Screen Gems has released the first No Good Deed trailer for director Sam Miller’s (Luther) upcoming thriller. The film stars Idris Elba as an escaped convict with a dangerous past who makes his way into the home of a devoted wife (Taraji P. Henson) and her young children. The pic looks to be a pretty disturbing home invasion thriller, maybe because Elba is just so damn likable in most of his other roles. Here, though, Elba appears to be playing a character with very sinister intentions. Stringer Bell this is not.
Hit the jump to watch the No Good Deed trailer. The film also stars Leslie Bibb, Kate del Castillo, and Henry Simmons. No Good Deed opens in theaters on September 12th.

Here’s the official synopsis for No Good Deed:
Terri (Taraji P. Henson) is a devoted wife and mother of two, living an ideal suburban life in Atlanta when Colin (Idris Elba), a charming but dangerous escaped convict, shows up at her door claiming car trouble. Terri offers her phone to help him but soon learns that no good deed goes unpunished as she finds herself fighting for survival when he invades her home and terrorizes her family.
