Comcast On Demand today premieres the slam-bang post-apocalyptic sci-fi action thriller Terminator: Salvation, starring Christian Bale and Sam Worthington, as well as Jeremy Piven’s raucous ensemble comedy The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard, both in glorious high-definition. Take a closer look at both films below.
McG jumpstarts the Terminator franchise by finally showing us the catastrophic war against the self-aware artificial intelligence Skynet and its army of robotic monsters out to exterminate humanity. Christian Bale steps into the role of the adult John Connor, who strives to inspire mankind’s pockets of resistance to fight the good fight against all odds. When the mysterious Marcus (Sam Worthington) is set loose from a Skynet prison farm, seemingly a refugee from the past, the secrets he carries will sow paranoia and distrust among the ramshackle army. Adding to the desperation is the fact that Skynet has it in for the teenaged Kyle Reese (Anton Yelchin), who will eventually grow up to be sent back in time to be John’s father – meaning he must be rescued, or else John’s very existence is threatened. This is exactly where this series needed to go.
The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard
Jeremy Piven stars in this crazy comedy as Don Ready, a stellar salesman who’s tasked with saving a failing car dealership in Temecula, CA from going bankrupt, and although everything he touches turns to gold, things start to change when he starts to go after his last shot at true love.
