HBO Max Pulls Six Warner Bros. Exclusive Streaming Films Quietly


All eyes in the media world are now on Warner Bros. Discovery and whatever moves they are ready to make to HBO Max. As well as the future of the DCEU. The alarm was finally raised yesterday when it was revealed that Warner Bros. would not be releasing Batgirl, neither in theaters nor the streaming service. Today there are all sorts of rumors flying around about the future of the streaming service and their employees.

It’s no secret that Warner Bros. Discovery is attempting to cut costs. Another move that finally came to light, was the quiet removal of several Warner Bros. films that were exclusive to HBO Max. Over the past few weeks, they have removed films like Moonshot. A sci-fi rom-com starring Lana Condor and Cole Sprouse.  The AI dystopia comedy Superintelligence starring Melissa McCarthy. The classic remake of Witches starring Anne Hathaway. Seth Rogan’s An American Pickle, Doug Liman’s Locked Down, and Angel Manuel Soto’s Charm City Kings.


The removal of these once labeled Max Originals were first noted on Reddit and then reported by Variety. It is important to note that removing and adding back content on streaming services is normal. What is out of the ordinary, is that none of these were announced. Moonshot, for example, was removed from HBO Max after only being available for about three months.

It is highly speculated that this could all be part of Warner Bros. taking things off to eliminate streaming content payment obligations off their books from HBO Max. In the case of Batgirl, House Party, and Scoob: Holiday Haunt, they could now be tax write-downs. The company is scheduled to report second-quarter earnings tomorrow after the markets close.

We’ll keep you updated on all the news that comes out of the big changes that may be on the horizon for HBO Max.
