Most popular movies on Max this week

One of the best parts of subscribing to streaming services is discovering recent movies that you missed out on when they were initially released. 

That's what's happening with the 2021 crime thriller "The Little Things," which is currently trending on Max. The film stars Rami Malek and Denzel Washington as a pair of detectives hunting for a Los Angeles serial killer. As the two get closer to solving the case, it dredges up a dark secret from one of the detectives' pasts.

Meanwhile, three "Godzilla" movies are trending on Max shortly after the release of "Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire," the most recent installment in the Warner Bros. "Monsterverse" franchise that hit theaters on March 29. If you want to revisit 2014's "Godzilla," 2019's "Godzilla: King of the Monsters," and 2021's "Godzilla vs. Kong," you're in good company on Max.
