Idris Elba Invades Tiraji P. Henson's Home in 'No Good Deed' Trailer

No Good Deed

Last year we saw Idris Elba take on some fantastical bad guys in Pacific Rim and Thor: The Dark World, and he even changed history as Nelson Mandela in Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. But this year he's becoming a villain himself. However, he's not becoming a monster or a comic book villain, but rather a menacing man who weasels his way into a family's house after pretending to have some car trouble in No Good Deed. This looks like a typical home invasion thriller from this first trailer, but both Elba and Taraji P. Henson ("Person of Interest") seem to elevate this typical sort of story with their performances. Plus this film comes from Elba's "Luther" television series director Sam Miller, so that's cool. Watch the trailer!

Here's the first trailer for Sam Miller's No Good Deed straight from Sony Pictures:

No Good Deed is directed by Sam Miller ("Luther" and "MI-5") and written by Aimee Lagos (96 Minutes). Terri (Taraji P. Henson), a devoted wife and mother of two, lives an ideal life that takes a dramatic turn when her home and children are threatened by Colin (Idris Elba), a charming stranger who smooth-talks his way into her house, claiming car trouble. The unexpected invitation leaves her and her family terrorized and fighting for survival. Leslie Bibb and more also star in the film Sony Pictures releases on September 12th.

That was one of the worst trailers I have ever seen. Holy typical cheesy predictable thriller Batman!

One of the worst ever? Come on... The least you can say is that Elba is a credible villain.

Oh yeah Idris Elba is a great actor you can't deny that but it doesn't seem he has much to work with involving this film script.

DJ Jack Ryan Hardy on Jun 13, 2014


The story-line indeed doesn't seem to be very promising...

Look, I don't think it's possible to write this film off by simply viewing a trailer that isn't that original, I'll admit. Elba is just too good an actor to not give this some kind of chance. He's really good in Luther and this director worked on that so I'll give them a break. I was really hoping Tarantino would have had the good sense to cast Elba in Django Unchained as I heard he was in meetings with QT on it. Alas, Tarantino went with Jamie Foxx instead. Although Foxx was okay I much prefer Elba...hands down.

I don't like seeing Elba in a villain role. I like Henson though, she is always sharp.

The film might be solid, but the trailer is poorly made.
