The Mexican goes good, not great, guns with $20.3m

As expected, DreamWorks SKG's superstar vehicle The Mexican which teams Brad Pitt and Julia Roberts topped the North American box office over the weekend, scoring a mighty $20.3m which is the biggest opening ever for the first weekend in March. The R-rated crime caper opened in 2,951 theatres, averaging $6,879 per theatre, which is a strong if not excellent performance. R-rated hit Hannibal, for example, opened with a theatre-average of nearly $18,000.
