A number of internet video stores have let you pre-order movies for a while, but not Google Play, you’ve had to mark the release on your calendar to get a hot flick ASAP. Don’t worry about being so dutiful in the future, though. Google has switched on movie pre-orders for Google Play users in the US; you now just have to find the title you want to see and click a button to reserve it.
New for Google Play users in the US, Google has officially announced the ability to pre-order your favorite movies fresh out theater and pay for them so you’ll have access the day they’re available on digital. Currently, there are only 15 movies available for pre-order, but we expect that list to change and/or grow as time goes on. Currently you have options of titles like Gone Girl, The Maze Runner, Lucy, Guardians of the Galaxy, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and more.
