6 incredible sci-fi movies leaving HBO Max in November 2021

“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer.”

6. Dune (2021)

November 21

After its October debut, Dune leaves HBO Max this month. The latest adaptation of the supposedly unfilmable book is a visual treat that sets the stage for a 2023 sequel.

5. Blade: Trinity

November 25

The three Blade movies have diminishing returns, but Blade: Trinity still delivers enough of the series’ stylized, over-the-top action to warrant a watch.

4. Ghost Rider

November 30

If Blade: Trinity isn’t quite corny enough for you, Ghost Rider has you covered. This bizarre detour in the history of superhero movies is best watched late at night with friends willing to shout at the screen with you.

3. Robots

November 30

Robots is a fairly formulaic movie, but its heartfelt message feels sincere, and its CG animation still looks incredible more than 15 years after its release.

2. Horror of Dracula

November 30

Dracula is one of the most venerable horror movie monsters, and the 1958 Christopher Lee-led Horror of Dracula is among his best appearances. Dracula Has Risen From the Grave, released 11 years later, also leaves on the same day.

1. Dune (1984)

November 30

After watching Denis Villeneuve’s Dune, you’ve still got a week to catch the considerably stranger David Lynch version. It’s sort of a grueling experience overall, but its sheer audacity begs to be seen.
