Here is everything landing on HBO Max this May.

4 Comments

HBO Max has plenty coming to the streaming service for May 2021. This includes new movies, TV shows, original programming, and anime. However, a few of your favorites may be leaving as well. Check out everything coming and going from HBO Max in May below.

The biggest movie landing on the streaming service in May is none other than Christopher Nolan's Tenet. Hitting theaters during the pandemic, many people missed out on Nolan's time-bending heist thriller, which stars John David Washington. Luckily, you can watch the two and a half hour movie from the comfort of your own couch on May 1.

Also returning to HBO Max is December's Wonder Woman: 1984 on May 13. Because of streaming windows with movie studios, Wonder Woman: 1984 only had a limited window on HBO Max before disappearing for a bit. But if you missed it's debut on the streaming service, you can watch Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman take on Pedro Pascal's Maxwell Lord--who is the epitome of an informercial man from the '80s--for the first time. Or you can watch it again, if you'd like.

Speaking of movies that are leaving. Although Mortal Kombat arrives on April 23, the movie will leave the service on May 23. You have one month to watch Mortal Kombat as many times as humanly possible, before it disappears for a few months--ultimately returning to the WarnerMedia service. You have 30 days to finish it. Get it?

If anime is more of your thing, then you'll want to check out the latest Crunchyroll releases throughout the month. Re:ZERO - Starting Life in Another World - Season 2 releases on May 8, and Jujutsu Kaisen - Season 1 lands on May 10. Below, you'll find everything coming and going from HBO Max for May 2021.
