HBO / Warner Bros


We truly are living in the golden age of television, aren’t we? There are more good shows and movies available now than ever before in history. And it’s all thanks to our favorite online streaming services.

Speaking of our favorite online streaming services, here’s what’s new for the month of May 2021 on HBO and HBO Max.

During the month of May, Academy Award winner Angelina Jolie stars in the thriller Those Who Wish Me Dead, debuting in theaters and on HBO Max May 14. The film follows Hannah (Jolie), a smoke jumper still reeling from the loss of three lives she failed to save from a fire when she comes across a traumatized 12-year-old boy with nowhere else to turn.

Christopher Nolan’s Tenet starring John David Washington and Robert Pattinson also makes its streaming debut in May. Wonder Woman 1984 also returns to HBO Max during the month.

An excellent line-up of original programming also arrives in May with new comedy series That Damn Michael Che and Hacks, which explores a dark mentorship that forms between Deborah Vance (Jean Smart), a legendary Las Vegas comedian, and an entitled, outcast 25-year-old (Hannah Einbinder).

This month also brings season two of Legendary and two-part documentary The Crime of the Century from Academy Award-winning director Alex Gibney.

Among the many new movies that will be added are Black Hawk Down, The Cable Guy, Dumb & Dumber, Life of Pi, and 300: Rise of an Empire.

In addition to all of that, on May 6-9, the 2021 TCM Classic Film Festival comes to HBO Max, featuring more than 100 films and over 30 special guests across Turner Classic Movies’ premiere on the platform. Viewers will be able to take a deep dive into numerous classic films paired with exclusive talent interviews and behind the scenes access.

Here’s everything else is coming to HBO and HBO Max in the month of May…
