Spring has sprung up. Flowers bud on the trees, birds begin to migrate north, and the endless days of winter are finally over. Spring of this year also means that many films are finally coming out after their theatrical releases were delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many of the movies on this list found their way onto streaming services after last year’s limbo, making May a good month to dive into new offerings.
Stacker went through the list of May additions to major streamers like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and HBO Max and picked 15 great movies that represent a wide range of cinematic expressions. They are presented in alphabetical order.
In addition to the brand new releases that are finally seeing the light of day, older films will be available to stream. They include an epic zombie movie set in Vegas, a documentary about one of American children’s television’s greatest heroes, and several classic films spanning everything from the story of an honest cop to a criminal epic on a Cuban immigrant who became a drug lord in the 1980s in Miami. The oldest film originally came out in 1971 and the most recent original release debuts this month. These films feature Hollywood legends, a country singer, and even a former football star who went on to be the center of one of the most sensational celebrity trials in modern history.
Turn off the lights, find a cozy spot on the couch, and join Stacker as we’ve got 15 movies you can stream this month.
