The Weekly Podioplex: July 12, 2016

After a three-week break, The Weekly Podioplex is back! On an all-new edition, Dory is still swimming strong after four weeks, but she couldn't outrun the Secret Life of Pets. The pets have spooky competition the week as the controversial Ghostbusters reboot is ready to take the stage. Can the thirty-year old brand overcome the grumpy fans and prove that it's the one to call?

On the home entertainment front, The Divergent Series: Allegiant and Green Room dominate the movies while iZombie and Slasher make their way to TV on DVD. To top it all off, Universal refreshes things with pop art Blu-Rays from the Past as a new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, only available on The Chronic Rift Network, floods into your earbuds.
