The Ice Age sequel is still melting hearts in America after taking in a hefty $34.5 million (GBP19.7 million) in its second week on release. ICE AGE: THE MELTDOWN crashed into the number one spot on the US box office list last week (02APR06) with a $70.5 million (GBP40.3 million) debut and it's easily keeping the competition off the top. The family film also becomes the first film to cross the $100 million (GBP57 million) mark. Rob Schneider and David Spade's bawdy baseball comedy THE BENCHWARMERS has debuted at number two with $20.5 million (GBP11.7 million) and Antonio Banderas' new ballroom dance film TAKE THE LEAD has entered the box office chart in third place with $12.8 million (GBP7.3 million). Other top 10 debuts are crime film Lucky Number Slevin at five and PHAT GIRLZ at nine.
