Clint Eastwood is back with a new western that you can watch at home and in theaters, but you can only stream it for a limited time. Directed by and starring Eastwood, "Cry Macho" will remain available to stream on HBO Max through October 17.

Mike Milo, an injured rodeo rider played by Eastwood, goes on a journey through rural Mexico to help his old boss find his son. Searching for a fresh start, Milo encounters more than he anticipated, including Macho the rooster. The movie is based on N. Richard Nash's novel that was released in 1975.

According to Variety, Eastwood first considered directing and starring in a "Cry Macho" movie in 1988. Instead, he decided to star in the final "Dirty Harry" film, "The Dead Pool." "Cry Macho" is Eastwood's first movie to receive a simultaneous theatrical and streaming release.

Where to watch 'Cry Macho'

"Cry Macho" is now available to watch in theaters and on HBO Max with an ad-free subscription. The Clint Eastwood movie will remain part of the HBO Max streaming catalog until October 17.

After "Cry Macho" leaves HBO Max, the movie will be exclusively available in theaters until it receives a home video release later this year.

A subscription to HBO Max's ad-free plan costs $15 a month. Although the streaming service has a less expensive ad-supported plan for $10 a month, only the ad-free HBO Max plan gives you access to same-day theatrical releases like "Cry Macho."

If you're a Hulu subscriber and have not previously tried HBO Max, you can claim a free one-week trial of the add-on service.
