What’s Streaming on HBO Max in August 2020

An American Pickle, Lovecraft Country, and the last of Harry Potter

American Pickle Trailer
American Pickle (HBO Max)

    HBO Max has been conquering our summer quarantine, and they’re closing out the season in style this August. Below, Consequence of Sound has put together a full list of new TV and film titles heading to the network.

    For exclusives, subscribers can look forward to Seth Rogen’s An American Pickle, the series premiere of Lovecraft Country, new doc Yusuf Hawkins: Storm Over Brooklyn, and finales for Perry Mason, I’ll Be Gone in the Dark, and I May Destroy You.

    For moviegoers looking for a good marathon, you might want to Billy Madison your way through Hogwarts as all eight Harry Potter movies will be leaving the network by the end of the month. That’s right. No more Azkaban, no more Chamber, no more Goblet.


    Though, if magic ain’t your bag, you might try heading to Gotham City with just about every Batman flick (short of The Dark Knight Rises), throw a House Party (or three), or grab some gold (or visit space) with Leprechaun.


    Of course, we have to remember, it’s not TV, it’s HBO, and every weekend subscribers get new premieres of last year’s biggest flicks: Jojo Rabbit, Richard Jewell, and Birds of Prey round out this month’s slate.

    Check out the entire list below and stock up on chocolate frogs or Bertie Botts Every Flavour Beans. To round out your summer streaming sessions, check out what’s hitting Disney+, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, Shudder, and Netflix.
