How was everyone's holidays? The highlight of mine was spent finally seeing Rogue One. A distant second was spending time with family. As for this week in cinema, Hollywood is experiencing a bit of a post-New Year's hangover with only one film in theaters: Underworld: Blood Wars. 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.

Underworld: Blood Wars
Rotten Watch Prediction
9%

So the Underworld franchise is still kicking around, huh? Well, okie-dokie. I didn't really see that coming, but apparently folks are still interested in Kate Beckinsale's Selene and her Death Dealer exploits, fighting some form of werewolf. These things look utterly unwatchable to me, and apparently they're unwatchable to most critics as well, as they've basically panned the series since day one. On the Tomatometer, it never got any better than the original Underworld (31%). From there it was Underworld: Evolution (16%), _Underworld: Rise of the Lycans _(29%), and _Underworld: Awakening _(27%). Now they may very well hit a new low. With about 20 reviews already logged on Rotten Tomatoes, the film is sitting at 10% - and there's very little hope in sight for an uptick over the course of the week. Hell, even the positive reviews read almost like apologies.

This is director Anna Foester's first foray into the big budget movie sphere, and though eyeballs may get out to theaters to stare at it (presumably fans of the series and no one else), it looks like it's going to be an unfortunately rotten debut.
