Let’s get this out (ha) of the way up front: Get Out is coming to HBO NOW in November. There. Now you have something to say when your relatives ask you to share what you’re thankful for this year before shoving turkey into your face. There are several other fun new titles coming to HBO’s streaming platform next month, like The LEGO Batman Movie and Kong: Skull Island — but if we’re being honest here, Jordan Peele’s social horror thriller is the most exciting of the bunch.
It’s summer, which means it’s the perfect time of the year to stay inside all day and watch TV. Just kidding (mostly). Vitamin D is good for you. But if you find yourself with a long weekend or coming down with that dreaded of all ills, the summer cold, the one thing you won’t have to be is bored, thanks to modern technology and streaming services. And for you lucky who subscribe to HBO NOW, we have the full list of everything coming to the service this June, including new seasons of Veep, The Leftovers, T.J. Miller’s new standup special, and recent releases like Krampus and Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas — on HBO NOW, that is. This December, the network is gifting subscribers with several great new additions, including a few of this year’s most enjoyable films. So whether you missed Hail, Caesar! and Midnight Special in theaters, or you’ve been dying to give them another watch, HBO NOW’s upcoming slate has you covered — and then some.
Vice Principals Season 1 may be ending next month, but HBO NOW’s September slate also includes the series premiere of the network’s latest comedy offering, High Maintenance. For those interested in catching up with (or revisiting) newer films, HBO’s big September movie additions include The Revenant and Steve Jobs.
If you’re looking for something to fill the Game of Thrones-shaped void in your life, there are plenty of new viewing options coming to HBO NOW in August, including two Oscar-nominated dramas and the finale of The Night Of — which is as good a reminder as any to catch up on HBO’s latest acclaimed series. Next month also brings a solid lineup of great films, including The Aviator, Scarface and One Hour Photo, among others.
Game of Thrones Season 6 comes to an end in June (so soon!), but luckily HBO NOW has plenty of viewing options to help keep you occupied during your annual mourning period. Next month brings the premiere of HBO’s new weekly series Any Given Wednesday with Bill Simmons, hosted by the renowned sports analyst, author and ESPN vet. Cinephiles, meanwhile, will be thrilled to see the addition of Ridley Scott’s The Martian and (maybe) David Cronenberg’s Maps to the Stars. But more importantly, the epic Problem Child trilogy is coming to HBO NOW in June, giving you a chance to engage in a fierce familial debate over the finer points of Junior’s schemes — surely a more contentious topic than the resurrection of Jon Snow.
Most subscribers will still be focused on Game of Thrones, but for those who don’t spend every waking second thinking about Westeros, May’s offerings on HBO NOW include some high quality moviefilms. Noah Baumbach fans should make sure they catch Mistress America starring Greta Gerwig, and Wachowskis partisans can watch their bonkers sci-fi movie Jupiter Ascending. Plus, masochists of all shapes and sizes can watch the disastrous Fantastic Four reboot. There’s literally something for everyone!
