Leonardo DiCaprio plays an undercover state trooper in the Academy Award-winning film "The Departed."

HBO Max is only one month old, but the brand-new streaming service already has a stacked library of well-known shows and movies to stream. Starting next month, that catalog of titles is only going to get more impressive.

One of the star-studded films that will become available on HBO Max in July is “The Departed.” The 2006 crime film was directed by Martin Scorsese and has an all-star cast: Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, Jack Nicholson, Mark Wahlberg, Martin Sheen, Vera Farmiga, and Alec Baldwin. 

The film takes place in Boston and tells the story of Nicholson’s character, Irish mob boss Frank Costello, planting a mole—Damon’s character Colin Sullivan—in the Massachusetts State Police, who have placed undercover cop William Costigan (played by DiCaprio) in Costello’s crew. The film follows all three characters trying to find out who the “rat” is.

The critically-acclaimed film was both successful at the box office and during awards season. The movie won four Oscars—Best Director, Best Picture, Best Writing Adapted Screenplay, and Best Film Editing. Wahlberg earned an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor too.

Other notable titles coming to the streaming platform next month include the 1974 Mel Brooks-classic “Blazing Saddles,” the 1998 Steven Spielberg-epic “Saving Private Ryan,” the 2019 Edward Norton crime film “Motherless Brooklyn,” and the 2004 war movie “Troy” starring Brad Pitt.

But as new movies and shows join the streaming platform in July, others will be taking their leave. That list includes “Crazy Rich Asians,” “Casino Royale,” “When Harry Met Sally,” and “X-Men.”

Below is a complete list of every movie and television show that will become available on HBO Max next month.
