The Suicide Squad hits theaters and HBO Max on Thursday, Aug. 5, 2021. Based on other streaming releases, it should arrive at 12 a.m. PT.

The standalone sequel to David Ayer's 2016 Suicide Squad was originally scheduled for a release date of Aug. 6, but it's coming a day early just for fun.

If you have HBO Max, just head to the streamer from Aug. 5 to catch The Suicide Squad. But remember, don't wait too long. Like other WB blockbusters, it's only available on the streamer for one month. So it won't be available after Sept. 5.

How much does HBO Max cost?

Right now, HBO Max costs $15 a month.

Unlike Disney Plus Premium Access which charges extra for new films like Black Widow, there's no top-up fee for Suicide Squad beyond your HBO Max subscription fee.

If you currently subscribe to HBO via your cable or satellite provider, you can probably get HBO Max without paying anything extra. We explain it in detail here, but essentially, you'll need to watch on a smart TV or streaming device -- or a Comcast Xfinity box -- using the HBO Max app and your home internet connection.

Last December, Roku struck a deal that gives subscribers access to HBO Max. Roku users who already use the HBO app will automatically update to HBO Max.
