May 2015 Movie Guide

The Rock and Carla Gugino in San Andreas

Summer starts this Friday!!  These are my picks (complete with the reason for my choice) for the movies coming to theaters in May, but feel free to check out all of May's releases by visiting the Internet Movie Database's Coming Soon page.


week of May 1

The Avengers in action!
Director: Joss Whedon
Why? If you don't already know, then I can't help you. ASSEMBLE!


week of May 8

#HotPursuit
Director: Anne Fletcher
Why? This looks like it has a little potential… and it's the only one currently listed for this particular week.


week of May 15

Mad Max: Fury Road
Director: George Miller
Why? The only real question here is why don't I have enough time to rewatch the original trilogy of this series?


week of May 22

Tomorrowland - click to see the rest of this gif set
Director: Brad Bird
Why? Disney has gone beyond making movies based on their rides and started making them based on entire sections of their park. And they've trusted this one with a director who has an impressive resume that includes The Incredibles and Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol.

Melissa McCarthy in Spy
Director: Paul Feig
Why? If you didn't see Tammy, you missed out. Consider me a Melissa McCarthy fan.

Poltergeist - click to see the rest of this gif set... if you dare!
Director: Gil Kenan
Why? While it can't be denied that the original is a classic, this looks truly, truly terrifying.


week of May 29

San Andreas - Who will you be with?
Director: Brad Peyton
Why? It's The Rock vs an earthquake of massive proportions.  Why not??

Director: Leigh Whannell
Why? Can't stop won't stop going to see quality scary movies like this. Leigh Whannell gave us Saw, and I haven't looked back ever since.

Director: Cameron Crowe

Why? Someone put Emma Stone and Rachel McAdams in the same movie?! Someone up there likes us. I mean, Bill Murray's in this one too. Squee!
