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.
