'Harry Potter' Is Already Leaving HBO Max, Three Months After the Service Launched

The eight Harry Potter movies are currently streaming on the new service HBO Max, but they soon will be removed.

HBO Max launched on May 27 and it was a surprise to fans that the Harry Potter films were included as the company had not previously advertised that it would be on there.

The Harry Potter movies will be removed from HBO Max at the end of August, so you have a little over a month to watch the films, according to Deadline. It’s not currently clear if they will be streamed elsewhere.

The first three Jurassic Park movies are also being removed from HBO Max and they will debut on Netflix on August 1. Those films are also being removed from Peacock.

Peacock just revealed a list of films that are being removed as well.

'The Batman' Companion TV Series Coming to HBO Max!

The Batman is getting an accompanying TV series.

HBO Max gave a series commitment to a DC Comics original drama set in the Gotham City police department from The Batman filmmaker Matt Reeves and Boardwalk Empire creator Terence Winter, Deadline reported Friday (July 10).

The series is “set in the world Reeves is creating for The Batman feature and will build upon the film’s examination of the anatomy of corruption in Gotham City, launching a new Batman universe across multiple platforms. The series will extend the world established in the movie and further explore the myriad of complex characters of Gotham.”

“This is an amazing opportunity, not only to expand the vision of the world I am creating in the film, but to explore it in the kind of depth and detail that only a longform format can afford — and getting to work with the incredibly talented Terence Winter, who has written so insightfully and powerfully about worlds of crime and corruption, is an absolute dream,” Matt Reeves said.

It’s not yet known if Batman himself will be among the show’s characters.

“Our collaboration with Warner Bros. and DC allows us to elaborate and grow fan connections across these powerful brands for years to come. This is Batman as most audiences have never seen before, and we know fans will want to spend more time in this new world inspired by the film,” said HBO Max exec Kevin Reilly.

The Batman, the movie, is set to be released in October of 2021. If you haven’t seen it yet, watch Robert Pattinson‘s screen test in the iconic outfit!

Seth Rogen Plays Dual Roles in 'An American Pickle' Trailer - Watch Now!

The trailer for Seth Rogen‘s upcoming movie An American Pickle has been released!

The film is based on Simon Rich’s New Yorker novella and stars Rogen as Herschel Greenbaum, a struggling laborer who immigrates to America in 1920 with dreams of building a better life for his beloved family.

One day, while working at his factory job, Herschel falls into a vat of pickles and is brined for 100 years. The brine preserves him perfectly and when he emerges in present-day Brooklyn, he finds that he hasn’t aged a day. But when he seeks out his family, he is troubled to learn that his only surviving relative is his great-grandson, Ben Greenbaum (also played by Rogen), a mild-mannered computer coder whom Herschel can’t even begin to understand.

Also starring in the movie are Sarah Snook and Jorma Taccone.

An American Pickle premieres on HBO Max on August 6!

Make sure to check out the reason why Seth‘s Instagram comments went viral last month.

HBO Max Will Bring Back 'Gone With The Wind' With a Special Introduction

Gone With The Wind will be back on HBO Max, with a few changes.

The movie, which caused a stir after fans picked up on problematic depictions of slavery and the Civil War-era South, was pulled from the streaming service over the weekend.

Director John Ridley wrote a feature for the LA Times, calling attention to the movie for its’ racist themes.

HBO Max is planning to re-release the movie with a special introduction by black scholar and television host Jacqueline Stewart.

Jacqueline, who hosts Silent Sunday Nights on TCM, wrote a letter about her introduction for the iconic 1939 movie.

“For me, this is an opportunity to think about what classic films can teach us,” she wrote for CNN. “Right now, people are turning to movies for racial re-education, and the top-selling books on Amazon are about anti-racism and racial inequality. If people are really doing their homework, we may be poised to have our most informed, honest, and productive national conversations yet about Black lives on screen and off.”

There is no set date for when the movie will be back on the service.

If you didn’t see, this anchor found it ridiculous that the streaming service pulled the movie at all.
