"Ice Age: Continental Drift," the fourth film in the animated series featuring a woolly mammoth and his prehistoric friends, trampled "The Amazing Spider-Man" and took the top spot at US and Canadian box offices yesterday with $46m.

Featuring the voice of comedian Ray Romano as the warm-hearted mammoth Manny and John Leguizamo as Sid the fast-talking sloth, the 3D film's opening weekend beat forecasts and topped the debut of the most recent movie in the series, 2009's "Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs," which opened to $42m.
