'Obsessed' banks an impressive $11.1 mil on Friday

The don’t-you-dare-take-my-man catfight thriller Obsessed knocked out the competition on Friday, pulling in an impressive $11.1 million from 2,514 theaters, a number that approaches some estimates for its entire opening-weekend gross. The figure puts Obsessed on track for an opening as high as $30 million, which would easily be Beyoncé Knowles’ best three-day weekend debut ever in which she was the film’s main star. Fighting, starring up-and-comer Channing Tatum as a New York City brawler, came in second at $4.5 million, a healthy figure that should bring it close to $13 million for the weekend, a bit higher than some estimates. Zac Efron’s 17 Again held firm with $3.9 million, beating out The Soloist, which grossed a disappointing $3.2 million. At that pace, the Jamie Foxx-Robert Downey Jr. drama may not break $10 million for the weekend. Disneynature’s debut documentary Earth also underperformed with just $2.9 million.
