'No Good Deed' Beats 'Guardians of the Galaxy' At The Box Office

Despite abruptly cancelling the film's screening nationwide  No Good Deed starring Idris Elba and Taraji P. Henson who also serves as executive producer was the box office winner this weekend raking in over $24 million. 

“There is a plot twist in the film that the studio does not want to reveal as it will affect the audiences’ experience when they see the film in theaters.”

As some of you may know Guardians of the Galaxy has held on to the number spot at the box office for over four weeks having made over $600 million worldwide making the film the highest grossing film of the year thus far. But that fact didn't deter Sony.

"It's a movie that we really loved and felt that it was going to win," said Sony distribution chief Rory Bruer. "You have to give it to the cast in Idris and Taraji. Their chemistry together is fantastic."

Oddly enough Taraji had doubt in the faith of big studios when it came to her work. 

"Network executives don't always get me, and studios underestimate my box office draw," she says, adding that she always delivers when given a chance to prove herself. "

Is it safe to believe faith in Taraji has been been redeemed?
