"Obsessed," a film not shown to critics in advance, defied gravity, and took the top slot, selling $28.5 million in ticket sales. The film, like many "Fatal Attraction" wannabes before it, is about a temp worker (Ali Larter) who's, well, obsessed with her boss (Idris Elba). The problem is, her hunk of a boss is married to the fierce Beyonce Knowles (or is it Sasha Fierce in this movie, I'm not quite sure).
Previous No. 1 flick, "17 Again" starring Zac Efron, fell to No. 2 with $11.7 million raising its 10-day total to $40 million.
Other new films didn't fare as well as "Obsessed." "Fighting" about a group of tough-as-nails dudes doing what they do best...fighting...opened at No. 3 with $11.4 million. BUT, "17 Again" and "Fighting" have box-office totals so close that we'll see Monday if their positions changed when final tallies come in.
Meanwhile, "The Soloist" starring Jamie Foxx and Robert Downey Jr. debuted at No. 4 with $9.7 million.
The best story of the box-office weekend? "Earth" by DisneyNature, debuted at No. 5 with $8.6 million, scoring the third best opening for a documentary, and the best ever for a nature film! Congrats Disney!
We'll now see how Disney is going to match their one-week box-office total by planting a tree per moviegoer! Stay Tuned...

I love Miss Bea, and I loved "Golden Girls." It was one of the few TV shows I remember watching the series finale with my mommy. And we both cried...
And now, we're crying again with Miss Bea's passing, she was 86.
Take a look here for a special look back at her life, and here's an AP video of the Tony award-winning actress!
Our condolences to her family.

"Twilight" actor Kellan Lutz (L), Rooney Mara (Center), and "Terminator" TV show star Thomas Dekker (R) have joined the cast of "A Nightmare on Elm Street" remake!
This reboot is going to be directed by Samuel Bayer, and will co-star Kyle Gallner, in the role that was once played by Johnny Depp in the 1984 original.
Freddy Krueger is going to be played by "Watchmen's" Jackie Earle Haley.
Lutz will play a school jock (aren't they all school jocks in this type of films?), Mara will be an ambitious girl who wants to move out of town, and Dekker will star as a tough dude with girlfriend-issues.
But you know, they're all going to be Krueger's prey.
Lutz is currently shooting "The Twilight Saga: New Moon," so his part will be scheduled later into the production.
"Nightmare" will start shooting May 5 in Chicago!
