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 Scart isn't afraid of Kirk, Spock and King Arthur. Take a look as this prehistoric rodent continues to get his nut!
