Taraji P. Henson Plays WTF Emoji | VH1 [x]
No Good Deeds is #1 at The Box Office!
UPDATED, SATURDAY, 7:33 AM: As Disney/Marvel celebrates Guardians Of The Galaxy‘s $300M domestic milestone this weekend, Screen Gems is getting a nice reward from newcomer No Good Deed. The $13.8M-budgeted film from director Sam Miller is expected to pull in anywhere from $24.5M-$25M for the three-day weekend, marking producer Will Packer’s third No. 1 opening film of the year, after the success of Ride Along which bowed in January and Think Like a Man, Too this summer. Screen Gems’ No Good Deed, which also was produced by Lee Clay, stars Idris Elba and Taraji P. Henson. Elba, who has also been the lead in three No. 1 box office bows now, was in Screen Gems’ thriller Obsessed which opened to $28.6M in April 2009 and went onto gross $68.2M domestically. Henson, who was nominated for best supporting actress in Benjamin Button in 2009, is part of Packer’s Think Like A Man franchise. If this picture plays like Obsessed, it will be profitable for Sony. By the way, I saw Henson in Bernie Weinraub’s stage play Above the Fold and she gave a terrific performance.
