Coming and Going on HBO Now in July 2017

Nathalie Emmanuel, Peter Dinklage, Conleth Hill, Emilia Clarke, and Jacob Anderson in season seven of "Game of Thrones."

It may be summer outside but winter is here on HBO as Game of Thrones returns. The seventh season of HBO’s most popular series debuts in July, along with new seasons of the HBO originals Insecure with Issa Ray and Ballers with Dwayne Johnson. HBO also debuts the four-part original documentary The Defiant Ones about the creative partnership of Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine and the mockumentary Tour De Pharmacy with Andy Samberg.

New films arriving in July include the Oscar-nominated historical dramas Loving with Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga and Hacksaw Ridge with Andrew Garfield and the comedies Keeping Up With the Joneses with Zach Galifianakis and Isla Fisher and Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping with Andy Samberg.

Older films returning to HBO include superhero movies The Dark Knight with Christian Bale as Batman and Zach Snyder’s adaptation of Watchmen, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider with Angelina Jolie, and Erin Brockovich with Julia Roberts as a different kind of hero.

Among the films leaving at the end of the month are Midnight Special with Michael Shannon, the Coen Bros.’s Hail, Caesar!, Martin Scorsese’s The Color of Money, Risky Business with Tom Cruise, and Tim Burton’s Batman Returns.
