Coming and Going on HBO Now in February 2017

Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, and Shailene Woodley star in the HBO mini-series

Reese Witherspoon reunites with filmmaker Jean-Marc Vallée (director of Wild) for a seven-part HBO original mini-series Big Little Lies, a dark satire starring Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley, Alexander Skarsgård, and Laura Dern. It debuts in February along with the sixth and final season of Girls, the new season of Last Week with John Oliver, and the new comedy series Crashing from comedian Pete Holmes.

New movies debuting on HBO include Guillermo del Toro’s Gothic thriller Crimson Peak with Mia Wasikowska, Tom Hiddleston, and Jessica Chastain, A Bigger Splash with Tilda Swinton and Ralph Fiennes, The Legend of Tarzan with Alexander Skarsgård and Margot Robbie, and the comedies Central Intelligence with Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart and Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates with Zac Efron and Adam Devine.

Older titles returning to HBO in February include Martin Scorsese’s Raging Bull with Robert DeNiro, Road to Perdition with tom Hanks, the John Hughes eighties teen classics Sixteen Candles and The Breakfast Club, and a collection of Spike Lee movies, including Do The Right Thing and Clockers.

Leaving at the end of the month are the true-life survival drama In the Heart of the Sea, the political thriller Michael Clayton with George Clooney, the bromance comedy I Love You, Man, the searing Children of Men with Clive Owen, and the original animated version of Charlotte’s Web.
