Having been previewed by Entertainment Tonight earlier, the trailer of Screen Gems drama thriller "Obsessed" has finally made its debut. The promotional video serves as an introduction to the three major characters in the film, Idris Elba's Derek Charles, Ali Larter's Lisa and Beyonce Knowles' Sharon.
Focusing on the affair between successful asset manager Charles and temp worker Lisa, the trailer begins with the first meeting between the two in a lift. Then, it builds up to show how Lisa starts flirting and tempting Charles. When the tension grows higher, it is revealed that Charles has already had a wife and how Lisa tries to take him away from her and starts to stalk the family.
Directed by television series helmer Steve Shill, "Obsessed" is developed from a script written by David Loughery. It is due to be released in the U.K. on March 20, 2009, and in the U.S. on April 24, 2009.
