I've been trying to figure out why in the commercials/trailers of "Obsessed" feature Idris Elba as the first person named, when the movie is clearly focused on the struggle between Beyonce Knowles' and Ali Larter's characters. And, I mean, if we're going to go off of star power, Beyonce is clearly the biggest star in the film.
I don't get it...

I'm thinking that they're going in alphabetical order for this. I mean who the hell is Idris Elba?ReplyDelete
I really hope so! He's not really anyone well known, even though he's been a lot of stuff. It just stands out to me every time I see the commercial.ReplyDelete
Although Beyonce is the most famous, she is definately not famous for her acting! In other words, a movie starring Beyonce isn't an advertisement for a good movie. Actually, besides Dreamgirls, it's an advertisement for an especially annoying movie.ReplyDelete
Austin Powers 3 wasn't so bad, it was at least better than the second one.ReplyDelete
austin powers 3 was a replica of austin powers 2...a poor one at that...all the jokes were the same and the product placement ads increased by 200000%...as an austin powers fanatic i was incredibly disappointed! and that was one of the movies i had in mind when i spoke of beyonce's lack of acting skill.ReplyDelete
AP 3 may be like AP 2 but there's one thing that AP 3 had that AP 2 will never ever have. It was funny.ReplyDelete
