The Weekly Podioplex: June 7, 2016


On an all-new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, the Apocalypse was almost averted by the heroes on the half-shell, but it's mixed news for the studio. Both sets of comic book heroes could see a challenge with the Now You See Me sequel, the premiere of Warcraft, and another visit to the horrors of The Conjuring. Will they be enough to jump start the flagging summer season?

On the home theater front, it's a list of big hitters, including Disney's Zootopia, Michael Bay, and George Clooney. TV takes a Quantum Leap this week, and a Star Trek blockbuster goes Blu with a director's cut. What more could you want? It's a new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, only on The Chronic Rift Network.
