Man of Steel flew to the top spot of the Mexican box office, grossing just under $10 million in its opening weekend. The $9.6 premiere averaged $3,493 across 2,771 screens in Mexico. It was one of the principal markets for the superhero film in its day-and-date debut, as it grossed above $70 million in its initial overseas roll-out.
After Earth fell to second place in its first hold-over weekend, adding $2.5 million after dropping 52%. The Mexican cume for After Earth is a positive $9.9 million that will help soften the film's woes elsewhere in North America.
Fast & Furious 6 had another weekend over the $1 million mark. The action film has grossed $33.9 million in four weeks. It looks like the great success of Iron Man 3 will fall short of the $50 million mark. The third installment in the Iron Man franchise has grossed $48.5 million in Mexico but a decreasing screen count as the summer rolls on will likely see the film fall out of the top ten next weekend.
