Twentieth Century Fox Film Corp. Mexico reaped millions from the movie "The Passion of the Christ's" opening weekend of U.S. $4.9 million, but it is not happy about having to stump up the one-peso-per-ticket tax that fills the coffers of a national film fund. The company lost its injunction against Mexico's controversial tax last week. "The Passion of the Christ's" 1.7 million peso opening-weekend admissions means an injection of 1.7 million pesos for the coffers of state-backed national film institute Imcine. Imcine launched the initiative in January 2003 to raise coin for its two depleted film funds, Fidecine and Foprocine.
