- Get Out (Cinemax) —This funny, frightening and thought-provoking horror/comedy film — a 2018 Academy Award winner for Best Original Screenplay — follows interracial couple Chris and Rose on a meet-the-parents trip to Upstate New York. As the weekend progresses, African-American Chris makes a series of shocking discoveries about his white hosts that lead to a horrific truth that he never could have anticipated.
- Random Acts of Flyness (HBO) —Artist and short-film director Terence Nance’s late-night series, set to premiere at midnight on Aug. 4, has been described as a “fluid, mind-melting stream-of-conscious response to the contemporary American mediascape.” Each episode will consist of a subversive collection of interconnected vignettes that examine the spirit of our times and promise to start a real conversation about them.
- Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (HBO) — In this crime drama that took home a pair of 2018 Academy Awards (Frances McDormand for Best Actress and Sam Rockwell for Best Supporting Actor), a truth-seeking mother — frustrated after months pass without an arrest in her daughter’s murder — boldly challenges the local authorities via a trio of billboard messages. The mother is determined to hold her ground after the police and most of her small Missouri town align against her in the wake of the defiant move.
- Murder on the Orient Express (HBO) — This mystery drama based on the Agatha Christie novel by the same name features an all-star cast that includes the likes of Kenneth Brannagh, Johnny Depp, Judi Dench, Penelope Cruz, Willem Dafoe and Michelle Pfeiffer. Set in the 1930s on the famed trans-European train after which the film and book are named, the story follows celebrated detective Hercule Poirot as he races to catch a murderer before he or she strikes again — and everyone seems to be a suspect.
- Insecure (Season Premiere on HBO) — This critically acclaimed comedy/drama kicks off its third season in August as it continues to follow the often-awkward experiences of best friends Issa and Molly, two modern-day African-American women struggling to navigate their professional and personal lives in Los Angeles.
- Kong: Skull Island (Cinemax) — Loaded with eye-popping visual effects, this latest installment in one of the silver screen’s top monster franchises reimagines the origins of one of cinema’s most beloved beasts. When a diverse team of scientists and explorers ventures to an uncharted island deep in the Pacific, an epic battle between man and beast is unleashed when the crew unknowingly crosses into the domain of the mighty Kong.
- Darkest Hour (HBO) — See for yourself why Gary Oldman won the Oscar for Best Actor with his work in this historical drama set at the onset of World War II. Playing newly appointed British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, Oldman is nearly unrecognizable as his character wrestles with a decision that will shape the future of his nation and the world — whether to fight against a fast-advancing Adolf Hitler or negotiate with his brutal German regime.
- Going in Style (Cinemax) — This heist comedy film starring Oscar winners Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and Alana Arkin sees a trio of aging lifelong friends — formerly upstanding citizens and law-abiding family men — desperately plot to rob a bank when their hard-earned pension fund becomes a casualty of corporate restructuring. Faced with the potential of their loved ones having to endure extreme hardships, the three set out to bend the law and reclaim what is rightfully theirs.
- Father Figures (HBO) — This comedy starring Owen Wilson and Ed Helms follows the adventures of fraternal twin brothers who learn that their biological father — despite their mother’s ages-old claims that he died before their birth — is actually alive and well. Hilarity ensues as the two try to track down their actual dad among a lengthy list of paternal possibilities.
