August 1

Amsterdam (2022)

A large ensemble cast, including Christian Bale, Margot Robbie, and Anya Taylor-Joy star in this 1930s-set tale about 3 friends who find themselves involved in one of the most outrageous plots in American history. 

Stan & Ollie (2018)

Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy were two of the finest comedy actors of their generation. This movie, which stars Steve Coogan and John C Reilly as the bowler-hatted pair, is a bittersweet look at the world-famous comedy duo as they embarked on their last-ever theatre tour. Coogan and Reilly both give brilliant performances and the movie, as a whole, is very good. However, some liberties have been taken with the truth, so this isn’t altogether faithful to the true story of the final days of Laurel and Hardy’s career.

August 4

Khun Pan 3 (2023)

Premiering exclusively on Max is the third part of the Khun Pan trilogy. The movie is set in 1950s Thailand in the aftermath of World War 2 and focuses on a sorcerer cop named Khun Pan who battles against the corrupt politicians, military generals, and magic-wielding bandits who are pushing the country towards anarchy.
