Ice Age Collision Course is the fifth film in the animated series of which I still haven’t seen any because CGI kids movies aren’t really my bag, but this trailer did tickle me, given how Scrat (Chris Wedge) inadvertently creates the universe.
Scrat’s epic pursuit of his elusive acorn catapults him outside of Earth, where he accidentally sets off a series of cosmic events that transform and threaten the planet. To save themselves from peril, Manny, Sid, Diego, and the rest of the herd leave their home and embark on a quest full of thrills and spills, high and lows, laughter and adventure while traveling to exotic new lands and encountering a host of colorful new characters as well as a new enemy who is a brother to one of their old foes.
Mike Thurmeier returns to direct for the third time, this time alongside Galen T Chu, a first-time co-director for the series but an old hand on the Ice Age series, and the script and story comes from Michael Berg, Aubrey Solomon and Michael J Wilson, with the cast also including Melissa Rauch, Simon Pegg, Stephanie Beatriz, Nick Offerman, Jennifer Lopez, Adam DeVine, Keke Palmer, John Leguizamo, Max Greenfield, Denis Leary, Ray Romano, Carlos Ponce, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Wanda Sykes, Michael Strahan and, oh dear, Jessie J.
Ice Age Collision Course is released in the UK on July 29th 2016, a week after the US and even longer after many European countries, so expect the date to change nearer the time.
