Ice Age 4 releases Batman parody trailer The Dark Nut Rises

Ice Age 4: Continental Drift sails into cinemas this week, and the marketing bods have just released The Dark Nut Rises, a teaser trailer that parodies a certain superhero franchise.

Much like The Scratist , which parodied the silent, black-and-white antics of The Artist , this trailer piggybacks the most-anticipated film of the summer with a well-played mickey-take.

The Ice Age franchise’s secret weapon – Scrat the sabretooth squirrel – stars as Scratman, which should be all the reason you need to get watching it now:


Ice Age 4: Continental Drift opens on 13 July 2012. The Dark Knight Rises follows one week later on 20 July 2012.
