'No Good Deed' Surpasses $25M Mark after Leading Monday with $1.61MSeptember 16, 2014 12:41 PM

by Daniel Garris

Sony's No Good Deed took in $1.61 million on Monday to lead the daily box office for a fourth consecutive day. The low-budget thriller starring Idris Elba and Taraji P. Henson fell 71 percent from Sunday's performance. No Good Deed continues to outpace expectations with a healthy four-day start of $25.86 million. That places the film 4.5 percent ahead of the $24.74 million four-day take of 2009's I Can Do Bad All By Myself.

Guardians of the Galaxy placed in second with $0.579 million. The blockbuster sci-fi superhero adaptation from Disney and Marvel was down 72 percent from Sunday and down a slim 20 percent from last Monday. Guardians of the Galaxy continues to pad its lead as the highest grossing domestic release of 2014 thus far and has now grossed a massive $306.57 million through 46 days of release.

Dolphin Tale 2 claimed third place with $0.522 million. The family film sequel from Warner Bros. fell a very sharp 87 percent from Sunday, which is a sure sign of just how heavily the film is skewing towards family audiences. Dolphin Tale 2 has grossed $16.39 million in four days. That is on the lower end of expectations and places the film 18 percent behind the $19.89 million four-day start of 2011's Dolphin Tale.

Fox Searchlight's The Drop took fourth with $0.383 million. The crime drama starring Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace and the late James Gandolfini was down just 57 percent from Sunday, which represented one of Monday's better daily percentage holds. The Drop has grossed $4.49 million in four days, which represents a very solid start given that the film is only playing in 809 locations.

Fox's Let's Be Cops rounded out Monday's top five with $0.348 million. The low-budget action comedy fell 68 percent from Sunday and a slim 20 percent from last Monday. Thanks in part to strong holding power, Let's Be Cops has grossed $73.39 million through 34 days.
