Beyonce's "Obsessed" Dominates Box Office

Posted: April 26th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
BeyonceSubmit Comment
The Beyonce thriller "Obsessed" opened to an estimated $28 million from 2,514 location to win the weekend race at the domestic box office. Also staring Idris Elba and Ali Larter, the film scored the second best opening ever for Screen Gems after "The Exorcism of Emily Rose," which debuted to $30.1 million in September 2005.

Universal Pictures' "Fighting" also opened better than expected, grossing an estimated $11.4 million from 2,309 theater to come in No. 3 after "Obsessed" and Warner Bros holdover "17 Again."

Paramount's "The Soloist" opened at No. 4, grossing an estimated $9.7 million from 2,024 theaters. The drama, produced by DreamWorks, came in on the lower end of expectations.

On the specialty side, "Tyson" posted a per screen average of $7,817 as it opened in 11 theaters in New York and Los Angeles to gross an estimated $85,982.

Also making headlines was Disneynature's "Earth," which grossed an estimated $8.6 million for the weekend to nab the third best opening ever for a documentary, and the best ever for a nature film. Film, opening Wednesday, has earned $14.2 million in its first five days. "Earth" landed at No. 5.
