Apple planning Music Movies push on iTunes

Apple has launched a new Music landing page in the iTunes Store’s Movies section, ahead of a broader push that will see the company attempting to negotiate exclusive access to new music-themed movies to make them available on iTunes prior to the physical DVD release. Billboard reports that the first such exclusive will be for It Might Get Loud, a documentary about guitarists Jimmy Page, Jack White, and The Edge; iTunes will offer it from December 8-22, before any other outlet, and pre-orders are available now. Another exclusive is the Kings of Leon concert film Kings of Leon, Live at the O2. In addition, Apple is said to be expanding its catalog of older music-based films, including titles such as Woodstock, The Doors, This is Spinal Tap, and John Lennon Imagine. [via AppleInsider]
