Battle of the Sequels

This Fourth of July weekend saw a battle of the movie sequels. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs, Fox's third installment of the animated series, both scored $42.5 million over the three-day weekend session, Variety reports. Although the two films are in a dead heat now, numbers released later today should break the tie. On the international market, however, Ice Age trampled the competition with $215.5 million in worldwide sales, the biggest ever opening for an animated film.
