“The Little Things” is now available to watch on HBO Max. The film is the second in a series of Warner Bros. movies that are scheduled to start streaming on the same day they premiere in theaters.

The film follows Deke, a deputy sheriff played by Denzel Washington, who winds up searching for a serial killer in Los Angeles. Deke meets Baxter (Rami Malek), a sergeant from the LA Sheriff’s Department, who tags along on the investigation. But as the search continues, it reveals secrets of Deke’s past. The thriller is directed by John Lee Hancock and also features actor Jared Leto.

The movie follows the release of “Wonder Woman 1984” as the second Warner Bros. title to be released in theaters and through HBO Max at the same time. “Wonder Woman 1984” brought in 4.3 times the average amount of HBO Max signups in December 2020, according to research startup Antenna.

Although “Wonder Woman 1984” was the highest-grossing opening weekend release in domestic theaters since the start of the pandemic – earning $16.7 million – its box office still hasn’t captured the amount it cost to make the $200 million movie. The expectations for “The Little Things” are similar as more people flock to streaming services and fewer people attend cinemas, either due to closures or hesitancy to go back to theater seats.

“The Little Things” premiered on HBO Max on January 29. If you have an HBO Max subscription, you can watch the film with no additional fees. “The Little Things” will be available through March 1, but after that, the movie will leave HBO Max with no known return date.

HBO Max costs $15 per month. If you prepay for six months, you can currently receive a 20% discount. Cable subscribers who pay for HBO can also get HBO Max for free as part of their existing plan, although there are some limitations.

You can watch “The Little Things” through HBO Max on your mobile device, Playstation or Xbox, Chromecast, Samsung smart TV, Roku, Android TV, or Fire TV device.

“The Little Things” is the second HBO Max movie to support Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos formats for enhanced contrast, colors, and surround sound on compatible devices.

Chadwick Boseman, the late star of “Black Panther” and “42,” delivers his final performance in Netflix’s “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” an adaptation of the play of the same name. The film debuted on the streaming platform on December 18 after a limited theatrical run that drew critical acclaim for Boseman’s role as musician Levee Green.

“Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” is a part of the 10-play Pittsburgh Cycle written by August Wilson; it was first performed in 1984. In the Netflix adaptation, Viola Davis plays Ma Rainey, a real blues singer who inspired Wilson’s character. Davis won an Academy Award for her role in another Wilson adaptation, “Fences,” in 2016. Denzel Washington co-starred, directed, and produced “Fences,” and is credited as a producer for “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.”

Boseman filmed “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” in July 2019, one year before he died of colon cancer. His role has been described as “a parting gift” by critics, and members of the cast described Boseman’s performance as both “extraordinary” and “terrifying.” Davis, whose character clashes with Boseman’s Green on stage, said she broke down when she heard news of Boseman’s death in August.

Along with the film, Netflix has produced a 30-minute documentary exploring how Wilson’s play was adapted to the screen, with interviews from Davis, Washington, and director George C. Wolfe.

How to watch ‘Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom’

Outside of a very limited theater run, “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” is exclusive to Netflix, so you’ll have to sign up for the streaming service to watch.

Netflix plans start at $9 per month for standard definition streaming, but most people opt for the $14 per month option so they can get high definition streaming and share their account with another person. An $18 per month plan is also available with support for 4K streaming and playback on up to four screens.

“Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” is available in up to 4K resolution with Dolby Vision HDR contrast and Dolby Atmos sound on supported devices. You can find the Netflix app on iOS, Android, Mac, Windows, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Chromecast, and most smart TV brands.

Netflix is also home to “Da 5 Bloods,” Boseman’s penultimate performance, directed by Spike Lee. In that film, Boseman plays a member of a Black US Army troop in Vietnam, alongside Jonathan Majors and Delroy Lindo.
