The teaser trailer for the new Ice Age movie, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs, is now online, and once again it features Scrat trying to get his acorn. The Ice Age movies have always been pretty dreadful, but the marketing campaigns – hence the previews – have always been very clever and funny.

The teaser trailer for Ice Age 3 just isn’t as funny, clever, original or entertaining as marketing material for the past two films, and that doesn’t bode well.
Honestly, I’m sick of these movies. Ice Age 2 wasn’t a complete disaster, but of all the animated films to be turned into a franchise, I’ve always felt the Ice Age films to be some of the weakest of the bunch. They just aren’t that funny or entertaining.
