Nosotros Los Nobles nearly beat out Oblivion for the top spot at the Mexican box office last weekend. The Mexican film is already in its third week in release and narrowly lost the #1 ranking with $2.3 million to Oblivion's $2.7 million. The Croods dipped 39% to fall to third place with a $1.5 million weekend to add to its $23.1 million total in Mexico. Evil Dead saw its business affected by the premiere of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D. Neither of the horror films fared particularly well over the weekend, a situation that might warrant a closer look at the release calendar for genre titles in the future. Snitch made its premiere in Mexico and only grossed $203,224 in 148 theaters. Escape from Planet Earth was the big disappointment of the weekend, unable to reach the $1 million mark despite opening in over 500 screens.
