As the month of July draws to a close, we don't get a big blockbuster like Dunkirk or a Wonder Woman in this week's set of wide releases, but Charlize Theron is at least kicking some tail, and the kids will have something to check out. Let's take a look at Atomic Blonde and The Emoji Movie.

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.

Rotten Watch Prediction
74%

This has been a pretty good summer for women kicking ass. While Princess Diana of Themyscira won World War I and the box office with Wonder Woman, we now get Charlize Theron working her way through late 80's Berlin in an attempt to kick the crap out of every bad guy in the city. In Atomic Blonde, she is serving up a hot plate of whoop-ass in what looks like a frenetic and funny movie that continues the idea that not just men have to carry action films.

Director David Leitch has already pulled somewhat unexpected critical acclaim with high class action co-directing the original John Wick (85%). That movie, which was Leitch's directorial debut, kept the foot on the gas the entire time, and never really came up for air until almost everyone was dead. This latest looks to be a lot of the same. It appears a tour-de-force with enough laughs to make it well-rounded. Early reviews are overwhelmingly positive with the Tomatometer sitting at about 80%. I don't think it moves too much over the course of the week, and Charlize Theron proves again (after Mad Max: Fury Road) that she's more than up for this genre.
