Ice Age 4: Continental Drift gets a teaser.

Believe it or not, but Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs is the fourth-biggest overseas money-maker of all-time, behind only Avatar, Titanic, and The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King. And it's the third-biggest animated film in worldwide history, behind only Shrek 2 and Toy Story 3. With $640 million in overseas grosses, plus the usual $196 million in domestic dollars, it's only natural that Fox would prolong extinction just a little while longer. This was apparently shown before Gulliver's Travels, under the guise of a stand-alone Scrat short film entitled "Scrat's Continental Crack-Up". This is a frankly dazzling little teaser, and one that theoretically sets up the plot for the actual feature. By the time this fourth Ice Age film is released in July 2012, Scrat will have been chasing that acorn for just over ten years.
