Several high-profile films that hit theaters earlier this fall will be available on iTunes in December, allowing those who missed the movies on the big screen — or enjoyed them so much they'd like to own the movies — to rent or purchase them from the comfort of their own home.

Sicario, Hotel Transylvania 2, Pawn Sacrifice, He Named Me Malala, Pan and The Walk are just some of the titles that will be available for digital download this month. Paramount's early-VOD releases Scout's Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse and Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension are also set to hit iTunes.

In addition to Malala, Oscar-hopeful documentaries Meet the Patels, The Look of Silence and Janis: Little Girl Blue will also be on iTunes in December, with Amy Berg's Janis Joplin documentary on iTunes shortly after hitting theaters.

On the TV side, iTunes is offering a free pre-air download of the Rob Lowe- and Gabrielle Union-voiced The Lion Guard and a free download of the series premiere of NBC's Superstore.
