On an all-new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, Mowgli remained king of the box office jungle as the Huntsman fell on his axe, and the Man-Cub faces some competition from comedies as the box office prepares for #TeamCap and #TeamIronMan to wage Civil War. Meanwhile, the home entertainment slate clears the decks with some winter wares and an animated return to the three-hour tour, and the chimichangas get delivered on streaming by the Merc with a Mouth. Cap it all off with a look at May's coming attractions, and you have a new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, only on The Chronic Rift Network.

On an all-new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, Mowgli became king of the box office jungle, and with a stunning performance and reception, it may be difficult for The Huntsman to dethrone the man-cub. Meanwhile, home entertainment welcomes some more winter warriors to your shelf, including Leo and the bear, Norm of the North, and the Croatoan of Haven. This and more on a new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, only on The Chronic Rift Network.

On an all-new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, the Dawn of Justice was made dimmer by Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Bell, but with a terrible reception, can it keep the supers down? It may have some help with Disney's magic and the retelling of one of their classics. Heroes at war continue the story as the Justice League and the Teen Titans slug it out on Blu-Ray, Tim Kring's vision of humans battling evolution comes to your shelf, and Marvel's Phase Three gets ready to kick things off with #TeamCap vs #TeamIronMan. This and more on a new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, only on The Chronic Rift Network.

On an all-new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, Batman v Superman remained on top, but at a cost. This week's newcomers are small but innovative, and the question remains: How long can Justice reign? In addition, you can bring the Force home this week, as well as a touching farewell for a time-traveling companion. This and more on this week's edition of The Weekly Podioplex, brought to you on the Chronic Rift Network.

On an all-new no foolin' edition of The Weekly Podioplex, the bunny took a backseat as Batman and Superman battled their way through several records for a stellar weekend. The big question is whether or not those titans can keep the box office throne against brutal critical reviews and a lackluster new release slate. This, some winter films for your home theater, and a return to the Satellite of Love fill out the rest of this week's edition of The Weekly Podioplex, brought to you on the Chronic Rift Network.
