The best HBO Max movies leaving in August 2022

The Dark Knight

Christopher Nolan’s gritty take on Batman is widely considered one of the all-time superhero flick serial in the genre. Both The Night Knight and its predecessor, Batman Begins, are leaving HBO Max, though nosotros expect them to return at some point since they’re Warner Bros. movies based on a DC property. And so over again, Nolan has fallen out with the studio, and then who knows? Take your risk to watch or rewatch while you tin.

The Dark Knight is the peak of his trilogy, featuring an Oscar-winning performance by the late Heath Ledger as the Joker opposite Christian Bale’s Batman.  Ledger embodies the villain’south disturbing, psychopathic malevolence with nearly frightening clarity. Equally the Joker sows anarchy and terror in Gotham City, Batman grapples with the moral complexities of vigilantism and whether the ends always justify the means.

Terminal Destination

All 5 Concluding Destination films are exiting HBO Max this calendar month, so yous could say the franchise hasn’t found its final destination (bah dum dum). Whether they go to another streaming service is unclear, since the IP belongs to the Warner Brothers Discovery. For at present, at to the lowest degree, they’re taking the off ramp — so binge while you tin can.

The offset movie, which came out in 2000, follows several high school students who narrowly avoid boarding a airplane that ends upward crashing. They survived thank you to premonition by Alex (Devon Sawa), but Death isn’t gear up to permit them go on living. Ane by i, they are killed in a series of unusual accidents. The sequels feature new characters facing similar predicaments, equally Death hunts everyone who manages to escape its grasp.

Harry Potter

Watching the Harry Potter movies in order has been a tricky task, no thank you to the convoluted corporate dealmaking betwixt Warner Brothers (the studio that made the films) and Universal (which owns the idiot box airing rights to the Wizarding World). Now that both studios have sibling streamers, the Harry Potter films have been pinging back and forth betwixt HBO Max and Peacock — and sometimes available on both at the same time.

Now, though, the saga is disapparating from HBO Max (while remaining on Peacock). It will likely return at some point. Unless you want to sign up for Peacock, accept this concluding opportunity to runway Harry, Hermione and Ron’south adventures at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, starting with Wizard’due south Rock.

Ocean’s Eleven

George! Brad! Julia! Matt! Ocean’s Eleven is the kind of star-studded, old-schoolhouse picture show rarely seen since, well, the Rat Pack’s 1960 original. Not only does it feature some of Hollywood’southward biggest names, it’s a delightful, glitzy antic that is just pure fun. George Clooney leads the new pack equally con man Danny Body of water, who assembles a team to avenge a grudge against a casino owner, win back his ex-wife (Julia Roberts) and, of course, become rich in the process.

Sea’s Eleven and its two sequels, Ocean’s Twelve and Bounding main’south Xiii, are all perfect, easy entertainment for movie night. HBO Max and arctic before all 3 films depart the service.

The Underworld franchise has attracted a fervent fanbase, despite dismal reviews and little-to-no cultural affect. The devotees are drawn to a commanding pb performance by Kate Beckinsale, an aesthetic of black leather and metal, propulsive action sequences and the fantasy mainstay of vampires vs. werewolves. Beckinsale’s icy Selene is a vampire warrior who hunts Lycans. Her perspective changes when her human beloved interest (Scott Speedman) is bitten, putting them in the crosshairs of both sides.

Only iii of 5 (aye, five!) Underworld movies are available to stream on HBO Max and they will soon go unavailable. The franchise is endemic by Sony, so nosotros have a feeling the rights to some or all of them have been sold to some other bidder for a time. Go your “Matrix but with vampires” ready now.
