With a new month just around the corner, streaming services are finally letting users have a look at what new movies and shows are going to be added to their lineups in the weeks ahead. October is now different, and HBO Max has a pretty substantial overhaul in store for the spookiest month of the year. WarnerMedia's already-impressive library of movies and TV is about to get a whole lot bigger, with a ton of popular classics on the way in October, as well as some new originals.
There are a couple of beloved franchises that will be making their way to HBO Max next month in their entirety. All three Matrix films will be made available on HBO Max in October, alongside all four Lethal Weapon movies and the entire Friday trilogy. It's also worth noting that two of the three Austin Powers movies will be debuting as well.
The Zack Snyder-directed Man of Steel will be making its way to HBO Max next month, rounding out the modern DC franchise with the film that kicked it off. In terms of originals, October will see the finales of both Lovecraft Country and Raised by Wolves, and the premiere of the original film Charm City Kings.
