Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs opens on July 1

The beloved animated characters are back in action and apparently going back in time, since the dinosaurs lived and died well before these wooly mammoths and sabre-tooth tigers, etc. Whatever, as long as Scrat is back, yearning for his beloved acorn, we’re happy (and this time he meets a female of the species). Director: Carlos Saldanha. Stars: Ray Romano, John Leguizamo, Denis Leary. Studio: Twentieth Century Fox Animation.

Year One opens on June 19

Jack Black and Michael Cera star as a couple of lazy hunter-gatherers who encounter various Biblical and historical figures after being banished from their tribe. The humor seems mostly based on anachronisms – having characters speak in contemporary slang even though they are in historical – or pre-historical – situations. Olivia Wilde co-stars for director Harold Ramis in this Columbia Pictures production.
