Coming and Going on HBO Now in July 2019

Bohemian Rhapsody, starring Rami Malek in an Oscar-winning performance as Queen frontman Freddie Mercury, and Damien Chazelle’s First Man with Ryan Gosling as astronaut Neil Armstrong come to HBO in July, along with the Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, and thrillers Red Sparrow with Jennifer Lawrence, and Thoroughbreds with Olivia Cooke and Anya Taylor-Joy.

HBO originals arriving in July are the independent thriller Share, which comes to HBO from the Sundance Film Festival, the original documentaries I Love You, Now Die and Who Killed Garrett Phillips?, and the third season of Divorce.

Older films returning to HBO include the superhero spectacle Justice League, animated comedy Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Notting Hill with Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant, and the original 1962 classic The Manchurian Candidate.

Among the films leaving at the end of July are Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One, Oscar-nominated animated adventure Isle of Dogs, comedies Blockers and Life of the Party, In the Valley of Elah with Tommy Lee Jones, Collateral with Tom Cruise and Jamie Foxx, and Woody Allen’s Crimes and Misdemeanors.
