Comcast On Demand now features a wide array of films to see, including the big hit movies Get Him to the Greek and Robin Hood. You can also see the indie sci-fi alien infestation film Monsters before it hits theaters, and the Oscar contender Howl while it’s still screening in selected cities. There’s a family wrestling drama you may have heard about called Legendary, and there’s a chilling Sundance horror favorite entitled Frozen. Take a closer look at all of these films below.


Get Him to the Greek
In this Forgetting Sarah Marshall spin-off, Jonah Hill stars as Aaron Green, who is ordered by his crazy music mogul boss (Sean Combs) to escort bombastic drug-addict rock star Aldous Snow (Russell Brand) from England to Los Angeles’ famed Greek Theater for a comeback concert, and the trip leads them to all sorts of insane situations.


Robin Hood
Ridley Scott’s reimagining of the classic tale of the vagabond who robs from the rich and gives to the poor shows us the man before he became the legend. Robin Longstride (Russell Crowe) is an archer in King Richard the Lionheart’s Crusade who deserts with a band of friends, only to become honor-bound to deliver the sword of a fallen knight to his home, which is tended by the new widow Marion (Cate Blanchett) and her father-in-law Sir Walter Locksley (Max Von Sydow). This leads to a conflict with the snivelling prince of England (Oscar Isaac) as well as the threat of an invading French fleet led by the traitorous Godfrey (Mark Strong).


Howl
James Franco plays the renowned poet Allen Ginsberg in this retelling of how a counterculture was born in the face of free speech being threatened by obscenity laws.


Legendary
WWE star John Cena plays a man who ran away from home after tragedy killed his father, sacrificing his promising wrestling career, but he returns to his broken home to mentor his unathletic younger brother as an amateur wrestler.


Monsters
Two people trapped in a Mexico ravaged by giant tentacled alien beasts try to find their way back to America through the “infected zone” without meeting a grisly end.


Frozen
Terror strikes when a group of snowboarding enthusiasts suddenly find themselves stranded on a high-altitude ski lift, forgotten about by the proprietors. If they don’t figure out a way out of their predicament, they’re going to freeze to death. Nobody wants that.
