If you caught No Good Deed this weekend, you'll know why everybody else did too.  Taraji P. Henson & Idris Elba's suspense flick just landed the #1 spot at the box office!  Deets inside...

That's another #1 for birthday girl and Executive Producer Taraji!  The 44-year-old hottie fought, bashed, and shot her way to the top of the box office with the sexiness that is Idris Elba.

The movie grossed about $24 million, according to Deadline, while it was produced on a $13.8 million budget.  So that makes Producer Will Packer a winner once again.  Will, Taraji and the cast of Think Like A Man Too nabbed #1 this summer, while Will's other movie About Last Night also went to number 1.  So that makes three #1 films in 2014 for Will...and that's a big damn deal.

Taraji told TheYBF.com recently about how she pushed for the movie to get made:

I got the script first. I met Will Packer. He brought this script to me the first year me and Terrance Howard hosted the Soul Train Awards – 5 to 7 years ago. Will was just up and coming. He had just done 'Stomp The Yard' so he brings me this script and I had kind of heard about him and I read the script and I was like, 'When can we go! When can we go!'

And years later how she begged Idris to take the male lead:

Initially when I got the script and we decided it was going to be two black leads we had Idris locked, but then time went on and then he booked Mandela.

I understand as an actor that’s a dream role but, ‘Dude….You do realize you PROMISED you were going to do this movie? I have a son about to go to college! I put this money aside so…I’m gone need you to get it together. I’m a single mother.'

It was the best performance ever. One phone call….and he was there!

It all paid off.  Congrats to the cast & crew!
