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 6
Why? If you've been following along with the Marvel cinematic universe, then this is a no-brainer. Especially if you've read the source material, which I recently did.
week of May 13
Director: Greg McLean
Why? Because Kevin Bacon was killed the original Friday the 13th, so it's only appropriate that he star in a horror movie being released on a Friday the 13th.
Director: Yorgos Lanthimos
Why? Our society assumes that something is wrong with you if you can't find a partner, so is it really so unrealistic to imagine a world where you're punished if you can't pair up?
Director: Ben Wheatley
Why? Looks sufficiently bizarre.
Director: Rodrigo García
Why? Looks interesting, but mainly because of Ewan McGregor.
Director: Bo Mikkelsen
Why? Hey look, it's a zombie movie!
week of May 20
Why? Looks like it will be pretty entertaining.
Director: Nicholas Stoller
Why? Enjoyed the first one, so I'm hoping this one will be good too.
Director: Shane Black
Why? Every once in awhile a buddy cop movie comes along and nails it.
week of May 27
Director: Bryan Singer
Why? It's the X-Men!
Director: James Bobin
Why? Many, many reasons.
