On an brand new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, the box office shrugged off a turkey coma as Moana unseats Fantastic Beasts as the box office champ. Unfortunately, that luck didn't spread far among the new releases. The good news is that they have a chance to remain in the running since this week brings only one contender to the table.
In home entertainment, the slate belongs to the movies as six titles from 2016 make their premiere. Add them to a baby for Bridget Jones, a House of Lies, and a game of Finders Keepers to put the finishing touches on the plate. Add in dessert with Denise and the Quick Flicks, and you have an end-of-the-month edition of The Weekly Podioplex, brought to you on The Chronic Rift Network.
