hboaugust 1627488640966 V9XhhE

August 2021 will finally see the release of The Suicide Squad on HBO Max – James Gunn’s superhero action adventure film that has some of DC’s most degenerate delinquents joining a do-or-die mission to hopefully get them out of prison. However, that’s not all for DC fans, as season 3 of Titans will also premiere in August and will see our heroes drawn to Gotham City to reunite with old friends and face new threats.

Check out our video review for The Suicide Squad in below:

On the movie front, Hugh Jackman’s Reminiscence will debut on August 20 and tells the story of a private investigator of the mind who helps his clients access lost memories. For fans of Dinosaurs and John Williams’ music, next month will also bring all three original Jurassic Park films to the service.

Sports fans will be treated to the latest season of Hard Knocks, and this year the Dallas Cowboys are the star of the show. There are also some great documentaries arriving, including Eyes on the Prize: Hallowed Ground, a special that honors Henry Hampton’s Eyes on the Prize and “conjures ancestral memories, activates the radical imagination and explores the profound journey for Black liberation through the voices of the movement.”

Check out the slideshow gallery below for the highlights of HBO Max’s August 2021 offerings, followed by the full list:
