‘Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs’ takes box office record away from ‘Finding Nemo’

Fox’s “Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs” has taken the international box office crown away from Pixar’s “Finding Nemo,” as it soared past the previous record of $524.9 million for an animated film’s international gross. Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs now sits comfortably at the top with $551.4 million so far. The film is still playing in theaters, so expect the final total to be much higher — most likely in the $600 million range. Not to take away from Ice Age’s accomplishment, I must remind you that this total includes the higher prices of 3D/IMAX screenings.
