As always, HBO Max will be removing a handful of titles to make room for some of the forthcoming additions. The back catalog, specifically, will lose some popular titles on the last day of August. Those movies include the first two Bill & Ted installments, the Saw franchise, several National Lampoon’s Vacation movies, and the Beverly Hills Cop trilogy. Space Jam: A New Legacy is also heading out on August 16, but that’s not the only notable departure. The streamer will be losing recently released movies like Joker, Replicas, and The High Note by the end of the month. Though some might be saddened to say goodbye to summer with the arrival of September, there’s a lot to look forward to, including several WB releases like James Wan’s Malignant.ADVERTISING
