We've got four movies hitting the big screen this weekend with varying amounts of intrigue and excitement. A couple look legitimately great, and then there's Vin Diesel and a Christian comedy. Get ready for The Founder, Split, xXx: The Return of Xander Cage and The Resurrection of Gavin Stone. 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.

The Founder
Rotten Watch Prediction
79%

Ever wonder how McDonald's showed up on seemingly every street corner and rest stop throughout the entire world? You're about to find out where all those Happy Meals started. Director John Lee Hancock has experience in putting compelling, real-life stories up on the big screen. He's made Saving Mr. Banks \(78%), _The Blind Side _(66%) and _The Rookie _(83%). Now with _The Founder_ he tells the story of how McDonald's went from a small little shop to the Golden Arches with roughly a gajillion locations around the world.

Michael Keaton could be making an Oscar turn here as Ray Kroc, who apparently not only grew McDonald's to what you see today but also grabbed a lot of the financial upside away from the two founding brothers (played by Nick Offerman and John Caroll Lynch). Keaton appears the perfect choice for upwardly mobile, kind of snaky dude who grabs a substantial piece of the Golden Apple Pie for himself. Biopics like The Founder often make for solid critical fare and early reviews are strong. I suspect we see it stick in this range over the course of the week.
