We've got three movies on tap this week, with a new twist on a famous heist group, a secret hospital for criminals, and a horror film that looks particularly unsettling. Get ready for Ocean's 8, Hotel Artemis and Hereditary.

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
55%

In this new spin-off from Steven Soderbergh's legitimately awesome heist trilogy, Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock) assembles a rag-tag group of ladies, each with their own quirky (and rather cliche) set of skills to rob the Met Gala. From the trailer for Ocean's 8, it looks fun but predictable, hitting a lot of the same notes we saw from the Clooney/Pitt/Damon-led flicks. They assemble a bunch of big names in the film industry to cover a lot of the ground on the screen behind the loose premise - but to its credit, the cast is pretty great. In addition to Bullock, the movie also stars Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Richard Armitage, James Corden, Awkwafina, Rihanna and Helena Bonham Carter.

Director Gary Ross's last film was a disappointment, as Free State of Jones (46%) didn't get a warm critical reception. That being said, his resume also includes The Hunger Games (84%) and Seabiscuit (77%). I suspect Ocean's 8 falls somewhere in the middle. It's too slick and star-studded to be a total dud, but I can't imagine it blows critics out of the water.
