It’s September, and that means modest movies doing modest box office business. With that said, two of the weekend’s new films – No Good Deed and The Drop – look rather impressive, at least in terms of the modest expectations most of us have for September releases. In less equivocally impressive terms, Guardians of the Galaxy became the first release of 2014 to pass $300 million in domestic earnings. The last film to hit that benchmark was Frozen back in January but, because the Disney hit was released in 2013, GotG stands alone as 2014’s one and only triple blockbuster.
