Here's what's new on HBO Max in February 2023 -- and what's leaving
By Mike Murphy
John Oliver is back, so is Harley Quinn, and it's time to watch some Oscar contenders
HBO Max has Oscar contenders and comedy on tap in February 2023, along with U.S. women's soccer.
Viewers have more than a month to catch up on watching Oscar nominees, and Max will premiere two this month: "Empire of Light" (Feb. 7), directed by Sam Mendes, stars Olivia Colman and Micheal Ward in a romance set at a movie theater on the English coast in the 1980s, and "All That Breathes" (Feb. 7), a documentary directed by Shaunak Sen, follows the quixotic efforts of two brothers to protect black kites in New Delhi. Max also has Oscar nominees "The Banshees of Inisherin," "The Batman," "Elvis" and "Navalny" in its library.

And just in time for Valentine's Day, there's "Harley Quinn: A Very Problematic Valentine's Day Special" (Feb. 9), as the animated supervillainess tries to pull of a perfect V-Day with her new squeeze, Poison Ivy.
The Warner Bros. Discovery (WBD) service will also stream the U.S. women's soccer team game against rival Canada (Feb. 16); a collection of shorts from the American Black Film Festival (Feb. 1); and a slate of movies including a slew of James Bond films, "So I Married an Axe Murderer","Taxi Driver" (all Feb. 1) and "Edge of Tomorrow" (Feb. 7).
