Open zip remotely

Forums: 

Is there a command to open a zip which is stored on the internet? Note that I don't want to dl the entire zip, just a specific file in the zip. Say the file is stored at www.random.com/foo.zip. How can I get thing.exe out without saving the entire foo.zip to hard drive? Thanks in advance.
