Now that we've hit the month of August, the summer movie season is starting to wind down. That being said, we still have some reasons to stay excited, with some big new releases getting ready to arrive in theaters. Stephen King's masterpiece is hitting the screen, and Halle Berry gets into a truly scary situation. Get ready for The Dark Tower and Kidnap. 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.

After years of development hell, and plenty of starts and stops, we are finally getting The Dark Tower movie. Honestly, I never thought we'd see the day where Stephen King's epic series hit the big screen and yet here we are with Idris Elba as the Gunslinger Roland Deschain and Matthew McConaughey as the Man in Black. This is meant to be the first in a series - setting the tone and establish the world for those who haven't read the books. It looks like a spectacle and at least visually fulfilling. I'm a little worried about the rest. A movie that's spent this much time in development, had a number of script rewrites, been attached to a ton of different names and now actually doesn't seem to be marketed that much has more than a few warning bells.

The run time has some folks concerned about how exactly The Dark Tower could be an intense epic shoved into 95 minute package. And director Nikolaj Arcel doesn't have much in the way of big budget movies under his belt. But here's to hoping this first one hits so we see the rest of the series play out on the big screen.
