What's coming and going on HBO Now in August.

August brings two Academy Award winners to HBO — “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” with Oscar-winning performances by Francis McDormand and Sam Rockwell, and “Darkest Hour,” which won for actor Gary Oldman and his makeup as Winston Churchill — and the all-star Agatha Christie mystery “Murder on the Orient Express” with Kenneth Branagh as Hercule Poirot.

August also marks the launch of two new series — the free-form late-night program “Random Acts of Flyness” and animated “Esme & Roy,” for young kids from the producers of “Sesame Street”— and new seasons of “Animals,” “Ballers” and “Insecure.”

Older titles coming back to the service include the Coen Brothers’ “Fargo”; “The Blind Side,” starring Sandra Bullock; “The Fugitive” with Harrison Ford and sequel “U.S. Marshals” with Tommy Lee Jones; and “Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang” with Robert Downey Jr.
