ICE AGE 4

Posted: 06/21/2012 in Movie Update

A long awaited part 4 of Ice Age is now nearly be showing to our favorite movie house here in the Philippines.

SCRAT’S EARTH-CHANGING CHASE IN “ICE AGE 4: CONTINENTAL DRIFT”

Forget what you’ve learned in geology about the continents forming as a result of massive tectonic turbulence and volcanic eruptions tearing land masses apart. “Ice Age 4: Continental Drift” reveals that these seismic shifts came about from Scrat’s misadventures.

 

Two million years ago, one global-shattering event changed everything. Scrat, the world’s most lovable prehistoric squirrel-rat is about to rewrite history in “Ice Age 4: Continental Drift.” The film reunites us with Scrat as he’s going about his usual business: he has grabbed the acorn, set it down on the ground – and suddenly a mountain is torn apart and the earth itself opens up, separating land masses into the seven continents. Scrat hurtles toward the earth’s core, triggering massive earthquakes, which in turn isolates Manny, Diego and Sid from the rest of the herd. Scrat’s continental crack-up has cast adrift Manny (voiced by Ray Romano), Diego (Dennis Leary) and Sid (John Leguizamo) from the rest of the herd, including Manny’s beloved wife Ellie (Queen Latifah) and their teenaged daughter Peaches (who was born in 2009’s “Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs” and is voiced by music-actress Keke Palmer).

From his introduction as a breakout character in “Ice Age” to becoming a celebrated movie icon, Scrat has brought joy to countless moviegoers – and to the filmmakers who bring him to life. “There’s no better or more enjoyable character to animate than Scrat,” says director Steve Martino. “Who else can you knock around, smash around – and he just keeps going after that nut?!” Adds supervising animator Nick Bruno: “Scrat is why I’m in animation. His adventure in this movie is like a classic tale, where he sees his goal, goes after it, and gets his butt kicked. But this time, the stakes for him and for the herd couldn’t be higher.”

Meanwhile, let’s hear it from Scrat whose thoughts will only be read and heard in the q&a that follows:

Q: Hi Scrat. First things first. Is your acorn safe?

Scrat: Define ‘safe.’

Q: Buried in a place that only you know about.

Scrat: Not exactly (fidgets).

Q: Where is it right now?

Scrat: It’s within arm’s reach – well, almost.

Q: Why is it so hard to hold on to your prized nut and keep it safe?

Scrat: That is a question I ask myself every day. Every hour of every day. Every minute of every hour. Every second of

every minute. Every nanosecond of every second. I ask myself that question a lot.

Q: Some might say your interest in acorns borders on obsession. How would you respond?

Scrat: Are you saying that I’m nuts? Oooh nuts. Mmmmm, nuts… (rubs hands together).

Q: What have you learned over the course of the last few years?

Scrat: A coconut is not a giant acorn. And if you roast an acorn for long enough, it will turn into a large popcorn kernel.

This is not to be recommended.

Q: Is it true you found a treasure map recently?

A: I did!

Q: What does X mark the spot of?

Scrat: A whole island filled with beautiful golden acorns! Oooooh…

Q: Wow. That must be very appealing to someone of your disposition. What do you think the probability of ever

finding that treasure is?

Scrat: Hmmm (scratches head). Realistically? Maybe one in a hundred trillion? I’ll happily die trying though.

Q: Is it hard to live with yourself, knowing that your past actions have led to earthquakes, volcanoes, continental

drift and global warming?

Scrat: Huh? I’m just trying to bury my nut, dude. Don’t get all heavy on me.

Q: You’re one of the only living animals to have visited the earth’s core. What is it like there?

Scrat: It’s hot.

Q: You sound like Paris Hilton.

Scrat: Who?!

Ice Age 4

JENNIFER LOPEZ IN “ICE AGE 4: CONTINENTAL DRIFT”

One of the world’s most loved idol, musician and actress Jennifer Lopez joins the fourth outing of the phenomenal hit franchise “Ice Age” headed by its three heroes from different species namely Manny the mammoth, Diego the tiger and Sid the sloth in “Ice Age: Continental Drift”

This time, along with Manny’s family and Sid’s grandma, they face a formidable chilling adventure against a group of pirates in the cold seas. With Scrat in the middle of it all subdividing land masses into what we now know as the seven continents, the group’s all-new adventure takes them on a thrilling ride to the far end of the seas.

Jennifer Lopez plays Shira, a beautiful saber tooth pirate who is also a loyal first mate on their ship of pirates headed by a prehistoric orangutan named Captain Gutt (Peter Drinklage). After Diego and Manny capsized Gutt’s ship, Shira gets separated from the pirates and is shocked to discover that Gutt has no real loyalty to her. When Diego appeals to her join his motley crew, she has to make the decision to stick with Gutt or to join Diego, Manny and the herd. Initially battling Diego and his best friends Manny and Sid, Shira finds herself slowly losing her heart to Diego in the midst of their adventure to find home.

But alas! Love Love is never simple, especially for sabre-toothed tigers. Shira is a member of a pirate crew that has taken Diego, Manny and Sid hostage, so Shira and Diego’s initial encounters are as foes who go toe-to-toe – and sabre-to-sabre – against one another. They are equally matched. “Shira is a femme fatale; she’s sharp, fast and intelligent. But they’re more alike one another than either tiger would admit, and from their hostility and attempts at one-upmanship comes a shared point of view and ultimately a relationship,” director Steve Martino shares.

Ice Age 4Leary insists it’s about time Diego found someone to share his life with. “It took only four ‘Ice Age’ movies for me to get a love interest. Believe me, when making the first ‘Ice Age’, I didn’t look down the road and think, you know, Diego’s going to get a girlfriend and it’s going to be J-Lo. I would have put that in my contract back then if I thought I could have gotten away with it!”

According to Jennifer Lopez, who joins the “Ice Age” family as Shira, Diego and Shira are destined to join forces. “The two characters have a similar backstory,” she explains. “Diego left his pack of sabre-toothed tigers in the first film, and Shira had left hers because she didn’t like the pack mentality. Shira felt like she didn’t belong anywhere until she joined the pirates. Eventually she realizes the pirates are out for themselves, and she must make a choice between staying with them or starting a new life with Diego.” And as we all know, Diego can be very convincing.

Lopez was excited about joining the “Ice Age” team, especially as an empowered figure. “ICE AGE: CONTINENTAL DRIFT is a poignant, fun, exciting and sweet story, and I love playing strong female characters like Shira,” she explains.

The filmmakers were thrilled to get the multi-talented actress-singer-“American Idol” judge onboard. “Playing a character in an animated film is about more than just the actor’s voice,” says producer Lori Forte. “It’s about the attitude, and Jennifer really brings it.” The film also makes use of Lopez’s singing talents, as she joins her fellow pirates (including Peter Dinklage, Nick Frost, Aziz Ansari, and Alain Chabat) in a sea shanty, “Master of the Seas,” written by Adam Schlesinger (of Fountains of Wayne); and accompanies Nicki Minaj, Romano, Leary, John Leguizamo and Latifah) in the closing song, “We Are (Theme from ICE AGE: CONTINENTAL DRIFT),” written by Ester Dean.

Ice Age 4

But first, some words from J. Lo’s Shira – on filming the latest Ice Age movie and the experience with co-stars of various species.

Q: Great to meet you Shira. You’ve got such a beautiful shiny coat.

Shira: Purr… Thank you very much (licks paws).

Q: You’re new to the Ice Age gang. What did you make of them at first?

Shira: That pack of misfits? A sloth, a mammoth and a sabre-toothed tiger – it’s like the start of a really bad joke. No, I’m just kidding with you. Those guys are the best thing that ever happened to me. They gave me back my freedom… Well, after they locked me in a prison cave that is.

Q: Prison cave? What happened?

Shira: Oh, it’s a long story. Let’s just say I’d fallen in with a bad crowd and had some deep-seated trust issues.

Q: By a bad crowd, do you mean Captain Gutt and his revolting crew of pirates?

Shira: I’d really rather not talk about that phase of my life. It’s in the past now.

Q: We hear you’re quite a warrior princess. Is that true?

Shira: I can hold my own (strokes whiskers). All those years on a pirate ship did at least teach me how to fight. It was survival of the fittest out there, not survival of the friendliest.

Q: Not just a pretty kitty then?

Shira: Hissss! Everyone knows the female of the species is more deadly than the male. So you’d better watch out (growls).

Q: Oh come on, you two are blatantly having some kind of romance. Admit it – you melted his ice-cold heart didn’t you?

Shira: I’ll tell you what. If you can run to the top of that vertical cliff face and back in under 30 seconds, I’ll tell you anything you want.

“Ice Age 4: Continental Drift” opens July 12 in cinemas nationwide from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.
