The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do it is hitting theaters and HBO Max on Friday, but not every movie in theaters can be found streaming there (so don't come looking for the Quiet Place sequel).
The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It hits theaters Friday, and A Quiet Place Part II ruled the box office over the Memorial Day weekend. But for those who want to stay home, only The Conjuring 3 is available to stream on HBO Max. Cruella streams elsewhere; however, A Quiet Place Part II isn't yet available at all.
HBO Max is going to make waves this year when it announces that films will be released at no extra charge on the same day they hit US cinemas. Additionally, Warner Bros.' movies for 2019 are already scheduled and coming out both in theaters and through HBO Max simultaneously. Including In The Heights, Space Jam: A New Legacy (coming November 21), Dune (November 27), and Matrix 4 which has a release date of TBA!
Over the past few years, movies have been released in both traditional and streaming formats. This new hybrid release strategy is unprecedented but it's sparking optimism among moviegoers when a new flick hits theaters without knowing which studio will distribute that film. For example, people are hopeful for potential films on HBO Max if they don't know what studios their favorite filmmakers work with already
Warner Bros. is at the forefront of a new trend in Hollywood with its release strategy for HBO Max, which combines exclusive theatrical releases and premium television content on-demand due to their strong partnership with WarnerMedia's AT&T subsidiary that owns both companies. The company released nine movies exclusively on the streaming service this year alone including blockbusters like Godzilla: King of Monsters (2019) as well as classics such as Casablanca (1942).
The hybrid release strategy is so aggressive, in fact, WarnerMedia has decided to end it after 2021. Starting in 2022, movies from Warner Bros., are expected only to have a window of time exclusively at theaters before moving on to other formats such as online rentals and HBO Max. However, this will be much shorter than the theatrical windows were before the pandemic set off by Thanos occurred recently with his snap heard around Hollywood ending half of life across all Marvel properties

The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do is available to stream on HBO Max for all subscribers. Those subscribed to the service's new $10-a-month ad-supported tier cannot watch the movie, nor any of their same day.
The sequel to the horror hit A Quiet Place is only in theaters, but you can watch it on Paramount Plus 45 days after its theatrical release. That's much faster than theatrically released movies would have made it to a streaming service before the pandemic!
All these titles will be available on HBO Max the same day they hit US theaters.
