NEWS PROVIDED BY
This August, sit back and relax with a phenomenal slate of new original series and blockbuster films on HBO Max.
From writer/director James Gunn comes Warner Bros. Pictures’ superhero action-adventure “The Suicide Squad,” featuring a collection of the most degenerate delinquents in the DC lineup—including Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin and everyone’s favorite psycho, Harley Quinn—who will do anything to get out of prison—even join the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X on a do-or-die mission.
August also brings action thriller “Reminiscence,” starring Hugh Jackman, Rebecca Ferguson and Thandiwe Newton. Nick Bannister (Jackman), a private investigator of the mind, navigates the darkly alluring world of the past by helping his clients access lost memories. Living on the fringes of the sunken Miami coast, his life is forever changed when he takes on a new client, Mae (Ferguson). A simple matter of lost and found becomes a dangerous obsession. Both Warner Bros. Pictures films will be available in theaters and on HBO Max the same day. Streaming only on the $14.99/month Ad-Free HBO Max plan for 31 days from their theatrical release.
In addition to “The Suicide Squad,” HBO Max delivers even more DC Universe content with season three of the popular superhero series “Titans,” following young heroes from across the DC Universe as they come of age and find where they belong. This month brings documentary “Obama: In Pursuit of a More Perfect Union,” “Furry Friends Forever: Elmo Gets A Puppy,” the premiere of the streetwear competition series “The Hype,” the new unscripted series from Issa Rae “Sweet Life: Los Angeles,” season two of “The Other Two,” which makes its transition from Comedy Central to HBO Max with all new episodes, documentary special “Eyes on the Prize: Hallowed Ground,” and comedy special “Marlon Wayans: You Know What It Is.” HBO Sports and NFL Films’ sports reality series “Hard Knocks: The Dallas Cowboys” debuts in the month, with an unfiltered all-access look at what it takes to make it in the National Football League. The weekly companion podcast, The Hard Knocks Podcast, hosted by NFL Network’s Good Morning Football co-host Peter Schrager, will present a new edition for five consecutive weeks and take fans behind the scenes breaking down each episode with former players, analysts, and people on the ground at the Dallas Cowboys training camp right now.
A-list films including the “Jurassic Park” trilogy, “Magic Mike XXL,” “Inception,” “Malcolm X,” “The Shawshank Redemption,” “Requiem for a Dream,” and the “Sex and the City” movie all debut in the month. Additional titles debuting include sitcom “A Different World” and documentary “Betrayal at Attica.”
