HBO Max Announces Over 100 New Movies/TV Shows For April

x

Spring is nearly here and HBO Max is celebrating by adding a ton of content to mark the new season. April will see the WarnerMedia streaming platform deliver over 100 fresh movies and TV shows, ranging from a load of classic licensed additions to a few must-see original titles. Namely, a couple of great series premieres and a hugely anticipated blockbuster based on an iconic franchise.

HBO is adding a boatload of films on the first day of the month, so you’d be a fool not to try and binge as many as you can in one day. There’s a range of bonafide classics in there, too, like Dirty Harry, Easy Rider, Goodfellas and Nicolas Cage’s Ghost Rider – wait, scratch that last one. Speaking of bad superhero flicks, though, Ryan Reynolds’ Green Lantern drops the same day. You can also rewatch the original Space Jam ahead of the belated sequel hitting HBO Max this summer.

Skipping ahead to the 10th, and that’s when The New Mutants – the final movie in Fox’s X-Men franchise – debuts. The next day then delivers the series premiere of The Nevers, the Victorian set fantasy about a group of superpowered women. Unfortunately this one’s had a bit of negative press in the run-up to its arrival, as creator Joss Whedon stepped away from production after all the controversy surrounding him of late.

The highlight of the month drops on the 16th, meanwhile. Yes, the new Mortal Kombat arrives in theaters and on HBO Max – for 31 days – from that date. A reimagining of the beloved video game universe, it stars Lewis Tan as a mixed martial artist who must recruit a team of fighters to defend the planet. On the opposite end of the spectrum is Kate Winslet drama Mare of Easttown, featuring the actress as a small-town Pennsylvania detective investigating a grisly murder.
