Best action films

HBO Max is also the place to go for action-packed movies full of adventure that have been licensed for streaming. Whether suspenseful, fast-action flicks or sci-fi thrillers are your thing, here are the top action movies and franchises on HBO Max to watch before they're gone.

Jaws (1975)

Directed by Steven Spielberg, Jaws follows the aftermath of a young woman's brutal killing by a massive shark while swimming in New England. While police chief Martin Brody (Roy Schneider) wants to shut down the beach, Mayor Larry Vaughn (Murray Hamilton) is more concerned about how the shutdown will affect tourism, leading to disaster. The classic film also features one of the most infamous scores of all time from composer John Williams.

Blade Runner (1982)

Ridley Scott's Blade Runner stars Harrison Ford as Deckard, an ex-Replicant Hunter who is forced by his former boss (M. Emmet Walsh) to complete one more assignment: eliminate four escaped Replicants from the colonies who have returned to Earth. The 1982 sci-fi classic also stars Edward James Olmos and Daryl Hannah.

Die Hard (1988)

Die Hard stars Bruce Willis as New York City police officer John McClane, who is visiting his estranged wife (Bonnie Bedelia) and two daughters on Christmas Eve when his wife's office holiday party is interrupted by a group of terrorists who take over the exclusive high-rise where it's taking place.

The Matrix Trilogy

Created by the Wachowskis and producer Joel Silver, The Matrix films tell the story of the technological fall of humankind. The plot follows Keanu Reeves' Neo, who joins forces with Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) and Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne) to free humanity from the system known as The Matrix.

The Dark Knight Trilogy

Directed by Christopher Nolan, The Dark Knight Trilogy stars Christian Bale as the titular Caped Crusader in three of the best Batman films of all-time: 2005's Batman Begins, 2008's The Dark Knight and 2012's The Dark Knight Rises. Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, and Cillian Murphy also appeared in all three movies, while Heath Ledger won an Oscar posthumously for his portrayal of The Joker in The Dark Knight.

The classics

HBO Max also offers a variety of award-winning and history-making films that you probably grew up being told to watch. If you want to revisit a favorite or view a Hollywood classic for the first time, HBO Max is the place to go. Here are five classic films available on HBO Max.

The Philadelphia Story (1940)

Directed by George Cukor and starring Katharine Hepburn, The Philadelphia Story is a romantic comedy about a Philadelphia socialite named Tracy, who splits from her alcoholic husband (Cary Grant). As Tracy gets ready to marry the wealthy George (John Howard), she struggles to get over her ex-husband and stifle feelings for reporter Macaulay Connor (Jimmy Stewart).

Citizen Kane (1941)

Often considered to be the best movie ever made, Orson Welles' Citizen Kane follows a reporter who is assigned to decipher newspaper magnate Charles Foster Kane's dying words. Through talking to the people who knew Kane best, the reporter learns a lot more than he bargained for.

Casablanca (1942)

Casablanca stars Humphrey Bogart as Rick Blaine, the owner of a nightclub in Casablanca, who discovers his old flame Ilsa (Ingrid Bergman) is in town with her husband. As expected, things get more than a little complicated.

Singin' in the Rain (1952)

One of the most celebrated movie musicals in history, Singin' in the Rain follows actors Don (Gene Kelly) and Lina (Jean Hagen), who have been repeatedly cast as romantic leads. When their latest film is remade into a musical, the voice of a tone-deaf Lina is replaced by an up-and-coming actress named Kathy (Debbie Reynolds) — who steals the show.

The Graduate (1967)

The Graduate stars Dustin Hoffman in one of his most iconic roles, as recent college graduate Benjamin Braddock. While desperately trying to avoid questions about his future, Benjamin is seduced by Mrs. Robinson (Anne Bancroft), a bored housewife who also happens to be a friend of his parents.

More exclusives on HBO Max

HBO Max is also the exclusive home for the Studio Ghibli Collection. As part of the partnership, the entire Studio Ghibli catalog is available to stream now via HBO Max. This includes award-winning animated titles such as My Neighbor Totoro, Kiki's Delivery Service, and Spirited Away.

Outside of the Studio Ghibli projects, HBO Max offers a wide selection of family-friendly content perfect for your next family backyard theater experience, including favorites like The Wizard of Oz, The Witches (2020), Happy Feet, and Where the Wild Things Are.

There's a lot to consider when choosing what to stream these days, especially when you're presented with the amount of content available on HBO Max versus Peacock versus Disney+ and so on. And like its competitors, HBO Max regularly updates its expansive media library with fresh content and brand new releases.

Among the most-anticipated upcoming releases coming to HBO Max soon is Zack Snyder's Justice League, a four-hour-long cut of the 2012 film that's scheduled to premiere in March. Meanwhile, a fourth installment in the franchise is scheduled to debut in theaters and on HBO Max on Dec. 22.

Meta launched Llama 2, its large language model, in July 2023, and in April, the company released the latest versions of its AI models, called Llama 3 . The Wall Street Journal reports that the two longtime rivals have held talks about offering Meta's model as an additional option to OpenAI's ChatGPT.

macOS Sequoia Adds iCloud Support for macOS 15 Virtual Machines

Apple is introducing a notable enhancement to its virtualization framework in macOS Sequoia by enabling Mac users to sign into iCloud within macOS virtual machines (VMs). Previously, users could not sign into iCloud on macOS VMs, which limited the framework's utility for developers needing to test iCloud features and for users looking to sync their apps with iCloud. As spotted by ArsTechnica , macOS Sequoia removes that barrier, provided that both the host and guest operating systems are macOS 15 or newer. The feature will be available on Apple silicon Macs, but it has some limitations. Developers aiming to run older macOS versions alongside macOS 15 in a VM or those who upgrade VMs from older macOS versions will not be able to sign into iCloud on the VM. Only brand-new VMs created from a macOS 15 install image (an .ipsw file) can utilize iCloud and services related to Apple Account (formerly Apple ID). Apple's virtualization framework documentation explains : "Wh
