On an all-new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, Disney continues to score with the live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, handily defeating CHiPs, Life, and even Power Rangers. This week brings another live-action adaptation, this time from the anime genre with Ghost in the Shell. It also brings The Boss Baby. Can either of them take on the song as old as rhyme?
In home entertainment, the slate is short once again as Fantastic Beasts, Planet Earth, and Hidden Figures headline the new movies, MST3K and Static Shock come from TV to DVD, and Cool Runnings jams into HD. Denise wraps it all up with some thoughts on the DCEU before wrapping this new edition of the Weekly Podioplex to a close on The Chronic Rift Network.
