The Weekly Podioplex: October 4, 2016

On an all-new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, we get peculiar as Miss Peregrine and her wards find box office gold with Deepwater Horizon running close behind. They face a challenge from another movie with kids as Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life joins The Girl on the Train and The Birth of a Nation to compete for number one.

In home entertainment, the X-Men face Apocalypse, the Sharknado tries for a fourth time, and Star Trek goes beyond to digital. Preacher and Constantine lead a thrilling set as TV goes spooky, and Harry Potter and Gremlins take over with returning releases from the past. Add in your weekly news with Denise and the Quick Flicks, and we have a warm welcome to October on The Weekly Podioplex, exclusively on The Chronic Rift Network.
