Before we get to the big list of the new movies on HBO Max this month, let's dive into three of our top picks:

New movies on HBO Max: Editor's picks

Creed (2015)

Adonis "Donnie" Creed (Michael B. Jordan), the son of Apollo Creed, is not a character anyone saw coming. But much like Michael B. Jordan himself, Creed caught fire upon arrival to the big screen. This first chapter of the Creed trilogy, directed by the fantastic Ryan Coogler, sees Creed struggle through detention centers and other paths in life. But it's through Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone), his father's old rival, that Creed finally gets a chance to define his own name.

Thrilling, and proof that spinoffs can be fantastic films, Creed is a critically acclaimed sports movie that most should love. Its fight sequences may be too much for some, but the film is utterly fantastic overall. - Henry T. Casey

Paul Rudd and Jason Segel are two of the most likeable actors in Hollywood. Putting them together in this bromantic comedy is simply kismet. Rudd plays Peter, a real estate agent who gets engaged to Zooey (Rashida Jones). Peter doesn't have any guy friends, which will be an issue when he has to pick a best man. 

At an open house, he happens to meet Sydney (Segel), an investor who shares Peter's love for the band Rush. They quickly bond, but when Sydney rubs Zooey the wrong way. Later, when Sydney makes a rash financial decision, Peter is forced to end their new friendship. Will they hug it out and make up before wedding day?

Mexican-American singer Selena Quintanilla Pérez had an all-too-brief life, experiencing the heights of fame and success before being murdered at the age of 23. In her first leading role, Jennifer Lopez takes on the role of the tragic figure, known as the Queen of Tejano music. 

The biopic chronicles Selena’s life from childhood, when father Abraham (Edward James Olmos) first realizes her talent, to performing at small venues with her siblings. Later, she falls for her her guitarist, Chris Perez (Jon Seda) and begins recording an English-language album — which she unfortunately never finished.
