We always keep an eye out for the latest Netflix lineup, and, of course, everything coming to Prime Video. But now, we’re happy to report that Max (formerly HBO Max) is offering a sneak peek at its new releases.

Max has offered a glimpse of the exciting titles that will be added to its database in April 2024. There are multiple classic titles, like Black Swan, Bridget Jones's Diary, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Lost In Translation and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. There’s also a slew of Max debuts, like The Synanon Fix, The Sympathizer and The Jinx—Part Two.

Keep reading for our top picks from Max’s new releases, followed by a complete list of TV shows and movies that are coming to the streaming service beginning April 1.

1. The Synanon Fix

  • Premiere date: April 1

If you love cult documentaries, then you need to watch this four-part series. It introduces viewers to a controversial drug rehabilitation program that developed a cult-like following.

2. Brandy Hellville & the Cult of Fast Fashion

  • Premiere date: April 9

This documentary dives into the wildly popular brand, Brandy Melville, and how its “one size fits most” tagline promotes a toxic culture. The movie aims to prove that fashion can be an exploitative business underneath all the glitz and glamour. 

3. The Sympathizer

  • Premiere date: April 14

The show takes place during the Vietnam War and follows a half-French, half-Vietnamese communist spy who flees to Los Angeles as a refugee. (FYI, the thriller is based on Viet Thanh Nguyen’s namesake Pulitzer Prize-winning novel.)

4. The Jinx—Part Two

  • Premiere date: April 21

The original show, titled The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst, premiered in 2015, and it exposed the decades-long investigation into billionaire Robert Durst. Part Two picks up where the first half ends, where Durst finally confesses to the murders, saying, “Killed them all, of course.”
