Comic-Con 2014: Movies On Demand Will Bring The Comic-Con Experience To Viewers at Home

Fans who can’t make it to the Con in person can celebrate Comic-Con International 2014 at home with Movies on Demand (MOD) on cable. Now playing on MOD are some of the hottest new release genre films, including 300: Rise of an Empire, The Congress, RoboCop and Snowpiercer, plus many treasured classics. It’s all a celebration of the Movies On Demand platform on digital cable as the best way to watch the hottest genre hits with just a click of the remote control.


Great Current and Classic Genre Movies Now Playing,
Along with Coverage from the 2014 Convention in San Diego

New release MOD highlights:
In the action adventure, 300: Rise of an Empire, Greek general Themistokles and Persian naval commanders Xerxes and Warrior Queen Artemisia lead their separate forces to the gory battlefield in a battle for superior power. Robin Wright stars as an actress in the sci-fi drama, The Congress, which combines live action and animation to create a provocative world where her career is taken over by a digital replica of herself. RoboCop explores futuristic possibilities in the year 2028 when a critically injured cop is transformed into a robotic superhuman. A massive global warming experiment goes awry and leaves only a few fortunate survivors to board the globe-trotting train, Snowpiercer, a new action film which garnered a whopping 94% positive critical reviews on Rotten Tomatoes. Although this train provides an escape from the treacherous earthly conditions, the entrapment on the train instigates a gory uprising.
