Here is what's coming to the streaming service for the month of February.

Next week, it'll already be time to flip the calendar to the second month of 2021. It's hard to believe, but those eventful weeks passing by so quickly is softened by the sheer amount of content that will be on offer across all the streaming services--especially including HBO Max. Here's a look at some of our suggestions and other notable additions to HBO Max's schedule for February.

February 1 sees a surprising curtain lifting up on your chance to binge more than a few film trilogies and series. If you want to get back to roots with the live-action Batman films, and also be reminded why they eventually needed to be rebooted, the first of the month will see 1989's Batman, 1992's Batman Returns, 1995's Batman Forever, and 1997's Batman & Robin (the one where Batman's suit has nipples)--plus the more recent 2008 animated series Batman: The Brave and the Bold. Even if only viewed for a historical thrill of understanding what superhero movies were like when there was decidedly less of an audience for them, director Tim Burton's take on the universe with the Michael Keaton-starring Batman movies are worth checking out. Unlike director Chris Nolan's approach, Burton's Gotham is much more tongue-in-cheek, generally weird, but still takes itself seriously. It's worth a shot.

That same day, every Saw movie from the original through to The Final Chapter will also be released on HBO Max. Yes, February is usually associated with Valentine's Day, but who's to say you have to watch rom-coms to get in the spirit? If horror is your thing, you can hardly go wrong with one of the more enduring contemporary original franchises--plus it'll get you up to speed with the upcoming Spiral, which intriguingly stars Samuel L. Jackson and Chris Rock (who helped produce and write the film).

Finally, February is book-ended by Blade Runner. February 1 has Blade Runner: The Final Cut--the only version of the influential sci-fi movie to have director Ridley Scott's complete artistic control. Then, on February 27, you can catch up with Blade Runner 2049, the 2017 sequel to the 1982 original. Yes, it's the sequel Blade Runner fans didn't know they needed. But it also builds on the original quite well while also forging its own identity.

Below, you'll find everything coming and going from HBO Max for the month of February. For your content-binging pleasure and planning, you can also check out what Netflix, Shudder, and Hulu each have teed up for next month.
