"The Dark Knight Rises" is parodied in a new TV spot for "Ice Age: Continental Drift". Titled "The Dark Nut", the promotional video sees the saber-toothed squirrel Scrat as a Batman-like superhero who's ready to "rise" and save the day. Riding on a paper plane which resembles the Batmobile, Scart ends up hitting an iceberg and getting eaten by a shark.
In "Ice Age 4", Scrat's reunion with his cursed nut catapults him to places no prehistoric squirrel has gone before. Also in the upcoming film, the famous trio Manny, Diego and Sid will embark on their greatest adventure after cataclysm sets an entire continent adrift.
Separated from the rest of the herd, the three use an iceberg as a makeshift ship, which launches them on an epic seafaring quest. Manny and the gang are challenged like never before to become heroes and do the impossible, as they encounter exotic sea creatures, explore a brave new world, and battle ruthless pirates.
To open wide in the U.S. on July 13, "Ige Age 4" has Queen Latifah, Denis Leary, Ray Romano, John Leguizamo, Jeremy Renner, Jennifer Lopez, Keke Palmer, Drake, Seann William Scott, Nicki Minaj, Nick Frost and Heather Morris lining up in its voice cast ensemble.
