Apple TV+ adds movies from time to time — just not usually 50+ at once. But that’s what it did this week with its “Great movies on Apple TV” collection. It includes big-time titles like Mad Max: Fury Road, The Wolf of Wall Street, Titanic and Saving Private Ryan. You can also go old-school comedy with Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and — why not — Old School.

They’re free for subscribers in the United States to stream, but half will be gone at the end of March. The other half will last through April. Another new arrival is Ridley Scott’s Napoleon, but that Apple Original will stick around.

Apple TV+ adds 50 hit films for a short time

Apple TV+ touts its Apple Original Films, and the streaming service is known for them, as well as its roster of TV series. What it’s not known for is having a big catalog of hit movies and TV shows from other sources, like some other major streamers do.

But now Apple TV+ subscribers can binge the living daylights out of 51 hit films they’d usually have to find elsewhere. Just check out the Great Movies on Apple TV+ collection.

And binging my be necessary, as these added films have a short shelf life on Apple TV+. Half will be around for one month and the other half will disappear in two months.

If you’re a Vision Pro user, take note that some of the films include 3D versions, noted below (3D). The added movies are prominently promoted at the top of the Home section of Apple TV+, but you can also scroll down to “All Limited-Time Movies” to select from the list shown below.
