In March, HBO Max is dropping quite a few old favorites, as well as a giant four-hour
documentary superhero epic that you may have heard of called Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Despite what you’ve heard, that movie is not in black-and-white, but it is super-long. (We’re cautiously optimistic!) But if that’s not your thing, there’s also the new epic showdown between King Kong and Godzilla called, Godzilla Versus Kong. (Check out our retro Godzilla watch guide here.)
And if none of that is quite your thing, there’s plenty that’s been added to HBO Max for March. So, here’s everything that’s new to HBO Max, even if it’s not a “new” TV show or movie.
Bowfinger. The most underrated and under-seen film in the careers of both Steve Martin and Eddie Murphy. Directed by Frank Oz, the film also stars the funny and charming Heather Graham and a pre-Iron Man Robert Downey Jr.
Charlotte’s Web (2006 version; highly recommended!)
Dr. Dolittle 2
Driving Miss Daisy
Ocean’s Eleven, Twelve and Thirteen
Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride
March 5 –
Rocky 1-5 and the criminally underappreciated Rocky Balboa (with This Is Us star Milo Ventimiglia as Rocky’s son)

Generation. This original series, the first three episodes of which are available now, follows a group of high school students whose exploration of modern sexuality tests deeply entrenched beliefs about life, love, and the nature of family in their conservative community. The cast includes Martha Plimpton and a group of talented newcomers.
Tig N’ Seek. Kids should get a kick out of new episodes of this Cartoon Network show about Tiggy, an eccentric eight-year-old boy, and his inventive cat/best friend Gweeseek. Tiggy overzealously tries to track down missing items as part of his job at Wee-Gee City’s Department of Lost and Found, while Gweeseek invents extraordinary gadgets to help her friends in times of need. The show’s voiceover talent includes Wanda Sykes and series creator Myke Chilian as Tiggy.

Allen v. Farrow. HBO’s documentary series about the bitter, sometimes lurid he-said/she-said between Mia Farrow and Woody Allen concludes with episode four, but the case itself and its fallout on all involved seems unlikely to ever end.

Superman: The Animated Series (available for the time in HD)

Zack Snyder’s Justice League. The title pretty much says it all. Heeding fan demand, Warner Bros. reportedly handed Zack Snyder tens of millions of dollars and let him go back and reconfigure Justice League, his way. DCEU fans will remember that Snyder had wrapped shooting with Ben Affleck (Batman), Henry Cavill (Superman), Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), et al, but exited the project during post-production due to the tragic death of his daughter. Joss Whedon stepped in, uncredited, to complete Justice League, which later opened to poor reviews and franchise-damaging box office numbers. Will the so-called “Snyder Cut” improve upon the original? That remains to be seen. But we’ll be tuning into all FOUR hours of it — and that’s the whole idea, right?

Tina. The indomitable Tina Turner gets her due in this new HBO documentary. How is this woman NOT in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? She is… simply the best.
March 31 –
Godzilla vs. Kong. Following on the heels of Wonder Woman 1984, The Little Things, Judas and the Black Messiah, and the Tom & Jerry live-action/animated hybrid, Godzilla vs Kong is the latest Warner Bros. movie set to premiere day-and-date on HBO Max and in theaters. If you’ve got a big TV, dim the lights, amp up the sound bar, and get ready for a bone-crunching showdown between two of the entertainment industry’s most-enduring monsters. As for the human cast, it includes a mix of franchise returnees and newcomers: Alexander Skarsgard, Millie Bobby Brown, Rebecca Hall, Brian Tyree Henry, Eiza González, Jessica Henwick, Kyle Chandler, and Demián Bichir.
