After only four weeks in theatrical release, Gaz Alazraki's Nosotros los Nobles (pictured) made history in Mexican box office this weekend, becoming the top grossing Mexican film in the local box office ever. The film has grossed an estimate $165.3 million pesos, the equivalent of $13.5 million US dollars approximately, and has been watched by over 3,350,000 spectators.
The film has dethroned El crimen del Padre Amaro / The Crime of Father Amaro by Carlos Carrera and starring Gael García Bernal, which had been Mexico's reigning box office champion since it was released in 2002.
Produced by Alazraki Films and former Warner Bros. production head Leonardo Zimbrón, the hit comedy (which loosely translates as We are the Nobles) tells the story of a millionaire man who decides to test his spoiled children by pretending he's lost all of his fortune and forcing them to do the unthinkable -get a job.
Alazraky's debut feature the story, stars Gonzalo Vega, Luis Gerardo Méndez, Juan Pablo Gil and Karla Souza, and was locally released by Warner Bros.
