'No Good Deed' Easily Maintains First Place on Wednesday with $1.18 MillionSeptember 18, 2014 07:05 AM

by Shawn Robbins

Sony reports that No Good Deed took in $1.18 million on Wednesday, off 35 percent the day prior. That gives the thriller a 6-day haul of $28.9 million, an impressive start for the pic which is running 7 percent ahead of the pace of Tyler Perry's I Can Do Bad All By Myself and 37 percent ahead of The Call.

Guardians of the Galaxy posted another $0.59 million yesterday for a 19.5 percent drop from last Wednesday. The Disney/Marvel blockbuster continues to show aggressive staying power in the post-summer market as its domestic tally has now reached $307.9 million. The film is running 3 percent ahead of the pace of the original Iron Man.

Warner Bros.' Dolphin Tale 2 grabbed $0.51 million yesterday as it was off from 28 percent from Tuesday. The family-driven sequel has earned $17.6 million in its first six days, 18.5 percent less than its 2011 predecessor.

Fox Searchlight's The Drop continues to impress in limited release. The Tom Hardy/James Gandolfini thriller added $0.37 million from 809 locations yesterday for a strong $453 per-theater average. With $5.35 million in the bank through six days of release, the film will expand into wider release starting this weekend.

Rounding out the top five, Let's Be Cops grossed $0.35 million for a 21 percent week-to-week drop. The comedy has certainly found its audience since opening in August, ringing up $74.2 million to-date.
