The Sheila Files: Beyonce Makes $28 mil with “Obsessed”

By Monday, April 27, 2009 1 No tags Permalink 0

Beyonce Knowles has set a person best with her latest film “Obsesed.” Mid-day on Sunday Sony/Screen Gems said the $28.5 million opening weekend is the second biggest opening in the studio’s history. “Obsessed” also holds the title of the biggest opening ever for a last-week-of-April release, beating previous record holder “Mean Girls” ($24.4M). It also gives Beyonce the best opening of her career as an above-the-title star, topping 2003’s “The Fighting Temptations” ($11.7M) and “Cadillac Records” ($3.4M) from late 2008.

But did the film show Beyonce has grown as an actress? Hells no! Ali Larter steels the show in this movie just like Jeniffer Hudson stole the show in Dreamgirls. Beyonce is still searching for her break out role and this ain’t it.

    I don't think that this was meant as a break out role for Beyonce. She had to overpower two very powerful actors and she just does not have the chops yet to do that.
