Obsessed Trailer

Sony has debuted the trailer for Obsessed, the first of many bad films coming in the first half of next year. Beyoncé Knowles and Idris Elba play a happily married couple, but when Ali Larter tries to start up a steamy office relationship with Elba, all hell breaks loose. As hot as Larter may be, it doesn't make up for the fact that this looks terrible. It gets especially bad when Beyoncé gets all bitchy and goes after her in a fiery rage. I'm glad Sony is dumping this in April right before the summer movie season kicks off so that we can forget about it and never have to think about it again. I highly suggest you don't watch this trailer.

Obsessed is directed by TV's Steve Shill, who is making his big screen directorial debut after directing Knight Rider for TV as well as episodes of "The Kill Point" and "Dexter". The screenplay was written by David Loughery, of The Three Musketeers, Money Train, and Lakeview Terrace previously. Sony will debut Obsessed in theaters on April 24th, 2009. Is anyone planning to see this at all?

I think I just gagged a little, the only value this movie might have is as a doorstop.

it doesnt look that bad. sure we basically have seen the whole movie in the trailer, but i still think it looks ok. dont think id go out and see it, but not too shabby of a trailer.

zach s on Dec 18, 2008


looks like complete shiet...

Antonio Cruz on Dec 18, 2008


Looks ok. I love Ali and had high hopes for this. Not what I expected though. A bit disappointed because I had high hopes but it looks entertaining. Me and my friends were talking about last night how there hasn't been any movies like FATAL ATTRACTION or BASIC INSTINCT for a while and this kind of looks like one of those. Trailer seemed to give away a lot though.

Will this be in front of SEVEN POUNDS?

Ryan on Dec 18, 2008


What a depressing parade of dismal conventions: the psycho temptress, the perfect family man, the defaced snapshots, the wronged wife and....ta-da!.....the old rotten floorboards trick too! What a rotten, rotten film this promises to be.

sleepykid on Dec 18, 2008


I just had a massive boner.

nem on Dec 18, 2008


This reminds me of that Bruce Willis/Halle Berry movie, "Perfect Stranger". I'll wait for the DVD!

Pickle on Dec 18, 2008


No this reminds me of the Michael Douglas movie Disclosure.

Heckle on Dec 18, 2008


no it reminds me that if you marry a whore you look for a bitch

AJ on Dec 18, 2008


Yeah, this looks like a cross between DISCLOSURE and FATAL ATTRACTION. And Stringer Bell is in this? He should know better!

Marco on Dec 18, 2008


you took the words outta my mouth Marco

darrin on Dec 18, 2008


putrid........beyonce knowles is the new jennifer lopez.

dan on Dec 18, 2008


Ok it's gonna suck, but between Beyonce and Ali just the fine ass women factor alone I'm checkin' it out. Loves me some Beyonce and ain't that Stringer Bell from the Wire?

PimpSlapstick on Dec 18, 2008


hahahahahaha!!! That looks aweful. Who greenlights these projects?

Phil on Dec 18, 2008


Ali Later is beautiful and very hot and sh´s the ideal woman for to face Beyonce. Between Ali and Beyonce, I prefer Ali.

Jose on Dec 18, 2008


Isn't this that movie with Timothy Hutton and Lara Flynn Boyle?

ebbie on Dec 18, 2008


this seems oddly familar

Samuel on Dec 18, 2008


can we say swimfan 2 lol. Too bad this one will be a horrible movie AND lack originality though.

rybo on Dec 18, 2008


It looks like one of those "Date", "epic" or "scary" Movies where they spoof everything. they should have called it "Scary Broad Movie"

theotherbluth on Dec 19, 2008


It looks good, I wish we had girls like that in my office.

TheKritik on Dec 19, 2008


Beyonce is a beautiful singer and entretainment but no a good actress. Ali Later have more experience and is so beautiful and sexy than Beyonce. I don`t undersatand why Beyonce`father as produtor of the film invite a so beautiful woman for rivalased with Beyonce. And unfortunately for Bee, it looks like Ali Larter hot body and beautiful face could steal the show this time arrowd too.

David on Dec 19, 2008


#21 said that this "seems oddly familiar". This is because this movie as Alex mentioned is written by the guy who wrote Lakeview Terrace. I think it has a very Lakeview Terrace vibe. Personally I loved Lakeview Terrace but I don't think this will be as good. However I will probably end up seeing this.

moviekidmike on Dec 19, 2008


you know its high quality when the trailer is sums up the whole movie in a few minutes

Hex on Dec 19, 2008


Yall some hating ass people for real

john on Dec 19, 2008


damn...the trailer was the movie...oops!

TREY on Dec 19, 2008


Yea please dont watch the trailer even though its posted on the site. wink wink. I love reverse marketing.

Bezelbub on Dec 19, 2008


You'll never see a girl act like that for an asian guy... *sigh*

LW on Dec 19, 2008


This looks awesome. I can't wait for Beyonce to release the chart-topping two-disc tie-in album epic "Temp/Obsession" The title track: Girl, why you makin' my man trifle/ Make me 'bout to get my rifle/ I ain't messin' / This ain't no Obsession / I'm gonna get you hell bent / You just a trick-ass TEEEEEEMMMMMMMPPPPPP.... (Cue Jay-Z beakdown as the husband) But seriously, is this Tyler Perry's revamp of Fatal?

b on Dec 19, 2008


when are they gonna start giving idris elba denzel roles?

fanboy d on Dec 19, 2008



a05a88 on Dec 19, 2008


fuck!! this trailer tells the WHOLE story in only 2 and a half minutes, what´s up with that??

felipe on Dec 19, 2008


The movie will be a box office KA *BOMB*.......................... maybe I will go see Tales of Desparou after that crap...Nah

SHANEDAV on Dec 19, 2008


Alex, I have NO IDEA why you would want to bad mouth this movie so much. Have you seen it? Did some one close to you get sacked from the production crew? The trailer was cool, they did the usual and cut all the best bits together, but there was nothing there to justify such displeasure.

Monerville74 on Dec 19, 2008


Balls. Big hairy balls.

Crapola on Dec 20, 2008


this is the role i've waited my whole two lives for ali larter to play

twispious on Dec 20, 2008


I would be way more interested if the roles were reversed and Knowles was playing the femme fatale.

jason on Dec 20, 2008


Two things about this trailer I liked. Jerry O'Connell showing up out of the blue and the website at the end: - hilarious!

Conrad on Dec 21, 2008


I like Beyonce' alot and I love Ali Larter so I won't ruin my thoughts about them by watching this trailer, and no I certainly will not go and see this "tragedy" at the box office.

RSH on Dec 28, 2008


Oh, my God, I can't wait to see this! For once Beyonce isn't singing!!!!!!! Yes!!! This movie looks good ass hell! Forget you haters, u guys dont like it cause most of u are stalkers, or stalking!!

Mz Forte on Dec 31, 2008


Well personally I expect many people to not enjoy this movie since a black man is on the come up in his acting, and people cant handle the fact that Beyonce is running the music scene. I actually think its going to be good, and it portrays the ideal American work place and what some woman will do to get a REAL GOOD MAN, and what a real woman has to turn to to protect HER MAN & HER FAMILY. Say what you wanna, this movie will still get viewed... And people will love it. I can see Michelle & Barack going to see this with Bill & Hillary!

Torrie on Jan 18, 2009


I believe this version will compliment the original and remakes of Fatal Attraction according to my views of the trailer.....I admit...I am worn out by Beyonce due to the onslaught of constant plays of her songs on the radio.....every other track....not her fault though.....YO DJ'S.....please....TOSS IT UP!!

MGeezy on Jan 21, 2009


SwimFan with a Beyonce twist....

Lacy on Feb 22, 2009


Sure this will be awful but this is a movie for all those chicks out there who want to get their dose of crazy women and the affairs they stir up.... I've got a friend who wants to see it. Sure, why not to make her happy, right?

Conrad on Feb 26, 2009


this does look like a good movie, but it did give the ending which is a disappointment. but im more excited about basic instinct 3 than this movie.

nick on Mar 2, 2009


This movie looks alright but I believe I have seen it before um......Fatal Attraction duh! lol this is just the remix for the black folks.

j-thack on Mar 18, 2009


i love beyonce so hate all you want she is laughing straight to the bank lmao...AND ALL U PEOPLE WHO THINK THAT WHITE WOMAN IS SEXY U ARE ALL WRONG BEYONCE IS SEXY AND ALL US BLACK PEOPLE KNOW IT SO HATE IF U WANT!!!

Beyonce on Mar 31, 2009



Beyonce on Mar 31, 2009


u guys need 2 stop hatin, this movie looks great and I can't wait to see it. U just can never get a good comment about anything these days, we just pull each other down every time we reach success, i say good job to Beyonce and every other actor in this movie and I wish them good luck. Everyone of my friends can't wait to see this movie, including myself.

moviewatcher on Apr 7, 2009
