At the beginning of April, Google sealed a deal with Paramount that would bring 500 additional movies to the Play Store. Now, the Roaring Lion has decided to join the ranks as well: MGM studios' catalog is now available on Play Movies. The iconic MGM lion has been around for many years, and is one of the most easily recognizable signs that cinematic enjoyment is coming your way. The addition of MGM means that Google now has five of the six major movie studios' offerings in the Play Store - leaving Fox as the only one that hasn't jumped on board.

Whether you're ready to blow the dust off your boxing gloves and watch the trials and tribulations of Rocky, live in the future and watch Ed209 get his butt handed back to him by Robocop, ride alongside Arnold as he tries to kill Sarah Connor in The Terminator, or simply relax and get your dose of heart-warming romance with Moonstruck, Google Play Movies now has what you need.

They're in the process of adding all of the films, so it may be a bit before all 600 become available.

    Arnold did not protect John Connor in The Terminator.  In fact, John Connor wasn't even in The Terminator.

      Looks like Cameron was thinking of T2. Is T2 included as well btw?

    • falconator

      Technically he is at the end in Sarah Connor's stomach. He plays as the fetus.

        Ya, cause that's where babies form.

      Artem's right. I was thinking about T2 - I fixed it now, though!

    Does this still not work on rooted phones? I haven't given it the time of day since reading that news the first time. 

    • squiddy20

      Still doesn't work on rooted phones. The Movies tile just disappears and is replaced by other content. :(

      • MAINEVENT23

         Odd. I've had the Movies tile on my HP TouchPad since movie rentals have first become available.

    So it's 500 or 600? :)

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Cameron Summerson

      It's 600. They added 500 with the Paramount deal.

        Oh, I see now :)

    Now when do we get to rent these on Google TV is the question? not that i already can them on Amazon but I really just want one service for all this stuff.

    • Scott Kennedy

      This.  I can rent them on my 5 inch screen (phone), and my 10 inch screen (tablet), and my 24 inch screen (desktop), but not my 55 inch screen (Google TV), which is the only place I really want to watch movies.  End result: piracy.  If I can't buy it easily where I want it, they're not going to get my money.

    I read Fox has an exclusive with HULU since they own part of it and wont bring it to any other market. So that makes the Playstore equal to itunes. Good job google.

  • Philvfernandez

    Great news but you still can't view movies from the Transformer tablet to an HD TV. I wish either Google or Asus would fix the bug!

  • Dwilks

    And not a single movie to be seen anywhere on the Australian Play store :'(

  • Spydie

    that comment about rooted phones is not true.  I have a rooted Prime tablet and rooted G-Note and can watch movies on both.

    Please make Play Movies and Play Books available in Denmark!
