Moviegoers "Obsessed" with Beyonce's New Movie! "Fatal Attraction" Wannabe Flick Tops Box-Office! 


"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...
