Every so often audiences get a week full of new releases that seemingly has something for everybody - and it would seem that this is one of those weeks. It's perhaps not time to go into full-on excitement mode, but there is definitely some interesting material hitting the big screen on Friday. It's time to get ready for Fifty Shades Freed, The 15:17 to Paris, and Peter Rabbit.
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.
It feels like it was only yesterday that the Fifty Shades franchises was only just emerging, but now it's coming to an end with Fifty Shades Freed. While the franchise may have its fans, however, there aren't a lot of them among the professional critic set. The books never got much love from reviews either, but currently the high point in the big screen franchise is still the first film, Fifty Shades of Grey (25%), as the first sequel, Fifty Shades Darker, only managed to earn a 10%.
Fifty Shades Freed will be the capstone story about Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey as they navigate the spicy world of BDSM and ultimately determine the fate of their romantic entanglement. James Foley is back in the director's chair despite things not exactly going to well the last time around. I expect the movie's Rotten Tomatoes score to match its immediate predecessor.
