‘Space Jam’? ‘Dune’? What movies are coming to HBO Max in August?
Look out for these HBO Max movies coming in August – they’ll surely be a lot of fun for the whole family. There’s already such an excellent movie selection when it comes to HBO Max movies, but in the month of August, that selection is about to grow quite a bit. Other streaming networks like Netflix & Hulu add great new content all the time, but the HBO Max movies coming soon might make paying subscribers reconsider where they’re tuning in.
The Suicide Squad
On August 6th, The Suicide Squad will be added to the HBO Max movies list for DC fans to enjoy. The original Suicide Squad movie was released in 2016 but this time around, James Gunn has put together a highly anticipated sequel in the way he wanted to see things go. The movie stars Margot Robbie, Idris Elba, and John Cena in leading roles. This is one HBO Max movie that’s going to gain a lot of attention.
According to The New York Times, Gunn spoke of his upcoming release, explaining: “There’s dark humor in it, but the emotional part is there, too. I feel as if I was communicating my whole being.” There’s a lot to look forward to with this movie.
Great news, Hugh Jackman fans, Reminiscence will be added to the HBO Max movie list on August 20th. Jackman is the leading actor in the movie alongside Lisa Joy. The dramatic film tells the story of a dedicated private investigator who is somehow able to dive into the memories of the people he’s looking into. He ends up getting emotionally wrapped up with a client on the job.
The Great Gatsby
On August 1st, The Great Gatsby will also be added to the HBO Max movie list. The remake of such a classic movie, based on the F. Scott Fitzgerald novel, was a hit in 2013 and still receives a lot of respect to this day. Starring Leonardo DiCaprio in the leading role, Isla Fisher & Carey Mulligan are two of the other main actors in this major movie, set in the 1920s.
All My Life
All My Life is a romantic movie that can be streamed on HBO Max once August finally arrives. The movie is about two people named Jennifer Carter & Solomon Chau who are madly in love with each other. They have fun together and seem to get along in such a playful & carefree manner. They’re ready to start their lives together and things are running smoothly – until they find out he’s dying of terminal cancer.
Instead of being able to enjoy life and the newfound giddy romance they’ve started, they must start focusing on his deteriorating health. Their friends & family come up with a thoughtful plan to help the couple get through such a sad situation.
Space Jam: A New Legacy
Space Jam: A New Legacy landed on HBO Max already on July 16th, and it will remain there for people to watch at home for thirty-one days. If people would rather watch the movie on the big screen at the theater, they have that option. Otherwise, they’re able to watch at home with friends & family instead if that makes them more comfortable. The basketball-centered movie stars Lebron James in the leading role.
James gets sucked into a video game world of animation where he must play a game of basketball against a jealous villain in order to get his son back. He trains a team of unlikely athletes including Bugs Bunny & Daffy Duck so they can come out on top on the basketball court.
Watching Dune on HBO Max isn’t going to happen anytime soon. It’s not being added to HBO Max until October 22nd which is still a few months away. The intense movie stars Zendaya & Timothee Chalamet in leading roles.
