Some collections seeing major price drops
Apple is hosting a rare US sale on iTunes movie collections. In all 25 collections have been discounted, in both their SD and HD formats. The biggest deal may be the Harry Potter Complete Collection, which includes all eight movies but costs only $10. Normally the collection would cost over $125.
More highlights include the non-extended cut of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy -- also priced at $10, versus a standard $45 -- and the Coppola restoration of The Godfather Trilogy, which is only $20. Other collections on sale include ones like Back to the Future, The Matrix, Die Hard, and Austin Powers.
Apple will regularly put individual movies on sale, but tends not to do sales of its bundles. The company is presumably trying to draw more attention to the movie section of iTunes, which is significantly less popular than its music offerings.
