Kate Winslet in "The Regime" on HBO and Max

March has arrived and spring is approaching. And that means a bunch of new TV shows and movies are springing up on HBO and Max this month.

Topping the list of new shows and movies is "The Regime." This political satire starring Kate Winslet has some serious acting talent attached to it and is probably my most anticipated show or movie coming to HBO and Max in March. 

But it's not the only thing of note new to Max. There are a ton of movies worth checking out, including last year's "Wonka" and "Dream Scenario." As someone who watched the latter, I highly recommend checking out this Nic Cage performance.

Of course, these top picks are all in addition to plenty of other TV shows and movies too. The best streaming service out there always adds a huge slate of new shows and movies and this month is no exception. Plus, you even get live sports thanks to the B/R Sports Add-on, which is currently still free to subscribers. 

Here's everything you can expect to be coming to — and leaving — HBO and Max in March 2024.

New on Max in March 2024: Top Picks

'The Regime' 

Kate Winslet is back on HBO for a limited series event and after the success of "Mare of Easttown" I'm excited for this reunion. "The Regime" stars Winslet as Elena Vernham, the chancellor of a fictional Central European country that she leads with an iron fist. However, her grip may be weakening thanks to pressure from the imprisoned leader of the opposition to her regime (Hugh Grant).

Unlike in "Mare," Winslet does not appear to have opted for a dialect coach for this show. Nobody is remotely attempting an authentic accent, but that's fine with me. Despite its billing as a drama, this political satire looks like it has the potential to become a completely unhinged dark comedy instead, and that's a shift I'd welcome. Regardless, this is the show to watch on HBO and Max this month above all others.

Premieres March 3 on HBO and Max

'Wonka'

Spoiler alert: this is a musical. The powers that be don't want you to know that because any hint of a musical is almost completely eradicated from the trailer. But I promise you, you should expect some singing and dancing from Willy Wonka (Timothée Chalamet) and Lofty, the Oompa-Loompa (Hugh Grant).

That said, "Wonka" is a perfectly fine excuse for a family movie night even if you're not particularly into musicals. Chalamet's performance in particular has been praised by critics in this Wonka origin story, so don't miss it now that it's on Max.

Stream it on Max starting March 8

'The Girls on the Bus' season 1

Not everything new this month is coming to HBO. Starring Melissa Benoist, Natasha Behnam, Christina Elmore, and Carla Gugino, "The Girls on the Bus" is a brand new TV series coming exclusively to Max. This comedy drama is the story of four female journalists who are following a fictional U.S. presidential campaign. It's based on the 2018 memoir "Chasing Hillary" ... and with that said I probably don't need to tell you which campaigns will be used as inspiration for the candidates these women will be covering over the 10-episode first season.

Premieres March 14 on Max

'Dream Scenario'

"Dream Scenario" was one of the funniest movies I saw last year. The movie stars Nicolas Cage as Paul Matthews, a college professor who is appearing in people's dreams all over the world. The only problem — he has no idea why. 

If that sounds delightfully absurd to you, you're right. It is. But as funny as this movie is at times it also takes dark, heartbreaking turns. Regardless of tone though, it's always Cage's Golden Globe-nominated performance that you're following and it shouldn't be missed.

Stream it on Max starting March 15

'Ramy Youssef: More Feelings'

"More Feelings" is comedian and actor Ramy Youssef's follow-up to the 2019 hit stand-up comedy special "Feelings." We don't know a ton about this A24-produced HBO original comedy special, but if it's anything like the highly-rated 2019 special or Youssef's award-winning TV show "Ramy," expect it to be one of the best things you'll watch on HBO or Max this month. This is a comedic talent you don't want to miss in action.

Premieres this March (date TBD) on Max
