Giveaway: "Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs" DVD combo packs!

The Scrat pack is back!

Last week, CC watched “Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs” -- the third film in the animated franchise about Manny the woolly mammoth, Diego the saber-toothed tiger and Sid the sloth -- and she was completely intrigued by a prehistoric squirrel named Scrat and his quest for a single acorn.

That seemingly mundane task, at least for an animal known for acorn stalking, took on dire consequences when he became entranced by a female squirrel who wanted that same acorn.

“Uh-oh,” CC said, as they tugged at it and eventually sailed off a cliff. That spells trouble, all right. (Not that much trouble. The movie is PG, after all.)

We also were able to meet Scrat in person (er, in squirrel?) on the Fox Studios lot, as director Carlos Saldanha, Blue Sky Studios animator Eric Favela and executives from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment gathered to chat about the DVD, which hits stores today.

The “Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs” DVD combo pack – which includes the movie on Blu-ray, DVD and a digital copy – also has cool extras such as a storyboard maker, a tutorial on how to draw Scrat and an interactive cast directory that lets you look up the resumes of voice actors including Ray Romano, Denis Leary, Queen Latifah, John Leguizamo and Simon Pegg.


In honor of the DVD hitting the street today, I’m giving away five copies. To enter as of Friday, Oct. 30, leave a comment on the following link: http://bit.ly/fAX2h

I'll announce the winner Monday, Nov. 2.


And, if you happen to be in Santa Monica today, ice sculptors are building the world’s tallest ice sculpture of, you guessed it, Scrat, in an attempt to break the Guinness World Record. The chilly (and free) unveiling will be at the ice-skating rink ICE at Santa Monica -- a wintry oasis amid 80-degree temps -- at 4 p.m. He is expected to stand 45 feet tall, all from 133,000 pounds of ice gathered across four states.

Cool! I hope to see pictures of the ice sculpting. No pressure or anything, just some of us can't go see it in person. :)

Wow, thanks for the great oppurtunity to win this movie. My family and I saw Ice Age 1 & 2 in theaters, but didn't get to see 3 yet, due to a family illness. We are so excited to finally see it.
