'No Good Deed' Continues to Lead on Tuesday with $1.82MSeptember 17, 2014 01:18 PM

by Daniel Garris

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. The blockbuster sci-fi superhero adaptation from Disney and Marvel was up 35 percent over Monday and down a very slim 17 percent from last Tuesday. Daily percentage increases over Monday were strong in general on Tuesday. Guardians of the Galaxy is the highest grossing release of 2014 thus far domestically with $307.34 million through 47 days.

Dolphin Tale 2 grossed $0.703 million to remain in third place. Like Guardians of the Galaxy, the family film sequel from Warner Bros. also increased 35 percent over Monday. Dolphin Tale 2 has grossed $17.10 million in five days. That is on the lower end of pre-release expectations and places the film 18 percent behind the $20.78 million five-day start of 2011's Dolphin Tale.

Fox Searchlight's The Drop stayed in fourth place with $0.492 million. The crime drama starring Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace and the late James Gandolfini was up 28 percent over Monday's performance. The Drop has grossed $4.98 million in four days, which represents a very solid start given that the film is only playing in 809 locations.

Let's Be Cops rounded out the day's unchanged top five with $0.457 million. Fox's low-budget action comedy increased 31 percent over Monday and was down only 21 percent from last Tuesday. Thanks in part to continued strong holding power; Let's Be Cops has grossed $73.86 million through 35 days of release.
