Everything leaving Max (formerly HBO Max) in August 2023

Soldiers gather on a boat in Dunkirk.
Warner Bros.

All good things must come to an end: romances, seasons, even Twitter’s company name. (Seriously, Elon, X???). That’s never been more true for streaming content libraries. Every month, as more movies and shows are added to each of the many streamers out there, it seems just as much content leaves as well.

HBO Max isn’t immune to this vicious cycle, and in August 2023, a fair amount of films are leaving the service for an undetermined amount of time. From several Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies (no doubt to celebrate the new animated movie Mutant Mayhem) to the excellent Christopher Nolan movie Dunkirk to pretty much every Hellraiser movie ever made, there’s a lot of good stuff leaving, so check out the list below and try to watch some of these gems before they leave Max for good (or at least a long while).

Editor’s note: this list may not be comprehensive and is subject to change by the network/streamer.

What’s new on HBO and Max
Matthew Goode and Teresa Palmer in A Discovery of Witches.

As fans, we've become accustomed to the idea of characters crossing over from films and TV shows, but there's rarely been a crossover between streaming platforms. However, AMC+ and Warner Bros. Discovery have announced an unusual (and temporary) partnership that will bring a handful of AMC's original series to Max in September and October for no extra cost. Even users who subscribe to Max's ad tier will be able to watch shows like A Discovery of Witches, Interview with the Vampire, Fear the Walking Dead, Dark Winds, and Gangs of London. That's a great deal considering that things would be pretty quiet on Max without it.

Beyond the new movie titles coming to HBO and Max at the beginning of the month, there's not much else of interest. Fans of Discovery's reality-based TV series may disagree, however, as there's plenty of programming from Food Network and Travel Channel throughout the month if you're so inclined. This month will also see the debut of CNN Max, a live stream of news on Max itself from the CNN newsroom. Suddenly, Max is looking more and more like a cable channel disguised as a streaming service, but the news is definitely something that some users have asked for. You can find our complete list of what's coming to HBO and Max in September below. Titles without "HBO" in the listing will only be available on Max. DT's film and TV show recommendations are in bold.
