Hollywood Reporter calls it a guilty pleasure while Variety is mixed but states Katherine Heigl is great.

Every year, we get a film where crazy woman or man enters the life of another woman or man threatening to take it apart due to their infatuation with either the person or their significant other. They’re always are released in September and released by Sony’s Screen Gems. Ever since they released Obsessed in 2009 they’ve bending…wait Warner Bros? What are you doing with an Obsessed ripoff?

 

What’s the deal with Warner Bros. trying to steal Sony’s thunder? Last month they attempted to do that with CHiPs in an attempt to cash in on the success of Sony’s 21 Jump Street and now we have Unforgettable which is NOTHING BUT A CASH IN ON SONY’S OBSESSED! FOR SHIT SAKE THE TIME OF THE RELEASE DATE BARELY EVEN DIFFERS!

 

Obsessed Release Date: April 24th, 2009

 

Unforgettable  Release Date: April 21st, 2017

 

For God’s sake, Sony ripped off their own film nearly every year in the month of September with no but black actors. But Warner Bros? This is a new low for you guys to distribute this.

LOL, Beyoncé fans are annoying. Obsessed was neither original or a box office hit.

Well it made 123 million in revenue and close to 40 million in profit from a 23 million production budget and a small 39 million world releasing cost (pretty much no oversea release), in the industry it must be considered a nice hit, 42% ROI.

Unforgettable is the feature directorial debut of long-time producer Denise Di Novi (Batman Returns, Crazy, Stupid, Love.), stars Rosario Dawson and Katherine Heigl and was made on a slim, $12 million budget. The thriller is debuting in 2,417 theaters and industry estimates have the film targeting a $7 million opening, which appears to be a safe estimation based on what we're looking at. Direct similarities in the $7 million range are tough to find as films such as last year's When the Bough Breaks and The Boy Next Door have opened with double that estimate, and IMDb page view data at the same point in the release cycle tends to reflect that comparison... almost...

 

While we aren't holding our breath, Unforgettable is pacing well behind the likes of The Boy Next Door as well as behind 2013's Halle Berry starrer The Call at the same point in the release cycle, but it is pacing ahead of When the Bough Breaks, though that September 2016 opener appears to be more noise than any kind of real signal. That said, keep that stat in your back pocket as well as the fact the average opening weekend for a similar feature* opening in this many theaters is $11.4 million, which at this point seems outside of this film's reach, but is worth noting. For our forecast, however, we're anticipating an opening over the industry estimate, right around $8.2 million for the three-day.

Of course Obsessed wasn't original but it made $68M in 2009, adjusts to $79M, either is more than other Screen Gems thrillers like No Good Deed, The Perfect Guy, and When the Bough Breaks.

 

Heigl could always act, her career tanked because she was chasing the America's Sweetheart stardom, which suited her talents but not her personality. I really wonder if the trajectory of rom-coms at the box office this decade would have been different if she'd handled her time on top better, she was showing all the signs of slaying in that genre until audiences turned on her.

Yeh, Obsessed was definitely a box office hit.

 

I remember everyone being really shocked on the BOM forums when it opened to $28m.

This wasn't good. 

 

A lifetime film with two good actresses. 

 

It's really silly, a few good laughs though. Unintentional of course.
