Keep an eye on the US box office top 10 on Rotten Tomatoes over the next few days.
If, as expected, Dr Seuss’ The Lorax and Project X hop in and bump Wanderlust and The Secret World of Arriety out of the top 10, we will have a batch of completely “rotten” movies. A film needs at least 60% of critic reviews to be positive to be considered fresh on the site.
Source Code and Moon director Duncan Jones reckons it could be the first time this has ever happened…
Wanderlust right on the edge at 60% on RT.Could see the first ever completely rotten top ten at next weeks box office. Yeesh!

There’s something wonderfully ironic about the weeks following the Oscars being so full of terrible releases. At least John Carter will swing into action next week with a 100% fresh rating. It’s meant to be amazing, right???
