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.

If you have to watch one (HBO) Max movie in June 2024, stream this one
Dakota Johnson in Am I OK?

June is a blockbuster month for HBO and Max, boasting the highly anticipated second season of House of the Dragon, Julio Torres' whimsical Fantasmas, and the intriguing docu-series Ren Faire.

Am I OK? is a dramedy that stars Dakota Johnson as Lucy, a woman who slowly comes to the realization that she’s queer. With her best friend Jane (Sonoya Mizuno) by her side, Lucy embarks on a relatable journey of self-discovery, navigating the often-awkward world of dating and learning to embrace her true self.
