Ice Age: Continental Drift

After opening at the top of Italy’s box office this past weekend, Fox’s Ice Age: Continental Drift — also known as Ice Age 4 — now holds the record for the highest-grossing animated movie ever to be released abroad.

A $7.8 million debut at 906 venues in Italy has raised foreign cumulative grosses for the sequel to $693.9 million. Barring the unforeseen, it’ll top the $700 million mark in foreign lands.

Over the weekend, Ice Age: Continental Drift made $8.7 million from 1,055 locations in four overseas countries.

The movie now has had the eighth-largest international release of any film — animated or otherwise — in history.
