Here are all the Warner Bros HBO Max movies released or coming in 2022
In 2021, HBO Max released all of Warner Bros’ 2021 theatrical films on the same day they were released in theaters in the US. That was a bold and game-changing move, to say the least. In late 2021, Warner Bros said it will send theatrical films this year to HBO Max just 45 days after they debut in theaters. However, that plan has now changed, and it could take several months for those movies to debut on the service. Even with this change, there will likely be a lot of great movies that will be added to HBO Max in 2022.

So, what movies can you expect to stream on the service? Here’s what we know about this release strategy from one of the biggest movie studios in Hollywood.
How does the Warner Bros HBO Max movie release schedule work?
While there won’t be any day-and-date movie releases on HBO Max in 2022, Warner Bros. Entertainment chairman-CEO Ann Sarnoff confirmed to the Hollywood Reporter in 2021 that its films slated for theatrical release could debut on HBO Max just 45 days after they debut in theaters. However, Warner Bros has since clarified that not every movie will follow that strategy. If a movie is a big enough box office hit, Warner Bros. could decide to hold off on moving the film to HBO Max sometime after that 45-day window.
Will I have to pay extra for watching these Warner Bros HBO Max movies?
If you get your HBO Max subscription under the $14.99 a month plan, you can access the Warner Bros. 2022 theatrical movies for no additional cost.
How long will I be able to watch these films on HBO Max?
Once they hit HBO Max, the Warner Bros. 2022 movies will likely stay on the service for at least a year, if not longer. They will also be released via digital movie stores for rent or purchase, including 4K UHD, Blu-Ray, and DVDs.
Here’s the Warner Bros HBO Max 2022 movies list, in order of their planned theatrical release schedule. Keep in mind that release schedules could, and likely will, change.
