What Is The HBO Saturday Night Movie Tonight 2021
HBO customers trapped indoors due to the continuing epidemic or the effects of the recent storm may be wondering what the feature film for tonight is and when it will begin. With a feature every Saturday night, the network usually broadcasts a wide variety of films, which will likely increase this year thanks to its deal with WarnerMedia.
This week's feature picture is Ben Affleck's Argo, which won three Academy Awards (including Best Picture) and grossed $232.5 million at the box office when it was released in 2012.
Affleck plays CIA agent Tony Mendez in the film Argo, which also stars Bryan Cranston, Alan Arkin, and John Goodman. The historical drama-thriller follows exfiltration expert Mendez as he works with the CIA to save six U.S. embassy employees in Tehran, Iran, who have evaded arrest by Islamist radicals and are now hiding at the house of Canadian ambassador Ken Taylor.

You may view it in a variety of ways, like with anything HBO. You already know the procedure if you have HBO as part of your cable bundle and like to watch it live. Make sure HBO is on about 8 p.m. ET tonight, and you're good to go. What if you have cable yet still want to watch Argo whenever you want? This is where HBO NOW and HBO Max can help.
HBO Max is available to anybody who has an HBO account of any kind. Select the app you'd like to view. We personally prefer HBO Max since it has so much more stuff. Enter your cable login and password if you have HBO via your cable provider.
Otherwise, use your HBO NOW or HBO Max username and password from when you first signed up. You may also sign up for HBO Max straight on the HBO website. Are you on the lookout for a free HBO trial? Unfortunately, HBO did away with it in December. You must pay the HBO fee if you wish to view HBO content.
HBO Saturday Night Movie Premiers
Neil Burger wrote and directed the American science fiction film Voyagers, which was released in 2021. The film stars Lily-Rose Depp, Fionn Whitehead, Colin Farrell, Chanté Adams, Isaac Hempstead Wright, Viveik Kalra, Archie Renaux, Archie Madekwe, and Quintessa Swindell star in the film, which follows a group of teenage astronauts sent on a multi-generational mission in the year 2063 to colonize a habitable exoplanet amidst runaway climate change and declining habitability.
Lionsgate released the picture in theaters on April 9, 2021. The movie got mostly poor reviews from critics, with many claiming that it's basically a future Lord of the Flies, and earned just the US $4.2 million against a $29 million production budget, making it a box office flop.
Emerald Fennell's feature directorial debut, Promising Young Woman, is a 2020 dark comedic thriller film she wrote, produced, and directed. Carey Mulligan plays a young woman who is tormented by a tragic past as she attempts to strike a balance between forgiveness and revenge. Supporting cast members include Bo Burnham, Alison Brie, Clancy Brown, Jennifer Coolidge, Laverne Cox, and Connie Britton.
On January 25, 2020, Promising Young Woman had its global debut at the Sundance Film Festival, and Focus Features distributed it theatrically in the United States on December 25, 2020. It was well-received by reviewers, who praised the script, directing, and Mulligan's performance, and earned $15 million worldwide.
The film was nominated for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress (Mulligan), and Best Film Editing at the 93rd Academy Awards, where it won Best Original Screenplay. At the Critics' Choice Awards, Writers' Guild Awards, and British Academy Film Awards, Fennell won Best Original Screenplay.
Mortal Kombat is a relaunch of the Mortal Kombat film series, released in 2021. It is based on the video game franchise of the same name. Lewis Tan, Jessica McNamee, Josh Lawson, Tadanobu Asano, Mehcad Brooks, Ludi Lin, Chin Han, Max Huang, Joe Taslim, and Hiroyuki Sanada are among the cast members of the film.
Simon McQuoid (on his feature directorial debut) directs the film, which is based on a screenplay by Greg Russo and Dave Callaham and a screen scenario by Russo and Oren Uziel. Cole Young is a disgraced MMA fighter who has no idea about his secret heritage or why assassin Sub-Zero is looking for him.
Concerned about his family's safety, he seeks out a group of warriors selected to protect Earthrealm against Outworld. Following the critical and financial failure of Mortal Kombat: Annihilation in 1997, a third Mortal Kombat film spent almost two decades in development hell.
In late 2010, Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line Cinema (whose parent company purchased the brand from Midway Games in 2009) started work on a new feature, with Kevin Tancharoen directing from a screenplay written by Uziel after their Mortal Kombat: Rebirth short film.
In August 2015, James Wan was confirmed as a producer, and in November 2016, McQuoid was revealed as the director. Adelaide Studios in Adelaide and other sites in South Australia were used for filming. The majority of the filming took place between September and December of this year.
Since the first Mortal Kombat film in 1995 and Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, which was both PG-13, this is the first live-action (and second in general) Mortal Kombat film to be rated R by the MPAA. Mortal Kombat was released in cinemas across the world on April 8, 2021, and in the United States on April 23, 2021, in IMAX theaters and on the HBO Max streaming service.
Critics appreciated the film's action scenes, musical soundtrack, acting (especially Lawson, Taslim, and Sanada), visual effects, and fidelity and allusions to the source material, but questioned the script, pace, and the inclusion of a new main character (unrelated to the games' mythology). The film earned $83.6 million globally and became HBO Max's most successful film premiere to date, with $83.6 million.
News of the World is a 2020 American Western drama film co-written and directed by Paul Greengrass, starring Tom Hanks and introducing Helena Zengel, and based on the 2016 book of the same name by Paulette Jiles.

On February 10, 2021, Netflix released the film in additional regions across the world. Critics complimented Hanks and Zengel's performances, as well as the cinematography, musical soundtrack, and direction by Greengrass.
