Unlike the last several weekends with ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ taking the top spot at the weekend box office, this weekend things were up for a change. ‘No Good Deed’ broke out taking first place at the weekend box office.
‘No Good Deed,’ a thriller about a home invasion that terrorizes a mother and her family, took in $24.5 million. This is a fairly good profit considering the film cost $13 million to produce.
Running up next at the weekend box office was the sequel ‘Dolphin Tale 2.’ It took in $16.6 million, but that was not enough to beat out the $19.2 million debut for its 2011 predecessor.
And even as ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ let go of the top spot at the box office this weekend, it still managed to pull in another $8 million to make its total gross $305.9 million.
While there was improvement this weekend at the box office compared to last weekend, it was still a relatively quiet weekend.
We’ll have to see how the movie box office plays out for this coming weekend with more new releases!
