Sony's No Good Deed took in $1.82 million on Tuesday to lead the daily box office for a fifth consecutive day. The low-budget thriller from Screen Gems starring Idris Elba and Taraji P. Henson increased 13 percent over Monday. That represented one of the day's poorer daily holds among wide releases on Tuesday. In the bigger picture, No Good Deed continues to outpace expectations with a healthy five-day start of $27.68 million. That places the film 7 percent ahead of the $25.96 million five-day take of 2009's I Can Do Bad All By Myself.

Guardians of the Galaxy held steady in second place with $0.779 million.

Sony's No Good Deed debuted in first place this weekend with $24.25 million. The low-budget thriller starring Idris Elba and Taraji P. Henson exceeded its rising expectations heading into the weekend. Much of the film's success was due to the drawing power of Elba and Henson. No Good Deed was also helped out by the fairly empty marketplace this weekend and Screen Gems has had a strong history with thrillers in the past. The film's opening weekend performance was similar to the $23.45 million start of I Can Do Bad All By Myself back in September of 2009.

No Good Deed opened with $8.82 million on Friday, increased 11 percent on Saturday to take in $9.78 million and declined 42 percent on Sunday to gross $5.65 million.

Sony reports that No Good Deed posted a strong opening day of $8.8 million on Friday, taking first place in the process. The PG-13 thriller opened 18 percent higher than 2010's Takers (a fellow PG-13 release co-starring Idris Elba), largely thanks to an effective social media ad campaign and the casting of Taraji P. Henson and Elba (each of whom have starred or co-starred in a number of mid-range hits in recent years). Early word of mouth appears decent with a 74 percent Flixster score this morning, flying in the face of critics' lowly 10 percent Rotten Tomatoes score. BoxOffice is projecting a $23.5 million weekend finish in first place, far exceeding the film's $13 million production budget.

That was down 48 percent from the previous frame and brings the film to the verge of the $300 million domestic milestone with a 42-day take of $297.88 million.
