This September, fall into your next favorite series or film as the change of the seasons brings a new slate of original programming to HBO Max to stream all month long.

Cry Macho HBO Max September 2021 The Nerdy Basement

From Warner Bros. Pictures comes director/producer Clint Eastwood’s uplifting and poignant drama “Cry Macho” (9/17). Based on the book by the same name, Eastwood stars as a one-time rodeo star and washed-up horse breeder who, in 1979, takes a challenging journey, during which the world-weary horseman finds unexpected connections and his own sense of redemption. Clint Eastwood fans can prepare for the film’s debut and celebrate his 50 years of filmmaking with classic Eastwood films including the “Dirty Harry” movies and “Pale Rider,” available to stream on HBO Max. Fans can see Eastwood’s top films and series currently featured in-app through HBO Max’s premier Guest Curator program.

Malignant HBO Max September 2021 The Nerdy Basement

September also brings “Malignant” (9/10), the latest creation from “Conjuring” Universe architect James Wan (“Aquaman,” “Furious 7”) to HBO Max.  The film marks director Wan’s return to his roots with this new original horror thriller. In the film, Madison is paralyzed by shocking visions of grisly murders, and her torment worsens as she discovers that these waking dreams are in fact terrifying realities.

Both “Cry Macho” and “Malignant” will be available in theaters and on HBO Max the same day. Streaming only on the $14.99/month Ad-Free HBO Max plan for 31 days from their theatrical release.

A stellar line-up of original programming arrives in the month including the limited series “Scenes From A Marriage” (9/12). A captivating re-examination of the dilemmas probed by the original, the five-episode limited series, starring Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain, explores love, hatred, desire, monogamy, marriage, and divorce through the lens of a contemporary American couple. 

The third season of “Doom Patrol” (9/23), will also make its way to the platform during the month along with “Adventure Time: Distant Lands – Wizard City” (9/2), documentary series “Nuclear Family” (9/26), and the finales of “Sweet Life: Los Angeles” (Finale 9/2, Reunion Special 9/9), from Emmy® & Golden Globe® nominee Issa Rae,  and critically acclaimed comedy series “The Other Two” (9/23) starring Heléne Yorke, Drew Tarver, and Ken Marino.

A-List films to binge this month include “Promising Young Woman,” ”Those Who Wish Me Dead,” “Mortal Kombat,” and “News of the World.” The “Harry Potter” films will also be sure to enchant this month when all eight movies return to HBO Max. 

Families can enjoy the new HBO Max original series through Cartoonito, a new preschool programming block built to support each child’s unique potential. Series premiering with the launch include “Little Ellen,” a brand new 2D-animated children’s show that explores the world through the eyes of a hilarious and unpredictable seven-year-old Ellen DeGeneres, and the second season of “The Not-Too-Late Show with Elmo.” Additional Kids and Family series premiering during the month include the third season of series “Tig n’ Seek,” and the series premiere of “Yabba-Dabba Dinosaurs.”

On September 9th, HBO Max will launch its first look-back podcast, “Band of Brothers” in honor of the limited series’ 20th anniversary. Hosted by Roger Bennett, the pod will kick off with a fascinating interview with executive producer Tom Hanks and will feature interviews with additional former castmates over the course of several weeks.
