It's still the summer movie season, and this week we continue to see big titles arrive on the screen - this time around in the form of a big blockbuster comedy, and a highly-anticipated animated sequel. That's right, both Finding Dory and Central Intelligence are getting ready to arrive in theaters.

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.

Central Intelligence
Rotten Watch Prediction
72%

Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart are paired in Central Intelligence as a former chubby nerd turned incredibly jacked CIA agent, and a former jock homecoming king turned accountant. What ensues, judging by the trailers that have been released for the movie, looks ridiculous, over the top and damn funny. We know Hart has comedic chops already and Johnson has always has a not-so-sneaky funny side to him. Sure, he spends most of this time flexing his muscles and blowing things up, but the dude can act and this role looks perfect for him.

Directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber, who has had his ups and downs in the comedy space over the course of his career. He has Dodgeball _(70%) as one of better received movies critically, but there's also _We're the Millers (47%), which came out a few years ago and didn't get the same kind of approval. I suspect Central Intelligence falls closer to the former. The on-screen chemistry between Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson appears legit, with the showcased jokes well-timed. I'm down for it, and think this will be a hit with both the critics and the box office.
