It's a real interesting week of movies this time around with flicks all over the spectrum in terms of tone. We've got Jackie Chan looking for revenge; a little bit of screams mixed with laughs; Thurgood Marshall on his way to the Supreme Court; and the birth of Wonder Woman. It's all here this week. Get ready for The Foreigner, Happy Death Day, Marshall and Professor Marston and the Wonder Women.

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 Foreigner Jackie Chan
Rotten Watch Prediction
55%

In The Foreigner, Jackie Chan stars as a father with a particular set of skills who goes looking for revenge after his daughter is killed in a terrorist explosion. Basically, the legendary action star is now channeling his inner Liam Neeson. Chan obviously has a lot of experience in this realm of kicking and punching his way to action movie victory, but in this one he brings a para-military background and a crazy deadpan affect that appears to bring some ass-kicking ennui to the proceedings.

Director Martin Campbell has an interesting resume. He's got Casino Royale (95%), Golden Eye (78%) and The Mask of Zorro (83%) featured, which were all successes among critics; but then there's Green Lantern (27%) and Vertical Limit (48%), which were entirely forgettable. A few early reviews suggest this will finish on the right side of positive, with critics appreciating Chan's dramatic turn and the action sequences. It won't be a world-beater, but this does help Chan age gracefully into early senior citizen action style.
