The movie world is coming down off of an extreme cinema high this weekend thanks to the massive success of Wonder Woman - but that doesn't mean that Hollywood is running short on action, adventure and thrills this summer. Following up last week's big superhero adventure we have three big new releases arriving in theaters this weekend in the form of The Mummy, It Comes At Night and Megan Leavey. It's going to 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.

Rotten Watch Prediction
40%

For a movie about the resurrection of an Ancient Egyptian goddess wrapped up in a sarcophagus, The Mummy has all the hallmarks of your standard Tom Cruise fare. In fact, it kind of looks more like a Mission: Impossible flick than anything else. If the trailer didn't lead and end with reminders about the fantasy parts of the film, you might forget that this is the film that is being used to launch a whole new cinematic universe. The question, of course, is whether or not Cruise's star power can help drive this one to become a hit.

Director Alex Kurtzman has plenty of blockbuster experience under his belt, having been a writer and producer on many major franchise films in the past, but The Mummy marks only his second directorial outing after the drama _People Like Us _(54%). It's hard to get a read on exactly how critics will react to this one, as there aren't any reviews logged just yet, but I predict they may not love the balance of Tom Cruise to monster movie that this film seems to be offering.
