HBO Max Announces Over 90 New Movies/TV Shows For May


Following hot on the heels of competitors like Netflix, Disney Plus and more, HBO Max is now here to supply us with its May lineup, and as usual, it’s a doozy.

Comprised of licensed titles, originals, TV shows and movies, there’s literally something for everyone. It’s an exhaustive list, no doubt, but among the highlights is definitely Christopher Nolan’s mind-bending Tenet, which hit theaters – well, the ones that were open – over the summer and is another thrilling effort from the always interesting director.

Admittedly, it didn’t make as big of a splash as some of his other films, and probably didn’t live up to Warner Bros.’ expectations, but a lot of that was obviously due to the pandemic and now that it’s arriving on HBO Max, a lot more people will get the chance to see it. Just be prepared to have your mind messed with, as it’s arguably the director’s most complicated and intricate piece of work yet.

But that’s hardly where the highlights for May end, and you can see the full and complete list of next month’s additions down below.
