All The New Movies & TV Shows On HBO This Month



With the 2020 awards season in full swing, the list of new movies and TV shows on HBO in February 2020 includes some past favorites from some of the year’s biggest nominees. Among the slate of new offerings are films starring Jennifer Aniston (2014’s Cake), Scarlett Johansson (2005’s The Island), and Nicole Kidman (2001’s The Others).

Knives Out‘s Golden Globe-nominated star Daniel Craig also is part of the premium network’s new batch of movie franchise installments and sequels, with the network airing two of his Bond films: Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace. (HBO will also make the 1967 version of Casino Royale, starring Sean Connery as Bond, available to subscribers as well.) Others include: 2019’s Shaft, Annabelle Comes Home, two Hostel movies, as well as all three iterations of The Skulls.

On the non-fiction front, HBO will feature shorts from the American Black Film Festival competition, in addition to premiering Season 7 of the Emmy-winning Last Week Tonight with John Oliver and a new episode of LeBron James’ The Shop: Uninterrupted. Documentary highlights include: Ali & Cavett: The Tale of the Tapes, We Are the Dream: The Kids of the Oakland MLK Oratorical Fest, and McMillion$, which chronicles "the stranger-than-fiction story of an ex-cop turned security auditor who rigged the McDonald’s Monopoly game promotion for a decade."
