Default Completely stumped

I give up; I searched every online dictionary I could find and even tried just Googling this word, but no success. Can anyone tell me what taquillazo is?

Taquilla is the ticket office
Taquillazo is when a play, or a film, or a concert has sold an awful lot of tickets, it has been very successful.

…… a raíz de los taquillazos de Disney
… predice qué película será un taquillazo
…. cómo lograr un taquillazo sin invertir un euro en publicidad
Spider-Man 3 es el taquillazo del año en Estados Unidos y en China.


Tx Uriel y pippa nunca he usado esas palabras – taquilla y taquillazo - otras más en mi cerebro. Mi mujer, sevillana, me dijo que se usa ‘tequilla' no solo para 'box office' al teatro o cine pero también para una 'locker' donde se puede guardar tus cosas al gimnasio. "Dame un euro para la taquilla por favor"

Taquillazo means a box office smash, a blockbuster. The movie AVATAR is a recent example of a taquillazo.

Interesting that the spell checker changes taquilla to tequila . Wonder if the developer is an alcoholic????

But thinking about it the bar is open. Hasta pronto

Pues, encontraba la palabra mientras estaba leyendo una revista mexicana de la cinta "Origen" (también conocida como "Inception"). Parece que la película ha hecho bien a la taquilla.

No.
Bicho is bug, or creepy-crawly. Or a derogatory way to refer to an animal:

El perro del vecino casi me muerde ayer. ¡Menudo bicho que tiene el vecinito!

Bichejo is a diminutive in an even more pejorative way than bicho..

Estabamos en el bar cuando el bichejo ese me empezó a subir por la pierna. ¡Qué asco!

Ah, gracias. La encontraba en una revista de "Depredador". Despues de no poder localizarla en los diccionarios que conozco, hice una busqueda de imagenes, y todos especies de criaturas aparecieron, pero no podía saber a cuales se referió la palabra.

No sé si esto es un error tipografico o simplemente una abreviación desconocida a mi, pero ¿qué significa "atte' en esta oración?

es una abreviación de 'atentamente'.

una manera formal y educada de firmar cartas, documentos etc.

atentamente.
