May Streaming Guide: What to Watch on Netflix, Hulu, and More


Zack Snyder goes from superheroes to zombies, Angelina Jolie fights fire with fire, and Emma Stone explores the outrageous origins of a Disney villainess in May’s top streaming picks.



What to Watch on Netflix: May 2021

After the redemptive success of Zack Snyder’s Justice League (aka “The Snyder Cut”), director Zack Snyder tackles a zombie heist film with Army of the Dead (Netflix, May 21). After a zombie outbreak in Las Vegas, a group of mercenaries takes a risky gamble by venturing into the quarantine zone to pull off the greatest heist ever. The eclectic cast includes Dave Bautista, Omari Hardwick, Ella Furnell, and Tig Notaro (who digitally replaced Chris D’Elia in the role of a helicopter pilot after the comedian faced allegations of sexual misconduct). It’s The Dawn of the Dead meets Ocean’s 11—and could be the beginning of a fun franchise that brings new life to the zombie genre.

For Dave Bautista, ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Is Just the Beginning

What to Watch on HBO Max: May 2021

In the pulse-pointing action thriller Those Who Wish Me Dead (May 14, HBO Max), a smokejumper (Angelina Jolie) comes to the aid of a 12‐year‐old boy (Finn Little) who has just witnessed the murder of his father (Jake Weber) near a large national forest. Together, they must outwit a pair of assassins (Aiden Gillen and Nicholas Hoult) who’ll do anything to cover up their tracks—including burning down the forest. The heat is on in Yellowstone creator Taylor Sheridan’s intense adaptation of Michael Korda’s novel, a survival story that gives Jolie both her most badass role since Salt and her most emotional role since Changeling.

What to Watch on Disney Plus: May 2021

101 Dalmatians’ Cruella de Vil gets an explanatory origin story for her evil exploits in the punk-rock prequel Cruella (May 28, Disney Plus). Set in 1970s London, the film follows Estella (Emma Stone) a fledgling fashion designer who’s grifting on the streets of London when her daring designs catch the eye of the legendary fashionista Baroness von Hellman (Emma Thompson). But is the Baroness her mentor—or tormentor? What happens next will eventually transform our heroine Estella into the villainess Cruella—and explain (but not justify!) why she wants to make a fur coat out of dogs. Cruella is Disney’s more devilish take on The Devil Wears Prada.

What to Watch on Amazon Prime: May 2021

Expectations are high for The Underground Railroad (May 14, Amazon Prime), as Colson Whitehead’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel gets the television series treatment from Moonlight director Barry Jenkins. A mere movie couldn’t contain the sprawling story of this audacious alternate history, which follows Cora Randall (Thuso Mbedu) as she attempts to escape slavery (and a bounty hunter, played by Joel Edgerton) in the antebellum South via a literal Underground Railroad. It’s a gut-wrenching, heart-stirring ride.

What to Watch on Hulu: May 2021

The quest for contraception fuels director Natalie Morales’ raunchy, rollicking road trip comedy Plan B (May 28, Hulu). After a regrettable first sexual encounter, a straight-laced high school student (Kuhoo Verma) and her slacker best friend (Victoria Moroles) have 24 hours to cross South Dakota state lines in order to find a Plan B pill. Part Superbad, part Unpregnant, Plan B brings laughter to the morning after.
