On an all-new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, we're moving into October's back half with a win from The Accountant as it leads the stunning stage bow for Kevin Hart and the stumbling Max Steel. Next week will be action-on-action action as Jack Reacher returns to the silver screen and challenges Affleck for the crown.

 

In home entertainment, Jeff Goldblum and company return to save Earth in Independence Day: Resurgence, while Alice Through the Looking Glass debuts on digtial. In the television department, Bates Motel and Teen Wolf escort the powerhouse Downton Abbey to disc, and to round out the list, we get creepy dolls and creepier serial killers in the return of Child's Play.

 

Cap it all off with Denise and the Quick Flicks, and you have the newest installment of The Weekly Podioplex, brought to you on The Chronic Rift Network.
