Screen Juice: Beyonce’s ‘Obsessed’ Breaks New Commercial Ground / New ‘Black Panther’ Movie Details Emerge

Published: Wednesday 13th Apr 2016 by David

Welcome to Screen Juice, the TGJ original feature launched to keep you in the loop with all things Film and TV-related!

Who makes up the ingredients of this edition’s news smoothie?


Beyonce…and Marvel’s Black Panther.


As fans anticipate the release of her next movie Beyonce’s Screen Gems release ‘Obsessed‘ continues to make silent but serious moves on a commercial front.

How? After grossing $73.8 million at the box office, the thriller (which also benefitted from Ali Larter‘s ‘Heroes’ fame and Idris Elba’s pulling power) recently picked up an additional $22,875,457 …seven years after its cinematic release.

After Sony Pictures Entertainment released the project for home viewing in 2009 it picked up the figure via DVD sales which crossed the  $8,806,259 point one week into its release.

Since then, interest in ‘Obsessed’-related products continue to soar, placing $22,875,457 in the company’s pockets and pushing Bey’s movie-related earnings far past the $613,126,941 films she has starred in have earned at the box office.

 Chadwick Boseman Talks ‘Black Panther’ Role.


2018 will see Marvel’s Black Panther claw its way into movie theatres with support from its star Chadwick Boseman and its director Ryan Coogler.

Fortunately, fans of the character will not have to wait until then before learning more about the way in which Boseman plans to portray him before he’s set to appear in ‘Captain America: Civil War.’

He told IGN:

I think the difference in him and Captain America is that he’s a ruler of a country. I wouldn’t even call him a superhero. In the mythology of the country (Wakanda), he’s not a superhero. He’s a warrior, and it’s part of their tradition.

Unfamiliar with Panther’s tale?

Watch the clip below and catch him action when ‘America’ rocks theatres on May 6th 2016 and Black Panther leaps into action on February 16th 2018.

‘Collider’ adds:

Coogler is also co-writing the script, but it’s not entirely surprising given that he wrote both of his previous directorial features Creed and Fruitvale Station. Marvel is about to amp up their release schedule to three films a year, which means they’ve got a whole lot on their production schedule. Doctor Strange just wrapped filming very publicly last week in the streets of NYC, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is currently in production in Atlanta, and Thor: Ragnorok set to begin this summer in Australia.

Production begins in the earlier part of 2017.

  2. Aaliyah Dana carter April 13, 2016

    No shade but I’m pretty sure most people didn’t go to see that movie because of Beyonce.. She never had pulling power in the box office. As you can see in cadallic record measly gross of 6 million when she was the main star. And ROFL grapejuice your acting like Beyonce pocketed that 600 million gross.

    • RihRihSting April 13, 2016

      You’re actually an idiot. They didn’t go and see a film starring Beyonce because of Beyonce? Please explain how that would work.

    • Lana Del Bae April 13, 2016

      Education is so key. Hollywood determines a stars worth based on how much money their movies have made which is why Beyonce is credited for its success. How else do you think the studios determine how much they pay an actor per project. These companies have marketing experts who know exactly why their movies sink or swim and the fact is that Beyonce is the reason. Can she act? No. The point is that her popularity is to thank for this. Don’t be so led by hate that you make a fool of yourself.

    • Janet 4Ever April 13, 2016

      “She never had pulling power at the box office.” So they put her in those movies for their health? It certainly wasn’t because of her acting skill.

  3. Bey Sting April 13, 2016

    Beyonce can’t act but to say she isn’t a box office star would be lying. I was around when those movies came out and their promo campaigns revolved around her. It’s hard to imagine now because she thinks she’s above doing traditional Tv promo now.

  5. Aaliyah Dana carter April 13, 2016

    Lol. People went to see that movie because of idris! It makes sense because her other movies have measly grosses! Like cadilic records and that hip opera movie

    • Bey Sting April 13, 2016

      And Aaliyah had nothing to do with Romeo Must Die’s gross. Right?

      • Anne April 13, 2016

        Beyoncé barely if at all promoted Cadillac Records. She was not a main star, her character doesn’t even pop up until the middle. On the other hand she promoted Obsessed a lot, even on CNN, and it was #1 at the box office.

      • Aaliyah Dana carter April 13, 2016

        Hsjssjsjsjsjsj. Yes she does. Jet Lee is not Jackie Chan. That was jet leg first English movie so he has no box office draw in america. There were no other block buster drawing actors in that film. So yes, people went to that film to see her

      • Good 2 B Bey April 13, 2016

        😂😂😂😂. Jet is a martial arts star but you say he isn’t the reason the martial arts movie slayed? Ok Jan! The girls from the old school, Jlo, Britney and Bey etc, were built to be megastars by their labels so everything they touched turned to gold. How you can say Beyonce isn’t the reason her movies slayed is beyond me.

    • Loco Lopez April 13, 2016

      With that same logic I could say Jennifer Lopez had little to do with Maid in Manhatttan’s numbers. Or that Usher had nothing to do with The Faculty. Be sensible dear.

  6. pat April 13, 2016

    damn! the thirst…girl please giv them this new album!

  7. like flop flop flop April 13, 2016

    Fighting temptations gross- $32,750,821

    Cadaillic records gross- $8,880,045

    the other movies she was in she was either supproting role in a movie with block buster actors. Nobody went to those movies to see bey

    • Madame Bey Bey April 13, 2016

      But Beyonce doesn’t star in Cadillac Records. And if they didn’t go to see Beyonce why is her face front and centre on the posters? And why all the interviews she gave to promote them? The thirst to discredit her is so real and your struggle to find a man who wants you is authentic.

  8. DIABETES April 13, 2016

    Lol Ali carter is so delusional. Bey was the MAIN attraction in obsessed as in dreamgirls. It was her first non -singing role (excluding austin powers where she sung but wasnt playing a singer)). & cadilac records also scored big in DVD sales which made the movie back its budget of 10 million. Bey is WELL ROUNDED in literally all areas of show biz. She has the heathiest career of literally all her peers past or present.

    • KatyCat April 13, 2016

      Thank you! You don’t even have to be a fan to see how she took Jlos business model and ran with it.

  9. #justsayn April 13, 2016

    I love me sum Bey but her acting was a pure mess! Bey stays collecting her coins!

  10. Good 2 B Bey April 13, 2016

    The fact that there are people who think Beyonce wasn’t the star of all her movies except CR shows the problem with what she’s doing now promo wise. People are very forgetful and I’m so shocked that it’s gotten to the point where people can’t even imagine a big budget movie centred around her. Something has to change.

  11. DIABETES April 13, 2016

    & bey staring in a black panther or any pro black or super hero like movie wuld be cheesy. She needs a gritty role id like to see bey play a older character or a teacher or anyone with authority. But a serious Drama or Action.

    • Nobo April 13, 2016

      Read the post beyond the headlines obesed and obsessed.

  12. Thando April 13, 2016

    To say that Beyonce’s movies have reached $600 million+ because of her is so desperately misleading. One, that is not her money, two she isn’t the reason for the success of nearly all of her movies. Austin Powers was about Mike Myers. In Dreamgirls she was largely in the periphery. Obsessed was an awful movie with a terribly predictable and shallow script only mae entertaining by Idris and Ali. In Pink Panther I doubt anybody would’ve noticed if she wasn’t in it. Etta James’ life story deserved a better actress and better production than the tame rubbish that was Cadillac records even Adrian Brody was rubbish. All the other pictures she’s made aren’t worth calling your grandmother about either. In all her films she seems to be a director’s worst nightmare, ie a politiical casting by the movie bosses who cannot do what the director wants which is to act. To classify Beyonce as a bad actress would be being very charitable, she’s worse than worse.

    • Good 2 B Bey April 13, 2016

      I will agree she piggy backed on bigger stars in her movies but she is to thank for their success. There’s no denying that. I’d encourage you to go on YouTube to see just how hard these companies went to sell their movies as Beyonce projects. I’m actually shocked that this is even up for discussion.

  14. .:: Centurion ::. April 13, 2016

    Bey movies are terrible. She lacks the power to emote or move a crowd. Even when she’s sad or crying or pouring her feeling out, it is so dull, so humdrum, and so awkward.
    When I saw Obsessed back in 2010, I thought it was quite mediocre. I couldn’t understand how the movie turned out so bad when it featured Heroes’ Ali Larter and Idris Elba.
    Simply put; she a horrible actress, and with her flat tedious and prosaic personality, I don’t see her getting any better.

    • Breezy 101 April 13, 2016

      Mediocre? You’d know all about that wouldn’t you. The cheek of a Frihanna goat to critique a Beyonce movie when Rihanna’s acting and box office skills are drier than the Sahara itself. Please, keep your advice for yourself. I’m surprised you could even afford to see Obsessed seeing as your welfare cut when they found out you were claiming your next door neighbors kids as dependants.

  16. .:: Centurion ::. April 13, 2016

    To say Beybøla’s name is responsible for a film gross is quite a reach.
    • She doesn’t have a film that have grossed over $300M without inflation and ticket adjustments.
    • She has never been in a film with a budget of over $100m.
    • She always stars in low-budget films which are obviously bound to grossed double or triple their budget.

  17. Lolz April 13, 2016

    Not Titanics talking about how the movies success have nothing to do with Beyonce when they’re the same ones who cling to ‘Home’ when animated movies always do well and Rihannas soundtrack still flopped. I cannot.

    • blue April 13, 2016

      rihanna was lead in HOME, and was marketed as such. Also its not a musical so of course its soundtrack wouldnt top the charts.

      • Lolz April 13, 2016

        So? It’s a children’s movie, marketed to children who don’t give s*** that Rihanna is in it. Why didn’t the soundtrack slay if Rihanna the ‘music artist’ is so responsible for its numbers? Stop being so f****** delusional. You can’t have your cake and eat it too.

      • Lolz April 13, 2016

        Um Im sorry but Fifty shades of Grey wasn’t a musical either but still slayed.

      • blue April 13, 2016

        please your logic

      • Lolz April 13, 2016

        My logic is simple. Based on genreal stats, animated movies generally always do well so it would have done well regardless of whether Rihanna was lead or not. And Rihannas core fan base is not children under the age of 13, who make up most of the core audience for the film. So stop.

  18. blue April 13, 2016

    rihanna’s two movies have grossed 600mil at the box office… Nuf said. Also someone tell sam that you dont add dvd sales to box office numbers, just not how it works. But congrats i guess it had one hell of a catfight to rival halle’s bond one.

    • Lolz April 13, 2016

      Has Anti sold a milli yet?

      • blue April 13, 2016

        according to riaa, tidal and rihanna its at 1.7mil units sold in the usa alone.

      • Lolz April 13, 2016

        Hahaha! Keep convincing yourself. It hasn’t even sold 300k in the US.

      • blue April 13, 2016

        believe what you will, you asked and i answered, call me up again in a few months when it get certified 2xplatinum.

      • Lolz April 13, 2016

        You didn’t post any receipts whatsoever of it actually selling a genuine 1.7 million copies in the US alone. RIAA is based on shipments, and Tidal make up numbers. It hasnt even sold 1 million copies WW. Stop being delusional.

    Why is Storms picture in this post? I thought because of copyright issues they can’t have her character appear in Black Panther.

      they cant, which is just all sorts of sad because storm deserves to shine twice over

      • Annalise April 13, 2016

        Yeah I heard that too, and I am disappointed cuz Storm was my fave X-Men growing up! I was really rooting for an authentic African actress to come and slay the f*ck outta that movie and walk away with a bunch of awards. Oh well… maybe she’ll have her own movie one day!

      • blue April 13, 2016

    Why is everyone acting like Bey can’t act and that she’s so horrible at it? Have we forgotten that she EARNED a Golden Globe ACTING NOMINSTION for her character portrayal as Deena in “Dreamgirls”? Let’s stop acting brand new and support Bey now when she needs her black people the most.

    Oh, and let’s not act like Aaliyah wouldn’t have eventually received an Academy Award nomination for a film that she most certainly would’ve bodied to death. SHE WAS AN ACTRESS, INDEED! A well-rounded one, to be exact.

  26. Annalise April 13, 2016

    I was impressed with Beyonce’s performance in Cadillac Records. The key for her will be when she nails a leading role in a non-musical movie with a strong director.

    Cadillac Records is not about Etta James. It’s about Chess Records and it’s rise. Beyonce doesn’t even show up till the last 30 minutes of the film. And lastly it was a limited release. So have a seat! Wasn’t nobody rushing to theatres to see Obsessed for no Idris or Ali. It was for her, and if she didn’t have pulling power she wouldn’t have been at one point the highest paid actress in entertainment

  33. Mariah April 14, 2016
