The best news about the trailer for Ice Age: Collision Course is that it appears we’ll finally see the death of these tired characters. Look, Liked the first Ice Age and the second wasn’t awful, but it’s been a steady downhill slide ever since. Now, it looks like the gang of extinct critters are finally up against something that should take them out (even though it probably won’t), a meteor that is hurtling towards earth.
I’d be fine with them doing the occasional short involving scrat, but continuing to make whole movies for this franchise is just tiresome.
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.
