You can mount it as a sub-directory, for example I have /home/bern on one partition, and /home/bern/photography is on another.

If you want to mount the new drive as /storage/movies you'll first have to mount it somewhere else and copy over the existing data.
Have a look at this hard drive upgrade article, it contains all the steps you'll need to follow.
