    Was browsing the iTunes store and noticed that there's now the option to purchase some movies in HD (like Punisher: War Zone and Transporter 3). Has anyone tried to purchase HD movies in iTunes?

    Wow I'm surprised this happened with no announcement.

    And incase it disappears I attached a screen shot.

    I think I'll wait for the Apple TV upgrade so that I don't have to pay AGAIN to get them changed to 1080p from 720p, though.

    Wow, this is huge, although we've seen similar things with movies like Ironman only to find it was an error. In this case, however, I hope it's true!

    They've included more this time... before it was simply a misplaced HD logo. This time they have made substantial changes to the interface, and even included things like file size differences.

    Hopefully it's not an error, it looks like you can pre-order the new Bond movie in HD too

    Yes it does as it say's in the smaller pic I attached above. Just like TV shows you get an iPod friendly version as well.

    They even have some movies now for pre-order in HD. Twilight and Quantum Of Solace for example.

    Looks like it's been removed. I only see a version for $9.99 and it's not HD.

    I'm not seeing HD versions at all.

    The ones the OP mentioned. Only transporter 3 is HD

    Well if it has really been removed already, I think we can all say fairly confidently that it should reappear sometime in the near future. The programming is there and ready for the press release to be posted.

    EDIT: Looks like I spoke too soon!

    No problem, it reminds me of when they went to HD TV shows. You had to upgrade iTunes to be able to view them.
