No Good Deed Does Good Business – Biff Bam Pop’s Weekend Box Office Wrap-Up Report

The early box office numbers are in and it appears as though No Good Deed did go unpunished. Here’s what went down:

No_Good_Deed_2014_movie_posterNo Good Deed, staring Idris Elba in a home invasion thriller, hit the top this weekend, bringing in an estimated $24.5 million. The film has already made back its $13 million budget in its debut weekend, so everything else is just going to be extra to the pot. A solid opening, and one shows that Elba’s star is shining brighter and brighter.

As for the rest of the top five, Dolphin Tale 2 debut in second place with a decent $16.5 million. While it’s nowhere in the realm of big time Disney films, there’s clearly a family audience that hasn’t been served for some time that was eager for some fun fare. Guardians of the Galaxy dropped to third place with $8.5 million, raising its tally to $305 million, the first movie this year to cross that $300 million mark. Who would have though it? In fourth place with $4.7 million was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, while The Drop brought in $4.1 million in limited release. The final film from James Gandolfini should grow its audience in the next few weeks.

So, to recap, here were our predictions:

1) No Good Deed – $17.5 million
2) Dolphin Tale 2 – $16.5 million
3) Guardians of the Galaxy – $7 million
4) Let’s Be Cops – $4.5 million
5) Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – $3 million
