HBO Max really wants to take the lead as the best streaming service—and, honestly, it’s going to be tough to beat it this spring. While most of the country still doesn’t have access to movie theaters (and having movie theaters open in certain cities doesn’t mean it’s actually safe yet!), HBO Max is taking us on a nostalgic ride with two of the year’s most awaited movies, Mortal Kombat and Godzilla Vs. Kong.

We’re also getting tons of new series like the Black Mirror-esque Made For Love; Kate Winslet’s limited series Mare Of Easttown; and the Victorian dramatic series The Nevers. In addition to new content, there are tons of beloved TV shows and movies heading to HBO Max, like Space Jam (to prep for the arrival of the sequel), Happy Endings, Boogie Nights, Cast Away, Can’t Buy Me Love, Goodfellas, The Warriors (Director’s Cut), and more.
