On an all-new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, the bad guys kept the newbies at bay, but the Sausage Party and Pete's Dragon still performed well in their opening frames. Their days may be numbered as a sword-and-sandals epic gets a modern remake this week, and one has to wonder if Harley Quinn and the Suicide Squad withstand Ben-Hur? 

 

This week also welcomes Denise Lhamon to The Chronic Rift family as joins the show and ushers in the return of the Quick Flicks. Add in some Angry Birds, the story of Raiders, Gotham, Once Upon a Time, and The Adventures of Buckaroo Bonzai Across the 8th Dimension, and you have a new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, only on The Chronic Rift Network.
