look as this prehistoric rodent continues to get his nut in this first official trailer!
