Saturday Blockbuster: Eraser
Saturday March 5th at 9.30pm
Arnold Schwarzenegger, who continues to set blockbuster milestones returns to the screen in Eraser, an electrifying action-thriller.
Schwarzenegger stars as the best of the elite federal marshals working for the Federal Witness Protection Program, one of the government's most clandestine agencies. When all hope is gone, he moves in and saves the lives of those at risk by eliminating all evidence of their existence. He will do anything to keep his witnesses safe. Operating in secrecy by necessity and in anonymity by design, he is United States Marshal John Kruger. John Kruger is "Eraser."
Now he faces his greatest challenge:
Lee Cullen (Vanessa Williams) saw what she wasn't meant to see and now some of the most powerful forces in the world want her dead. While working at one of the nation's leading defense contractors, she inadvertently uncovered a scheme to deliver one of the most advanced superweapons ever developed, the rail gun, into hands that could shift the balance of power in the world forever. What she doesn't know is that the conspiracy reaches the highest levels of government and industry and the players involved will stop at nothing to keep her from exposing the truth. To survive, she must sacrifice her life and her identity. To reveal her shattering secret, she needs a protector. She needs the "Eraser."
Eraser is directed by Charles Russell, who brought audiences the smash summer hit The Mask. Arnold Kopelson and Anne Kopelson, whose credits include Seven, Outbreak and The Fugitive, are the producers.
