Netflix has released the list of films and TV shows that will be newly released on the streaming service in May 2019. Of particular interest is the fact that Best Picture winner Moonlight comes to Netflix in mid-May, offering a chance to soak up filmmaker Barry Jenkins’ masterful drama as many times as you like. Also noteworthy: the entire Matrix trilogy will be available, as will Bong Joon-ho’s stellar sci-fi drama Snowpiercer. Other noteworthy additions include classics like Gremlins and Mr. Mom, rewatchable comedies like Dumb and Dumber and Just Friends, and the iconic horror film Scream. Oh, and if you want to prep for Rian Johnson’s upcoming murder mystery Knives Out, give Robert Altman’s stellar Gosford Park a spin.
In terms of originals, the “Zac Efron is Ted Bundy” movie Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile arrives in May, as does the Allison Williams horror-thriller The Perfection, the Amy Poehler-directed comedy Wine Country, and the Ali Wong/Randall Park romantic comedy Always Be My Maybe.
TV-wise, the new Netflix season of Lucifer hits in May, as do the latest seasons of The Flash, Supergirl, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and Riverdale shortly after they wrap up on The CW, but the highlight of May has to be Ava DuVernay’s incredible-looking Central Park Five limited series When They See Us.
