Box office

It became a box office success in Argentina, opening #1 at the domestic box-office, grossing $2,268,283 pesos ($460,098 USD).[6] The film grossed a total of $10,342,696 pesos ($2,097,910 USD).[11]

In Mexico, however, this film was a huge disappointment at the Mexican box office, opening at #18 and only earning $1.5 million pesos ($0.9 million USD).[12][13] This was due to poor marketing, an unsuccessful competition with the Mexican releases of more-successful blockbusters such as The Avengers and The Lorax, and the fact that the Mexican audience were unfamiliar with the comic book series as a whole.

On 16 April 2015, Animation World Network has announced that Viva Pictures has picked up the distribution rights for a United States release.[8] Victor Elizalde, president of Viva Pictures said, “The landscape for quality animated content is changing quickly and Imira is in leading the way by using globally recognized brands like Speed Racer and Gaturro along with visually stimulating animation."[8]
