The next animated feature populated by furred beasties isn't out until May 19th, when "Over The Hedge" debuts. In the meantime, here's how the current duo is performing...

"IA2" has collected $172,243,000 in domestic receipts, while "The Wild" scores $24,691,000. (Well, there's always the dvd release...) Overseas, "Ice Age 2" continues to delight Rupert & Associates. Update: Per Box Office Mojo, "Ice Age 2" gathered in $7 million this weekend (the flick is at 7th position in its 5th week, with a total of $177.7 million domestic). "The Wild" clung to number 9 with $4.7 million in the kitty (in its 3rd week; for a total of $28,430,000.)
