One of HBO Max’s big advantages is WarnerMedia’s massive catalog of classic movies, and today, it’s unveiling the full list of titles.

Between Warner Bros. classics, Criterion Collection titles, and licensed classics from third-party studios (including Studio Ghibli), HBO Max will play home to hundreds of beloved movies, ranging from The Wizard of Oz, Gone with the Wind, and Citizen Kane to Point Blank and King Kong. Not all of the classics landing on Max will be available day one, but most will, according to the company. HBO Max launches on May 27th for $14.99 a month.

HBO Max is set to launch with more than 700 movies. Some of those movies will be Warner Bros. blockbusters, like films from the DC Universe (The Dark Knight, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Aquaman, Shazam to name a few) or The Matrix trilogy. It’s unclear how many are exclusive to HBO Max (like the Studio Ghibli collection), but The Verge has asked WarnerMedia for clarification.

Classic films are just as important to Max as new original series and having a library of beloved TV shows. HBO Max will be the exclusive home to Friends, one of the most popular series that streamed on Netflix until it left the platform earlier this year. Plus, HBO Max will carry every HBO series, from The Sopranos to Sex and the City and Game of Thrones. That’s on top of shows from TBS, TNT, and more. It’s similar to Disney Plus, which has a plethora of older titles from its library alongside new films and TV shows, or NBCUniversal’s Peacock, which pulls from both Universal and NBC’s vast catalogs.

HBO Max will continue to add to the list of classic movies that subscribers will be able to stream in the months following the service’s initial launch. For now, here is the full list of announced Warner Bros. classic movies and films from the Criterion Collection heading to HBO Max:
