It’s pretty much been one of the slowest box office summers in recent memory, with Guardians Of The Galaxy sitting at the top for several weeks now. Still, despite some massive success, that film was going to have to yield the throne to a new movie sooner or later. And it looks like one good deed of a film is pulling out in front of it.
Or No Good Deed, to be precise. The Idris Elba starring thriller took in over $24 million at the North American box office, easily taking the top spot. That’s a great start for a film of this specific genre, as it bettered the opening weekend of similar movies such as last year’s The Call by quite a fair margin.
Dolphin Tale 2 took second spot and an estimated $16.5 million, down from the original 2011 film which made over $19 million on opening, while Guardians Of The Galaxy shifted down to third, making another $8 million, which now gives that cosmic flick a grand worldwide total of over $611 million. Here’s how everyone else did on the weekend:
- No Good Deed – $24.5 Million
- Dolphin Tale 2 – $16.5 Million
- Guardians Of The Galaxy – $8 Million
- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – $4.8 Million
- Let’s Be Cops – $4.3 Million
- The Drop – $4.2 Million
- If I Stay – $4 Million
- The November Man – $2.7 Million
- The Giver – $2.6 Million
- The Hundred Foot Journey – $2.4 Million
Top ten departures this week include When The Game Stands Tall and As Above/So Below. When The Game Stands Tall has remained firmly in the US of A, as the sports drama managed to rake in around a meagre $26.5 million over a four week run. Horror flick As Above/So Below didn’t do too well either, as that flick only made over $27 million worldwide over a three week rin. Eish.
