This week we get a wedding in Singapore, an elite C.I.A. ops team and a teenager fighting for survival at the end of an ice age. Get ready for Crazy Rich Asians, Mile 22 and Alpha.

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
93%

Ever wondered about the lifestyles of the ultra-rich and famous in Southeast Asia? If so, then this movie should help answer at least some of those questions. Wrapped in the rom-com genre, Crazy Rich Asians tells the fish-out-of-water story of a young woman who visits her fiancee's family in Singapore only to realize they are richer than some small nations.

The movie is sitting at 100% on the Tomatometer through 25 reviews which saves me the modest embarrassment of being light years off with my prediction. The trailer didn't appear to offer much in the way of real laughs, relying more on the bling visuals than any actual story. That, coupled with director Jon Chu's previous work (Now You See Me 2 - 34%, Jem and the Holograms - 19%, G.I. Joe Retaliation - 29%) would have had me scraping the lower third percentile with any kind of prediction. But critics are loving it, praising both the story and the acting. Crazy Rich Asians looks like a critical winner, even if the score does drop some over the course of the week.
