Comcast On Demand has a pair of new movie offerings today.

Take a closer look at these films below and then dial them on up on your Comcast cable system.


My Life In Ruins
Nia Vardalos of My Big Fat Greek Wedding returns with another Greek story – this time as a frustrated and lonely tour guide dealing with annoying tourists (Harland Williams, Rachel Dratch) and a burgeoning surprise of a love affair with the strange bus driver (Alexis Georgoulis) carting her group around.

Battle for Terra
The last remnants of humanity, having destroyed Earth, is traveling through space on a rickety starship when they find a planet that the aggressive General Hemmer (Brian Cox) wants to terraform into their new home. But when soldier Jim Stanton (Luke Wilson) meets native creature Mala (Evan Rachel Wood) and discovers that there’s already a very peaceful civilization on the planet that would be killed in the terraforming process, a battle is forced between the two races for the right to survive.
