Current theatrical release films appear on Apple TV (Updated)

During our early testing of the second-generation Apple TV, iLounge has found several films available for rent that are currently in or awaiting theatrical release. I’m Still Here, the quasi-documentary starring Joaquin Phoenix which debuted in theaters on September 10, is available for rental for $8, while the sci-fi drama Monsters is available for rental for $11, ahead of its limited theatrical release on October 29. It is unclear whether Apple has plans to continue to offer theatrical release films for rent at higher prices, or whether these offerings are simply one-off titles and not indicative of a larger trend.

Update: It appears the films were available for rent through iTunes prior to the release of the second-generation Apple TV, and are not related to the set-top box’s launch.
