The Weekly Podioplex: December 22, 2015

Was it any surprise that Star Wars: The Force Awakens did as well as it did at the box office this past weekend? And it certainly looks to hold that spot this weekend despite there being four new movie releases to challenge it. Just how far can this movie got when it appears to be so universally accepted as a proper sequel to the original Star Wars trilogy? Michael Falkner has all this, some DVD releases, and a look at January movies that could challenge The Force Awakens on a new Weekly Podioplex.
