On an all-new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, Disney scored a major record-breaking win with Beauty and the Beast. This week continues the revival theme with a new adaptation of Power Rangers and a 21st century bite at the '70s classic CHIPS, as well as a new sci-fi horror film called Life. Can any of these newbies de-throne the Mouse, or will Belle and Beast dance for another week?
In home entertainment, the slate is short as three winter titles make their way to disc, Jyn Erso's mission goes digital, Batman and Dick Van Dyke take on TV, and Hitchcock brings up the anchor position with Lifeboat. Denise wraps it all up with a basket full of news, bringing this new edition of the Weekly Podioplex to a close on The Chronic Rift Network.
