We're really not sure which is scarier: The number one film or the descent of the summer box office. Annabelle may have won the weekend, but this year's summer season is not performing well at all. Between The Hitman's Bodyguard and Logan Lucky, maybe there's hope in two adult comedies as the season winds down.

 

The home entertainment slate looks a little better with Alien: Covenant leading the pack, backed by heavy hitters like Once Upon a Time, The Blacklist, Legends of Tommorrow, and Riverdale. Oh, and a little creepshow known as Pet Semetary. So many chills down the spine. After that, Denise brings news of Hannibal, Hellboy, Neuromancer, Dawn, and whatever The Ballad of Buster Scruggs is. It's the dog days of summer right here on a new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, brought to you on The Chronic Rift Network.

The battle between good and evil seems to be a winner, but the victory is tainted by really low attendance numbers. That's unfortunate, but audiences may find some respite from The Dark Tower with another crack at The Nut Job. There's also some real life drama in The Glass Castle, a creepy creepy doll in Annabelle: Creation, and the hope that Detroit finds legs in the interim.

 

The home entertainment slate is heavy on film and light on TV, showcasing King Arthur, Snatched, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Blindspot and the mysteries of amenesiacs and terrorists amp up the action before moving into retro titles with two Teen Wolf tales. Wrap it all up with Denise and news of an Ant-Man sequel, a Pacific Rim sequel, and a Nintendo Classic sequel. We seriously hope that they work out the bugs in that last one. Also, a PSA on fantasy, dogs, and milkshakes. Seriously, be kind to living creatures and #MakeMineMilkshake on a new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, brought to you on The Chronic Rift Network.

Sometimes, not even secret agents and poop are enough to win the weekend. On this edition of The Weekly Podioplex, we face the triumph of Dunkirk and the rise of The Dark Tower, and we question if Stephen King is enough to defeat Christopher Nolan and dramatic war dramas. [CONFORM] This week also sees the wide releases of Kidnap and Detroit, dramas starring Halle Berry and John Boyega.

 

The home entertainment slate tries to steal hearts with a bank heist in Going in Style, a thrilling mystery in The Circle, an extraterrestrial horror in Alien: Covenant, and a blast from the past with They Live. [OBEY] To wrap it all up, Denise brings us a few confrontations, including the singularity (and Melissa McCarthy), Confederate (and HBO), and Castlevania (and the video game curse). Did we mention Darkwing Duck? Yes, there's Darkwing Duck. This and more on a new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, brought to you on The Chronic Rift Network. [CONSUME]

The Weekly Podioplex returns to find good performers and a disappointment. Dunkirk is the victor, Girls Trip is a winner, but Valerian disappointed while looking pretty. All three of them face challenges from thrilling Atomic Blonde and poop... er, I mean, The Emoji Movie. Or maybe just poop.

 

The home entertainment slate brings Ghost in the Shell, Emerald City, Pretty Little Liars, and Silkwood, all of which lead into the Quick Flicks where Denise talks remakes, revivals, Squirrel Girl (!), and why, oh why, sweet Christmas why is Confederate a thing? This and more on a new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, brought to you on The Chronic Rift Network.

After a brief break, The Weekly Podioplex has returned to news of an infestation at the box office. This week's winner is Spider-Man: Homecoming, which made a pretty big splash for a superhero whose only reward is supposedly action. The wallcrawler faces a new challenge as war comes to the Planet of the Apes. Simian or spider: Who will win?

 

The home entertainment slate goes high octane with The Fate of the Furious, a lost city, the Smurfs, and the unexplained between magic and time travelers on TV. After Leeloo Dallas Multipass goes 4K for a 20th anniversary, Denise returns with news of Netflix, gender and race conflicts in popular TV, and word that James Bond may expand to a whole shared universe of stories. This and more come together on a new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, brought to you on The Chronic Rift Network.

On an all-new double digest edition of The Weekly Podioplex, the Transformers won the weekend, but it was a hollow victory based on sales. Meanwhile, Wonder Woman and Cars 3 picked up the slack. The next two weeks will be a test for the numbers two and three as Gru, the Minions, and Spider-Man make their debuts. It's kids and comics against kids and comics, and the winners are us.

 

On the home entertainment slate, Power Rangers, The Boss Baby, The Zookeeper's Wife, Prison Break, and Homicide make their way to your shelves alongside others. The Lodger celebrates 90 years and Fievel Goes West, then Denise tells us all about replicants, Han Solo's director issues, and an assembling of Avengers. Put it all together like a LEGO Death Star and you have another edition of The Weekly Podioplex, brought to you on The Chronic Rift Network.

On an all-new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, Lightning McQueen won the race, but can he match Wonder Woman's box office endurance as she continues to take down her DCEU brethren? This week, they both face off against a new set of cars as a popular '80s franchise gets another movie chapter in Transformers: The Last Knight. The question is how the Michael Bay action spectacle will match against two movies with feeling.

 

On the home entertainment slate, the pickings are equally slim as Life, Kong, Jake and the Fatman, and Under the Dome make their way to various shelves. To top it off, Denise discusses remakes, squees about DuckTales (woo-oo!), laments Cruise control, and says goodbye to Batman. Add it all together and you have another edition of The Weekly Podioplex, brought to you on The Chronic Rift Network.

NOTE: Apologies to Michael and Denise for the delay in producing this episode - JD

 

On an all-new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, The Mummy could not defeat Diana of Themiscrya, and the other newbies couldn't even keep up. The race is still on this week as Wonder Woman defends her crown against the might of Disney, Pixar, and Lightning McQueen. Can ka-chow defeat the Amazon princess or will she make it a box office three-peat?

 

On the home entertainment slate, Bones, The Vampire Diaries, and Grimm all say goodbye as LEGO Batman, John Wick, and the Power Rangers say hello. Add in some Rockford Files, a prison break, and Denise with comic news in the Quick Flicks, and you have another edition of The Weekly Podioplex, brought to you on The Chronic Rift Network.

On an all-new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, it was no contest as Diana of Themiscrya stormed the box office and made massive waves. This week may pose no threat to her reign as Tom Cruise tries to reboot The Mummy. The world has Wonder Woman.

 

On the home entertainment slate, it's Disney debuts the live action Beauty and the Beast, the Doctor makes his tenth season premiere, and another Disney classic celebrates 75 years in our hearts. He can call us flower if he wants to. It's a nice thing to say. Wrap it all up with Denise and the Quick Flicks, and we come to the end of another edition of The Weekly Podioplex, brought to you on The Chronic Rift Network.

On an all-new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, it's evident that pirates rule and lifeguards drool, even if it was a lackluster holiday performance for both of them. This week, Captain Jack and the babes and brawn of Baywatch contend with an Amazon princess. It's a DC Comics origin story that isn't for Superman, isn't for Batman, and isn't even for a man. Finally, the world has Wonder Woman.

 

On the home entertainment slate, studios air out some winter releases with The Shack, Before I Fall, A Cure for Wellness, and some major crimes and intrigue on TV. Denise ends on a high note with various popular properties coming to screens in the near future, putting the polish on another edition of The Weekly Podioplex, brought to you on The Chronic Rift Network.
