Fans flock to see Beyonce’s new film, making it number one at the box office.
Wired PR News – Audiences flocked to see the new film starring Beyonce Knowles, Idris Elba, and Ali Larter as a psychotic woman who openly pursues Elba’s married character, this weekend, earning it the top spot at the box office. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), the fatal attraction themed movie, “Obsessed” earned $28.5 million in its opening weekend debut.
As noted by the AP, the film was criticized by some reviewers as a disappointing repeat of the 1987 hit “Fatal Attraction.” However, audiences widely disagreed with that assessment. Rory Bruer with Sony distribution is quoted as stating, “There’s something about wanting to see Beyonce kick butt. She’s taking on one wacked chick, played very well by Ali Larter… Let’s face it, everyone loves Beyonce, and to see her in this role is a treat.”
