Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 – May 5

Perhaps the biggest movie of the month, the next Marvel Cinematic Universe film will wrap up the story of many of the famous cosmic superheroes that make up Guardians of the Galaxy. Watching Chris Pratt’s Peter Quill and the gang once again save the galaxy while searching for and being reunited with an emotionally distraught Gamora will be director James Gunn’s last Marvel film, now that he is co-boss at DC.

The Muppets Mayhem [Disney+] – May 10

Although they are not the entertainment titans they once were, The Muppets are still iconic, which is why it’s great to see them back and headlining their own series. The Muppets Mayhem will see the cast of puppets that make up the Electric Mayhem band looking to record their very first studio album, all with the help of many stars from the music world, be it Weird Al Yankovic, Tommy Lee, Ziggy Marley, Kesha and more.

The Mother [Netflix] – May 12

Netflix has a few big projects lined up for May, but the first film is undoubtedly the Jennifer Lopez-led, The Mother. In this film, J-Lo stars as a former hitman who is dragged back into the cutthroat world of contract killing to protect the daughter she gave up many years earlier. This world-changing film is designed to be action-packed and will test J-Lo’s acting talents.

Beau Is Afraid – May 19

Fast X – May 19

If Guardians Vol. 3 might be the biggest movie of the month, Fast X is what it struggles with.

FUBAR [Netflix] – May 25

Although many would assume Arnold Schwarzenegger’s days of kicking ass as a movie star are over, the star behind Terminator, Predator, Conan and countless other great action movies, is looking to make his TV debut in Netflix’s action series, FUBAR. Fubar sees Arnie shine as an ex-CIA agent dragged back into the field to save a troubled asset, and explores what happens when a mission finally reveals deep family secrets and brings father and daughter together as neither expected.
