Five Hollywood studios have opened an internet site that will allow people to download films legally.
Movielink.com has been set up in an attempt to stop piracy of major Hollywood films.
Warner Bros, Paramount Pictures, Universal Studios, Sony Pictures Entertainment and Metro Goldwyn Mayer will offer more than 170 titles from the website's launch next week.
According to Reuters the films will include recent Oscar winner A Beautiful Mind, alongside classics such as Breakfast at Tiffany's and other recent blockbusters including Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone and Men in Black.
Users will be able to download the film of their choice to their hard drive. They will have 30 days to watch it, after which they will have 24 hours before it is automatically deleted from their computer.
Prices are expected to start from $1.99 (£1.30) for older films, going up to $4.95 (£3.25).
Other measures will be used to make sure users cannot swap them over the internet.
