Coming and Going on HBO Now in February 2018

Gal Gadot is Wonder Woman

HBO presents Wonder Woman, the superhero movie event of 2017, and Here and Now, a new original drama from Six Feet Under and True Blood creator Alan Ball starring Holly Hunter and Tim Robbins, in February.

Also debuting in February is the four-part special 2 Dope Queens with Jessica Williams and Phoebe Robinson, comedy The House with Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler, and original documentary Atomic Homefront, plus Last Week Tonight with John Oliver returns for a fifth season.

Older films returning to HBO include the original Alien and sequels (including the kick-ass Aliens), Predator and Predator 2, and the crossover showdown AVP: Alien vs. Predator, Man on the Moon with Jim Carrey as Andy Kaufman, the 2013 version of Romeo and Juliet with Hailee Steinfeld, and the Oscar-winning musical reworking of Shakespeare West Side Story.

Among the films leaving at the end of February are Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice (featuring Gal Gadot’s first appearance as Wonder Woman), Hacksaw Ridge with Andrew Garfield, Guillermo Del Toro’s Hellboy II: The Golden Army, and Coal Miner’s Daughter featuring an Oscar-winning performance from Sissy Spacek as Loretta Lynn.
