It’s time to take a look at what Sky Cinema has to offer us this May! There are some solid new movies in the lineup this month, and a trio of action-packed collections to look forward to, including the entire Men in Black franchise and a slew of Mission: Impossible movies.
Without further ado, here’s everything coming to Sky Cinema in May…
Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood – May 1st
Quentin Tarantino‘s 60s-set tale stars Leonardo DiCaprio as TV actor Rick Dalton and Brad Pitt as his stunt double, Cliff Booth, while a twisting LA story leads up to the murders of Sharon Tate and Leno LaBianca at the hands of Manson family members. Kinda.
Charming (2018) – May 2nd
Prince Philippe Charming is cursed to propose to every woman he meets, and has to find his true love by his 21st birthday or face the prospect of never being king. Demi Lovato, Sia, Avril Lavigne, Ashley Tisdale and John Cleese provide the voices in this animated tale.
Dora and the Lost City of Gold – May 8th
A teen version of Dora the Explorer has to save her adventurous parents and solve a jungle mystery. It’s really quite good, and we deserve many sequels.
Stuber – May 9th
Uber driver Stu picks up a cop looking for the drug dealer who murdered his partner. An old school action buddy comedy with Dave Bautista and Kumail Nanjiani.
Alita: Battle Angel – May 15th
Directed by Robert Rodriguez and produced by James Cameron, Alita took the better part of two decades to create for the screen. The result? A hot mess well worth checking out.
Curious George: Royal Monkey (2019) – May 16th
George accidentally swaps places with an identical-looking Royal Monkey. Should keep the kids entertained for an hour or so.
Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw – May 22nd
In the Fast & Furious spinoff, Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) partners with Deckard Shaw (The Statham) to save the world, as Idris Elba repeatedly gets in their way. Utterly ludicrous stuff, but you knew that.
Crawl (2019) – May 29th
The Hills Have Eyes director Alexandre Aja brings some tight horror magic to the story of blonde bad-ass Haley, who sets out to rescue her depressed father in the middle of a huge Category 5 hurricane. Many alligators, who are out for a swim in the resulting floodwaters, are like “cool, lunch”.
Men in Black – May 8th–10th
Spend the first May bank holiday weekend watching all four Men in Black films on Sky Cinema. What else are you doing?
The whole collection will be available: Men in Black (1997), Men in Black II (2002), Men in Black 3 (2012), Men in Black: International (2019)
Mission Impossible – May 22nd–25th
The second May bank holiday weekend brings us the Mission: Impossible collection. John Woo, Brian De Palma, J.J. Abrams, Christopher McQuarrie and more have all helmed instalments to date, with varying degrees of success.
Highlights: Mission: Impossible (1996), Mission: Impossible III, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, Mission: Impossible – Fallout
Fast & Furious – May 18th–25th
To promote the Sky Cinema debut of Hobbs & Shaw, you’ll be able to watch the first six Fast & Furious films. There’ll also be a special retrospective about the history of the franchise.
