Still from Ice Age 4: Continental Drift
20th Century Fox's Ice Age 4: Continental Drift debuts on-top this weekend with $46 million from 3,879 theatres. Although this number is by no means a shame, it is far off the mark of 2006 Sequel, The Meltdown. Critics unfortunately aren't responding well, with the Animated Feature which showcases the voices of Jennifer Lopez, Ray Romano, Queen Latifah and more, garnering only 40% on Rotten Tomatoes' Tomatometer.

The Amazing Spider-Man slips to second this weekend with $35 million for Sony Pictures. Thus far in North America it has made $197 million in just over two weeks of release - hardly the record-breaking numbers it might've anticipated with its $230 million budget. Overseas though, it continues to wow with $208 million earned thus far.

Universal Pictures' Adult Comedy Ted continues to perform exceedingly well in third this weekend with $22 million. In three weeks it has earned $156 million.

Disney's Brave trails in a distant fourth with $10.6 million, just ahead of Magic Mike in fifth with $9 million and Oliver Stone's disappointing Savages in sixth with $8.2 million.

Katy Perry's Part of Me 3-D sits in eighth in its second week of release with $3.7 million, earning a total $18.8 million - hardly the big numbers Paramount Pictures was hoping for.  Meanwhile, Moonrise Kingdom and Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted round out the Top Ten with $3.6 million and $3.5 million respectively.
