After a blockbuster week last time around with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, we get a week with a double dose of big releases. We get medieval with King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, and get kidnapped with Snatched. It's gonna be a Rotten Week!

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.

King Arthur Legend of the Sword Charlie Hunnam
Rotten Watch Prediction
52%

Imagine if all it took was pulling a sword out of a stone to become the king of a whole country. It would surely cut down on some our current political strife, that's for sure. But so goes the legend of King Arthur, who pulls Excalibur out of a rock and takes over England. This updated version of the story stars Charlie Hunnam as the titular character along with an all-star cast (taken some from Game of Thrones) and gets the Guy Ritchie-frenetic pacing treatment. It looks entertaining with some bigger spectacle scenes and a somewhat comedic bent Ritchie is known for.

We catch King Arthur as he's coming up on the mean medieval streets before he's actually started his reign. With Legend of the Sword, Ritchie looks like he's made a fun watch, and he's of course had plenty of directorial success. The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (67%), Sherlock Holmes (70%) and RocknRolla (59%) come to mind though he's not immune from a dud, like Revolver (17%). I doubt this latest blows anyone away but likely lands right in range of his previous work.
