Beyonce, Elba Obsess Early Box Office with no. 1 Debut !

This weekend’s moviegoers are reportedly “Obsessed” over Beyonce Knowles and Idris Elba’s roles, so much so that their Sony picture is headed straight to no.1 ! “Obsessed,” helmed by Steve Shill and featuring Ali Carter, is undoubtedly on the road to becoming this weekend’s box office success thanks to an $11.2 million opening Friday. The film, Knowles’ latest project to hit the big screen since 2008s “Cadillac Records,” bested previously thought Box Office titans “The Soloist (Jamie Foxx, Robert Downey Jr.)” and “Fighting (Channing Tatum, Terrence Howard)”. “The Soloist,” already predicted to earn Jamie Foxx an Oscar nod by some critics, earned $3.2 million while “Fighting” picked up $4.6 million first day in. Official weekend box office totals will be revealed soon.
