Ice Age: Continental Drift knocked off The Amazing Spider-Man this weekend as the #1 movie in America. The children's flick, which stars Young Money stars Drake & Nicki Minaj, is the fourth film in the animated franchise and pulled in an estimated $46 million opening at the box office.

The Amazing Spider-Man raked in $35 million over the weekend, a drop of 43.6 percent. Drake, who voices the character of a mammoth named Ethan, is no stranger to acting as he famously portrayed Jimmy Brooks on CTV's Degrassi: The Next Generation. This is Nicki Minaj's first crack at the big screen, which also stars Jennifer Lopez, Queen Latifah, Ester Dean and Aziz Ansari.

    Um most people didn't even know Drake was in this movie and this is considered a disappointing showing by industry standards. I know this is a hip hop site but let's be real. Queen Latifah was the one who did the most press for this. Give her and Jennifer Lopez credit--the real movies stars--if anyone. Nicki & Drake were side players.
