Following up the major blockbuster launch that happened last week, we have only one flick getting a wide release this time around - and if you didn’t go to church this Easter Sunday, you may not have much of an interest. Get ready for God’s Not Dead 2.

Just remember, I'm not reviewing these movies, but rather predicting where they'll end up on the Tomatometer. Let's take a look at This Rotten Week has to offer.

God's Not Dead 2
Rotten Watch Prediction
Worried you didn’t see the original God’s Not Dead (15%) and won’t really understand the sequel? Don’t be. I’m sure you’ll catch on pretty quick. Hell (pun intended), the title pretty much says it all. The message for this flick is loud and freaking clear and I made it exactly 1:18 into the 2:34 trailer for this film before I called it quits.

There seem to be a heavy influx of Christian movies of late, more than I can remember coming out in wide release and I’ve been writing this column years. That means folks are going to the theater even if it is a niche genre. This one is preaching to one audience and one audience only, telling the story of a teacher (played by Melissa Joan Hart) who finds herself suddenly in court after controversially answering a student’s question about Jesus Christ. Director Harold Cronk helmed the first God’s Not Dead (15%) and also did Do You Believe? (17%), so while he might have a built in audience with the Christian film crowd, his voice and subject matter don’t seem translate to professional critics. I predict this one will finish in line with his other work – possibly performing even worse.
