In terms of what's coming to HBO Max, September 2021 has quite a lot to live up to.

After all, summer 2021 on the streamer gave us crowd-pleasing blockbusters like In The Heights, The Suicide Squad, and Space Jam 2, not to mention much-buzzed-about TV series including The White Lotus and the so-bad-it's-good reality show F Boy Island

But with the latest crop of content additions to the streamer, fall is already giving summer a run for its money. Two films will have same-day releases in theaters and on HBO Max—Clint Eastwood's neo-Western Cry Macho and James Wan's creepy horror flick Malignant—and some old movie favorites will be getting some HBO love, including the entire Harry Potter film franchise. 

Plus, if you need something new on your binge-list, the TV end of things sees Scenes From a Marriage, a new limited series starring two of our faves, Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain, as a struggling married couple in a modern retelling of the classic Ingmar Bergman series.

Take a look at the full list of HBO Max September 2021 offerings below and mark those calendars!
