What’s Streaming on HBO Max in April 2021

Prepare for Mortal Kombat and the Police Academy franchise

What's Streaming on HBO Max in April 2021
Mortal Kombat (HBO Max)

HBO Max is prepared for combat in April, mortally speaking.

As promised, the streaming giant is delivering more Warner Bros. theatrical features as part of their same-day program. That roll out will continue with the release of Mortal Kombat, the James Wan-produced reimagining of the seminal ’90s video game.

Elsewhere, Kate Winslet stars in the limited series Mare of Easttown, Joss Whedon’s Philippa Goslett’s new sci-fi show The Nevers drops, Cristin Milioti runs from her marriage in Made for Love, and Q: Into the Storm wraps up its epic rundown of Qanon.

In terms of archival material, April sees the addition of Fox’s The New Mutants, the director’s cut of Walter Hill’s The Warriors, Barry Levinson’s always re-watchable caper comedy Sneakers, and, yes, the entire Police Academy franchise.

Check out the entire list below, which also includes what’s leaving at the end of the month. To help round out your streaming sessions, be sure to read our recent guides outlining everything that’s hitting Disney+, Netflix, Hulu, and Shudder.
