The thriller beat out Dolphin Tale 2, which comes in second place with $16.5 million.
Dropping to third spot is Guardians of the Galaxy, while Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Let’s Be Cops round out the new top five.
We recently had a chance to sit-down with Taraji and speak about the film, what it was like working with Idris and more. Head on over here to read the interview.
No Good Deed follows the story of Terry (Taraji P. Henson), the mother of 2 young boys who recently left a high-level career as an assistant D.A. to become a stay-at-home mother. One night she’s home alone with her sons when Colin (Idris Elba), appears at Terry’s door claiming car trouble and asking to use her phone. Charmed by the charismatic stranger, she leaves him outside while she goes to get him a phone, but soon learns that no good deed goes unpunished. The next thing she knows, Terry is being terrorized inside her home by a vicious sociopath. What Colin doesn’t realize, is that Terry may have the wits and strength to outsmart him at his sadistic game.
