Y Tu Mama Tambien

Distribution and finance

Y Tu Mamá También was produced by Anhelo Producciones, a company co-founded by Cuarón and Jorge Vergara, a well-known Mexican businessman and the film’s producer.[2] The company provided sufficient funding to make the film and launch an impressive marketing campaign.[2] The $5 million film budget was substantial by Mexican film standards.[2] Advertisement and publicity appeared across Mexico.[2] The investment paid off and the film earned $2.2 million in the first week, breaking Mexico’s box office records for domestic films.[2] Along with the help of Anhelo Producciones, the ratings board controversy gave the film a lot of free publicity in Mexico.[2]

The film became a global success after its distribution by major U.S. independent companies Good Machine and IFC Films.[2] The film was bought in the U.K. by the independent company Icon and in Mexico by major transnational corporation 20th Century Fox.[2] Overall, it made $13.62 million in profits within the United States and was distributed to forty countries.[2]
