HBO Max Announces Over 130 New Movies/TV Shows For August

An American Pickle

HBO Max is continuing to pull from Warner Bros.’ incredible back catalogue of movies, with August bringing a huge number of new titles to the streaming service. With over 130 new pieces of content, the list of upcoming arrivals encompasses classic films of all kinds, from Oscar winners to comedies, horrors to family pics and, of course, tons of blockbusters.

A highlight for many users will probably be the glut of Batman films coming to HBO Max at the start of the month. Every cinematic outing for the Caped Crusader from 1989’s Batman starring Michael Keaton to 2008’s The Dark Knight with Christian Bale (which just celebrated its 12th anniversary this weekend) are going up on the site. Sticking in Gotham, both seasons of Harley Quinn are also coming to HBO Max, following their original release on DC Universe.

Elsewhere on August 1st, some of the more notable new titles include Before Sunrise and its sequel, Blade Runner: The Final Cut, Elf, Interview with a Vampire, two Kung-Fu Pandas, Ocean’s Eleven, Wedding Crashers and Yes Man.

An American Pickle

As for what’s due on HBO, subscribers may want to catch recent releases Jojo Rabbit, which earned an Oscar for director Taika Waititi’s Adapted Screenplay, and Birds of Prey, which didn’t break any records at the box office but was warmly received by critics and has developed an ardent online fandom. And again for DC fans, don’t miss the season 2 finale of Doom Patrol, premiering on August 6th.

Unfortunately, there’s also some big titles leaving HBO Max next month, too. All of the Harry Potter movies will be pulled from the site on the 25th, and the last day of the month will see a huge cull including both Kill Bills and, worst of all, The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie. Still, getting some great new titles and losing some others is just the way it goes with streaming sites and many of them could well return in the future.

Tell us, though, what are you looking forward to watching on HBO Max next month? Let us know in the comments section below.
