While March was a major month for movies - from Logan to Beauty and the Beast - it's all coming to an end with a relatively quiet week . We've got a manga coming to life with the action thriller Ghost in the Shell, and a new cinematic treat for the little ones with the release of the animated Boss Baby. 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.

Ghost in the shell Scarlett Johansson stands above a defeated foe

I'm sure the idea of Scarlett Johansson in a "nude suit" packing heat and shooting cyborgs has more than a few fanboys absolutely on life tilt. Just the imagery alone likely draws folks out of the shadows to see the live action version of the popular manga comic, Ghost in the Shell. But take one look at the trailer for this film and you can see some serious flaws in production. It's a telling sign when of a troubled film when you can't understand the general plot line from the marketing. It might mean there simply is no plot, but rather a mash up of years of the comic storylines and arcs. Frankly, I had no idea what was going on here except a bunch of shooting, Johansson looking a bit weird, more shooting, some robotics, shooting, and a some CGI bits . That is a bunch of red flags.

Director Rupert Sanders has one other big budget meh showing with Snow White and the Huntsman (49%), and I suspect this one gets a similar critical response. While fans of the original might like the live action version (think Resident Evil), I can't see any scenario where this appeals to a broader audience (Scarlett or no Scarlett). It just looks too hacky and niche to work.
