The Suicide Squad is hitting HBO Max on Thursday, Aug. 5, and we finally know what time to expect it.

Originally scheduled to be released on Aug. 6, The Suicide Squad ended up being moved up by a day in theaters, but it took some time for a confirmation that the same would happen on HBO Max. We now have that official confirmation.

The Suicide Squad will debut on HBO Max on Thursday, Aug. 5, at 7pm Eastern/4pm Pacific. It will only be available on the ad-free plan, and only for 31 days from its release. It will then be exclusive to theaters for 31 days, and will eventually return to HBO Max in a few months.

No matter how you want to watch it, mark your calendars for Aug. 5.

“Welcome to hell — a.k.a. Belle Reve, the prison with the highest mortality rate in the US of A. Where the worst Super-Villains are kept and where they will do anything to get out—even join the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X. Today’s do-or-die assignment? Assemble a collection of cons, including Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin and everyone’s favorite psycho, Harley Quinn. Then arm them heavily and drop them (literally) on the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese.”

“Trekking through a jungle teeming with militant adversaries and guerrilla forces at every turn, the Squad is on a search-and-destroy mission with only Colonel Rick Flag on the ground to make them behave…and Amanda Waller’s government techies in their ears, tracking their every movement. And as always, one wrong move and they’re dead (whether at the hands of their opponents, a teammate, or Waller herself). If anyone’s laying down bets, the smart money is against them—all of them.”

The Suicide Squad is due to hit theaters and HBO Max on Aug. 5, 2021 in the U.S.
