Original Alien Movies Leaving HBO Max in March

HBO Max has confirmed what the next batch of content exiting the streaming service will be next month which includes all four of the original Alien franchise movies. 1979's Alien, 1986's Aliens, 1992's Alien 3, and 1997's Alien Resurrection, will all depart on Wednesday, March 31. What's curious about this development is that Prometheus, the 2012 prequel film, will seemingly remain on HBO Max through March after the other films in the series depart. Furthermore, 2017's Alien: Covenant is not available for streaming on any platform, making it impossible to currently watch the entire series on any service.

Since the Alien franchise is now owned by the Walt Disney Company, who have put a television series set in the universe in development for Hulu, fans would no doubt expect every film to be available on that platform, and perhaps that's the plan. Rights an streaming bundles are a tricky thing sometimes, with some movies put together in deals that others even in the same series are not. In any event, it's possible Disney is trying to bring the full series together into one place ahead of the show's debut, luckily they've got plenty of time as no time line on its release has been announced.
