HBO Max is launching in Europe later this month, and to promote it, the streamer has dropped a teaser trailer for House of the Dragon, as well as clips from Peacemaker and Succession Season 3.
First things first… footage! Three of the most anticipated shows coming to HBO Max in the next few months were promoted today during an online event. First, we now have official footage from the Game of Thrones spin-off House of the Dragon, which is coming to HBO Max next year — a more specific date is yet to be announced, but most Game of Thrones seasons dropped during the spring.

HBO Max arrives in Europe with tons of content planned to be released either this year or in the near future. The same-day release strategy that Warner Bros. is pulling in the U.S. will not be available in the rest of the world, but the company announced today that Warner Bros. movies will have 45-day theatrical windows before they are available to HBO Max subscribers. That strategy will start this year in the Nordics, and will continue next year in Spain, Portugal, Netherlands, Greece, Iceland, and Central and Eastern Europe (via Variety).
The company also announced today the upgraded platform will keep its regular HBO pricing in those new territories. There’s a lot more information over at HBOMax.com.
Miguel Fernández is a Spanish student that has movies as his second passion in life. His favorite movie of all time is The Lord of the Rings, but he is also a huge Star Wars fan. However, fantasy movies are not his only cup of tea, as authors like Scorsese, Fincher, Kubrick or Hitchcock have been an obsession for him since he started to understand the language of filmmaking. He is that guy who will watch a black and white movie, just because it is in black and white.
