The Weekly Podioplex: November 8, 2016

On an all-new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, the box office goes strange as the Doctor Strange takes the top spot. There are no losers among the newbies, as Trolls and Hacksaw Ridge aren't far behind. Next week's new arrivals (see what we did there?) will attempt to take down the good doctor with aliens, family drama, and shut-in thrillers.

In home entertainment, we have a Sausage Party, the digital debut of Kubo, and the Devil of Hell's Kitchen leading the pack. After we put a bow on the package with Denise and the Quick Flicks, it's time to deliver you a brand new installment of The Weekly Podioplex, brought to you on The Chronic Rift Network.
