Fast6.jpgFast & Furious 6 continued to dominate the Mexican box office in its second weekend, grossing $7.5 million to reach an impressive $25.9 million cume. The action film trounced the competition, placing well above the debut of The Great Gatsby and animated films Epic and Zambezia.

A $1.8 million opening for The Great Gatsby in 746 screens saw the Baz Luhrman adaptation place second over the weekend. It's a solid performance in tune with Gatsby's steady overseas box office performance. Epic placed in third with a $1.3 million take, only a 28% slide from the previous week. Epic is not reaching the same blockbuster numbers that The Croods claimed in Mexico, with the new animated film currently claiming an $8.4 million cume. A limited release for Zambezia saw the film place fourth but post a $2,323 per-screen average -comparable to Gatsby's weekend share. Domestic comedy Nosotros Los Nobles broke another milestone over the weekend, reaching the $26 million mark after its tenth week in release.
