Matthew McConaughey Movie Unexpectedly Leaving HBO Max Next Week

Just after it was booted from Netflix, it appears the Matthew McConaughey movie The Lincoln Lawyer is also about to leave HBO Max. The flick, which stars the 52-year-old as its lead, left Netflix after November, but fans could still watch it on the WarnerMedia-backed streamer. And despite it not appearing in the initial list of titles set to depart the service, The Lincoln Lawyer now appears on the "Last Chance" tab with a message that reads "Leaving January 29."

It's an underrated movie that is often forgotten when discussing the body of work and life of the Oscar winner (and husband to Camila Alves). Fans and critics have praised the quality of the movie, with its Rotten Tomatoes scores in the 80-percent range and its Metacritic Metascore at 63. The movie's official synopsis, per Google Play, reads, "In the gripping thriller The Lincoln Lawyer, Matthew McConaughey stars as Michael "Mick" Haller, a slick, charismatic Los Angeles criminal defense attorney who operates out of the back of his Lincoln Continental sedan. Having spent most of his career defending petty, gutter- variety criminals, Mick unexpectedly lands the case of a lifetime: defending a rich Beverly Hills playboy (Ryan Phillippe) who is accused of attempted murder. However, what initially appears to be a straightforward case with a big money pay-off swiftly develops into a deadly match between two masters of manipulation and a crisis of conscience for Haller."


Luckily for McConaughey's faithful fans, HBO Max has a solid selection of titles starring the 52-year-old Hollywood A-lister. The crown jewel of this catalog is Season 1 of True Detective, in which he stars as an obsessive detective tracking down a serial killer. He won a Critics Choice Award for the performance, as well as Emmy and Golden Globe nominations. HBO Max also has several McConaughey flicks, such as Magic Mike, A Time to Kill, We Are Marshall, Two for the Money and Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation
