HBO Max is one of the youngest streaming services in the Netherlands. However, this service is already very popular in our country and that is not surprising given all the good content. FilmTotal has today listed the top five movies to appear on HBO Max this year.
The advantage of the streaming age is that Hollywood studios today put their movies online soon after the theatrical release. Therefore, HBO Max offers a lot of recent movies.
Superhero fans could treat themselves this year to The Batman and Black Adam, among others. The first is a one-off project from director Matt Reeves; that second more traditional show. Both movies are very entertaining.
From thriller to biopic
Don’t Worry Darling, because of all the gossip, has to be one of the most talked about movies this year. Also, this thriller with a first-rate cast is simply a great success.
Austin Butler turned heads as Elvis in director Baz Luhrmann’s biopic of the same name. The chances are high that the actor will get an Oscar nomination for that role.
Finally, a title perhaps less well known, but one that should not go unnoticed: Kimi. This exciting film with Zoë Kravitz appears on a surprising number of favorites lists and is therefore a must see.
