HBO Max’s August content includes “An American Pickle,” a comedy starring Seth Rogen, a 10-episode cooking series starring Selena Gomez, “Selena + Chef,” and two DC Universe shows: the movie “Birds of Prey” and the season two finale of the series “Doom Patrol.”

On the movie front, look for “Batman,” “Kung Fu Panda” and “Ocean’s Eleven,” as well as a chance to screen all eight “Harry Potter’ films in HBO Max’s “Last Chance to Watch” section.

HBO Originals include Jonathan Majors and Courtney B. Vance in “Lovecraft Country,” set in a 1950s segregated America, the political documentary “The Swamp” and the final of the hit drama “Perry Mason.”
