HBO Max Will Keep Its DC Comics Movies Available After All

href=”//screencrush.com/author/mattsinger/” rel=”author” title=”Matt Singer”>Matt SingerWarner Bros.

DC fans were understandably a little upset when they learned that just weeks into HBO Max’s existence, the new streaming service was already removing a bunch of its superhero titles. That was despite the fact that a whole subsection of the HBO Max, including a prominent tab on the home page, was supposed to be devoted to DC Comics and its stable of characters. After subscribers raised a stink, HBO decided to reverse course. Via press release, they’ve announced that “by popular demand” the DC Comics movies will be sticking around “through December 2020.”

The full list of Warner Bros. DC movies that will be available through the rest of the year on HBO Max is:

  • Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
  • Justice League
  • Suicide Squad
  • Superman: The Movie
  • Superman II
  • Superman III
  • Superman IV: The Quest For Peace
  • Superman: Unbound
  • Watchmen (movie)
  • Wonder Woman

WarnerMedia, which owns HBO Max and DC Comics is the awkward position of having two different streaming services with slightly overlapping content — because they also have a DC Universe streaming service that offers many of these same films, plus other TV series inspired by DC superheroes along with a selection of comic books. Limiting some superhero stuff to DC Universe might get a few people to subscribe to both services … but when you’ve already got people paying a hefty $15 a month for HBO Max, it’s tough to tell them they need to pay more if they want to watch Suicide Squad.

All Nine Episodes of ‘Watchmen’ Will Be Free This Weekend On HBO

href=”//screencrush.com/author/claireepting/” rel=”author” title=”Claire Epting”>Claire EptingHBO

If you haven’t gotten the chance to see Damon Lindelof’s series Watchmen, this weekend is your chance. HBO is offering all nine episodes of the show free for streaming from June 19 to 21 on HBO.com and Free On Demand. The decision was made as “an extension of the network’s content offering highlighting Black experiences, voices and storytellers.”

Based on the DC comic book series of the same name, Watchmen follows a group of masked vigilantes who are treated as outlaws in their society. The cast is led by Regina King as Angela Abar, a lead detective in the Tulsa Police Force. The first season of the show was met with widespread acclaim, with critics praising how the show tackled social and cultural issues while retaining the identity of its source material. Combine that with a dynamite ensemble cast and a stellar soundtrack, and you’ve got yourself a sophisticated drama that lives up to DC’s new reputation for bold, daring content.

HBO has also expanded their list of titles available for free sampling from June 19 to July 2. The added titles include Being Serena, Whoopi Goldberg presents Moms Mabley, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, and United Skates among others. HBO will also feature selected episodes of True Detective (S3/E1), The Shop (S2/E1, S2/E6), and The No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency (S1/E1).

So fire up your smart TV or laptop this weekend, and do a little binge watching. Even if you’ve already seen Watchmen, it doesn’t hurt to watch it again. C’mon, you deserve it!

The Biggest Movies Missing From HBO Max

href=”//screencrush.com/author/claireepting/” rel=”author” title=”Claire Epting”>Claire EptingWarner Bros.

HBO Max is officially up and running, and users have already noted the impressive (and slightly exhaustive) amount of content available on the streaming platform. HBO is owned by AT&T as a part of its WarnerMedia film and television division, which means that HBO Max features a large amount of Warner Bros. titles, including movies starring the heroes of DC Comics and all eight Harry Potter films. It's also the new home to several Studio Ghibli films, which have never been available for streaming in the US until now.

But you should know, HBO Max comes with a pretty price tag. At $15 a month, HBO Max offers more content than you can find on the HBO channel or HBO Go. Before making the switch, be aware that there are some surprising gaps in HBO Max's catalog. For example, the launching of DC Comics' own platform DC Universe has led to the absence of quite a few superhero films. Here are 10 popular movies currently not available for streaming on HBO Max.

What Is the Difference Between HBO and HBO Max?

href=”//screencrush.com/author/screencrushstaff/” rel=”author” title=”ScreenCrush Staff”>ScreenCrush StaffHBO

HBO Max, the new streaming service from WarnerMedia, is now open for business, with a large and varied catalogue of films and shows including Doctor Who, Rick and Morty, and every episode of Friends — plus the vast library of HBO original shows and films.

A lot of people we’ve spoken to, though, are still caught up on a few basic questions they want answered before they sign up. So let’s tackle them all one by one:

 

We’ll have lots more on HBO Max, including the full lineup of movies and shows, highlights to watch, and lots more in the days ahead.

‘Lovecraft Country’ Trailer: HBO’s Next Monster Hit

href=”//screencrush.com/author/mattsinger/” rel=”author” title=”Matt Singer”>Matt SingerHBO

The formidable team of J.J. Abrams and Jordan Peele are teaming up for HBO’s next big new series, Lovecraft Country. Based on the novel of the same name by Matt Ruff, the show imagines a world where H.P. Lovecraft’s iconic monsters collide with the Jim Crow-era in the American South. It sounds like a very interesting combination; the show is executive produced by Misha Green, who is also the showrunner.

Watch the first Lovecraft Country trailer right here:

The main cast includes Jonathan Majors, Jurnee Smollett-Bell from Birds of Prey, and Michael K. Williams. Here’s the show’s official synopsis:

HBO’s new drama series, LOVECRAFT COUNTRY is based on the 2016 novel by Matt Ruff of the same name. The series follows Atticus Freeman (Jonathan Majors) as he joins up with his friend Letitia (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) and his Uncle George (Courtney B. Vance) to embark on a road trip across 1950s Jim Crow America in search of his missing father (Michael Kenneth Williams). This begins a struggle to survive and overcome both the racist terrors of white America and the terrifying monsters that could be ripped from a Lovecraft paperback.

Lovecraft Country premieres on HBO this August. We will definitely be watching.

‘Hellraiser’ Series Coming to HBO, David Gordon Green To Direct

href=”//screencrush.com/author/claireepting/” rel=”author” title=”Claire Epting”>Claire EptingEntertainment Film Distributors

Clive Barker's 1987 British supernatural horror film franchise Hellraiser is getting the series treatment at HBO, with the first few episodes to be directed by Halloween's David Gordon Green.

According to Deadline, the series will be penned by Mark Verheiden (Battlestar Galactica, Daredevil, Heroes), and Michael Dougherty (X-Men United, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Trick r’ Treat). With a creative team so well-versed in horror, Hellraiser's small screen debut is bound to be hair-raisingly scary.

Based on Barker's novella The Hellbound Heart, Hellraiser involves the death and subsequent resurrection of Frank (Sean Chapman), who is brutally killed upon acquiring a haunted puzzle box. Years later, Frank's brother Larry (Andrew Robinson), his wife Julia (Clare Higgins), and their teenage daughter Kirsty (Ashley Lawrence) move into the same house where the incident took place.

There, Kirsty finds the puzzle box and meets the Cebonites, the carnal pleasure-seeking demons who appear whenever someone solves the puzzle. They are led by Pinhead (Doug Bradley), a ghost-faced Cebonite whose cranium is adorned with needles.

Hellraiser was followed by nine sequels, the most recent being Hellraiser: Judgement in 2018. The series will expand on past Hellraiser mythology, rather than serving as a reboot of the franchise. And you can bet your own head that Pinhead will be making an appearance. The show won't waste too much time dwelling on past events — instead, it will focus on continuing the Hellraiser universe. That means you'd better brush up on all 10 movies before Hellraiser hits HBO.
