HBO Max today is adding 80 new movies to its streaming lineup, and tomorrow it will add the 2022 theatrical box office hit, Elvis.

Today’s new films include The Accused, the intense 1988 drama (based on a true story) starring Jodie Foster in an Academy Award-winning performance as a rape victim who struggles to find justice in an unjust system; The Bad and the Beautiful, the cheeky 1952 drama starring Kirk Douglas as a ruthless film producer who exploits everyone close to him (including Lana Turner) to fulfill his cinematic vision; Glory, the powerful 1989 drama chronicling the important role of African-American soldiers (played by Denzel Washington and Morgan Freeman, among others) in the Union army during the Civil War; and Jailhouse Rock, the 1957 musical drama starring that force of nature named Elvis Presley as a prisoner who becomes a rock star after his release.

And speaking of Elvis…HBO Max tomorrow will add Elvis the movie, the Warner Bros. biofilm starring Austin Butler as the legendary King of Roll ‘n’ Roll. The film, which has grossed more than $270 million worldwide since its premiere just two months ago, is also a hit with the critics., which tracks critical reviews, gives Elvis a score of 78 out of a possible 100 based on 364 reviews.

“The standard rock biopic formula gets all shook up in Elvis, with (director) Baz Luhrmann’s dazzling energy and style perfectly complemented by Austin Butler’s outstanding lead performance,” the site states, summarizing the reviews. (The audience score at is even better with a 94.)
