In a post on Google+ this evening, Google has announced that starting today users in the United States can now pre-oder feature films from Google Play. This means that customers can get their copy of movies before they’re released digitally or on DVD to the rest of the United States.

Pre-order movies have arrived on Google Play! Excited about an awesome big-screen blockbuster? Now you can reserve your copy of box-office hits before they’re released digitally or on DVD!

Currently Google says that 15 movies are available for pre-order, including titles such as Lucy, 22 Jump Street, and Guardians of the Galaxy. Prices range from $12.99 to $19.99.

For those interested in pre-ordering movies via Google Play, the company has broken down the rather simple process into 6 steps:

1. Check out the list of available pre-orders below. 2. Choose the title you want and click the pre-order button. 3. If you are new to Google Play you will need to enter credit card details, but your card will not be charged until the movie is delivered. 4. You will receive an email receipt, and the pre-order will be added to “My Movies.” Clicking on your pre-ordered movie will take you to the latest info about it, including release date. 5. On the day the movie becomes available, you will receive an email confirming your purchase and the delivery of the movie to your library. 6. Then it’s yours to own and enjoy!

You can view the full list of movies currently available for pre-order right here on Google Play. Google says that it hopes to expand the pre-order capabilities to more countries soon.
