What's New on HBO Max in August 2021

It’s been about five years since the release of Suicide Squad, the DC Extended Universe’s attempt to make a “funny” superhero film in response to the success of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. That didn’t exactly work—though the film made bank, director David Ayer objected to the studio’s attempt to lighten the tone of what he’d already made through editing, so Warner Bros. responded by straight up hiring GotG’s James Gunn to make the not-quite-a-sequel, which launches on HBO Max on August 5.

I have no dog in this fight (I haven’t seen Ayer’s movie or read any of the comics), but I have to admit the trailer for Gunn’s take, which is packed end-to-end with cartoonish mayhem and features some of the weirdest anti-heroes to appear onscreen this side of The Tick, looks pretty dang good.

That’s not the only simultaneous theatrical/HBO Max premiere to look forward to in August; we’re also getting Reminiscence (August 20), a Hugh Jackman-starring sci-fi thriller in which the former X-Man plays “a private investigator of the mind.”

It’s a good month for TV series too, with the premieres of a new urban streetwear-based reality competition show in The Hype (Aug. 12), a hilariously titled reality dating show in FBoy Island (Aug. 12), and season 2 of The Other Two, the funniest new series from 2020.

Here’s the list of everything coming to (and leaving) HBO Max in August 2021. Titles with (HBO) next to them are available on HBO and HBO Max; everything else is exclusive to HBO Max.
