The Best TV Shows & Movies Coming To HBO Max In July 2021

It's actually somewhat shocking that we're so close to July already, but I guess that's how this whole "continuous process of time" thing works. As June rolls over to July, the days will get hotter, armpits will grow sweatier, and HBO Max will add new stuff to stream. The biggest new title on the service is arguably Space Jam: A New Legacy, but there's plenty of other stuff worth checking out as well. Check out all the new TV shows and movies coming to HBO Max in July 2021 below.

Freaky Trailer


One of my favorite movies from last year, Freaky is the best slasher movie since Scream. It's a bloody, funny, and surprisingly sweet body-swap flick that finds a serial killer (Vince Vaughn) taking over the body of a high school girl (Kathryn Newton) while the high school girl inhabits the killer's body in return. This leads to Vince Vaughn acting like a teen girl and Kathryn Newton acting like Vince Vaughn, and it works incredibly well. Look for it on July 24.

No Sudden Move

A new Steven Soderbergh movie is always worth celebrating, and No Sudden Move looks particularly great. The film follows a group of criminals in the 1950s, and features a killer cast that includes Don Cheadle, Benicio del Toro, David Harbour, Jon Hamm, Amy Seimetz, Brendan Fraser, Kieran Culkin, Noah Jupe, Craig Grant, Julia Fox, Ray Liotta, and Bill Duke. Streaming July 1.

Ghost in the Machine

This somewhat forgotten '90s horror pic is bonkers, featuring a storyline about a serial killer who manages to upload his soul into a computer. This in turn enables the killer to possess electrical items and use them to keep killing. It's very silly and surprisingly gruesome, and I'm thrilled at the prospect of being able to stream this thing on HBO Max starting July 1.

Wellington Paranormal Season 1

At long last, the What We Do in the Shadows spin-off series Wellington Paranormal is coming to America. The comedy series follows the two cops we briefly saw in the What We Do in the Shadows movie as they investigate paranormal activity. The first season will be streaming starting July 12.

The Empty Man

It's genuinely surprising that The Empty Man exists at all. It's a big, weird studio horror movie, the likes of which we don't really see these days. Writer-director David Prior was somehow able to convince 20th Century Studios, now owned by Disney, to finance a strange, metaphysical, nearly unclassifiable horror movie that blends urban legend with Lovecraftian cosmic horror. It's not entirely successful – the third act is kind of a mess, honestly. But I'd rather have more movies like this that take risks and swing for the fences, even if they don't completely work. Streaming July 17.
