The Weekly Podioplex: April 19, 2016

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.
