Apple TV+ just added two dozen more classic movies to its limited-time collection, including three John Wick films, the original Ghostbusters, a pair of Transformers movies and more.

They join an existing selection of films available to the streaming service’s subscribers, as well as all the content Apple TV+ itself produces or buys.

Timeless entertainment for you to enjoy

Almost every film or TV show that appears on Apple TV+ was created for (or acquired by) the streaming service. But it’s not 100% Apple original programs — the service recently began adding classic films to the mix. It’s at least a partial answer to the criticism that TV+ offers a smaller library than most of its rivals. (Small but top quality.)

Recently, a new slate of movies began appearing on Apple TV+ at the beginning of each month. If there’s one on the list you’d like to watch, don’t dawdle: The films are individually labeled as staying on the service through the end of April or May.

But there are sometimes holdovers. That’s true for 27 of them that were already on the service, including three Star Trek movies, Mad Max: Fury Road, 300 and Minority Report.

Watch these films now on Apple TV+

Watching any of these classic films comes with a subscription to Apple TV+. The service costs $9.99 per month, with a seven-day free trial. You also can watch it via any tier of the Apple One subscription bundle.

Apple’s streaming video service also includes much more, of course. Apple produces an array of generally highly rated movies and series of its own.  There are comedies, musicals, children’s shows, nature documentaries, etc.
