During the summer months, it's common for one or two wide releases to claim a single weekend for competition at the box office, but this week is special because that magic number has been bumped up to four. We're deep in the summer season now, and we're about to see the launch of Cars 3, Rough Night, 47 Meters Down, and All Eyez on Me. 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.

Cars 3 Lightning McQueen
Rotten Watch Prediction
73%

When it comes to the Tomatometer, Pixar Films is basically locking up scores in the 80's and above on the regular. You can almost set your watch to how they finish in the critical realm, with one very glaring exception: Cars 2 (39%). The 2011 film represents their only miss in a long run of critical darlings. In fact, it's the only movie from Pixar that's finished under 74% - which was the low-water mark set by the first Cars. The big question now is if Cars 3 can help redeem the brand.

Cars movies have been incredibly successful in the toy realm, but we'll have to wait and see if Cars 3 can redeem the series cinematically. The third iteration features Lightning McQueen hobbled after a crash and wondering about his role in the automotive racing world. I want to think Pixar picks it back up here, but it's tough to trust after the last effort. But I'm willing to bank on the studio that's given us some of the best movies of the last decade. I'm going to predict that this one winds up with a score similar to the first in the long-running franchise.
