The brand-new streaming service HBO Max launched at the end of May, bringing a wealth of new movies and TV shows to viewers’ fingertips. The beginning of a new month means even more offerings are on their way.

In June, HBO Max will boast even more movies, as well as some original programming, notably a new Adventure Time special (the first of four) as well as the second season of Doom Patrol. The first Magic Mike will also hit streaming via HBO Max, the director’s cut of Doctor Sleep will be available for horror aficionados, and Ad Astra is up there for anyone who wishes they could be launched into outer space right now.

Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day, 2008 (HBO)

Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day is one of the best romantic comedies of recent years, but it’s generally underappreciated. Luckily for you, HBO Max has come to the rescue. Frances McDormand stars as Miss Pettigrew, a straitlaced woman who, after being fired from her job as a governess, finds employment as the social secretary to singer-actress Delysia Lafosse (Amy Adams), who is juggling relationships with three men at once. As Miss Pettigrew manages Delysia’s social calendar, she gets swept into high society, and into a tender new romance.
