Here's what's coming to (and going from) HBO Max in May

Remember when Tenet was only showing in theaters in the middle of a freakin’ pandemic? Yeah, that sucked. Well, next month, you can finally watch it from the comfort of your own home on HBO Max and see if the negative reviews are accurate, or if you end up thinking it’s actually as good as Inception. And in case you missed out on Wonder Woman 1984 the first time around, the movie’s returning to HBO Max, too.

If neither of those blockbusters are your thing, there are thankfully tons of new movies and TV shows heading to HBO Max in May. Michael Che’s series That Damn Michael Che makes its debut, tackling themes like racial profiling, unemployment, and falling in love. The amazing Jean Smart has brought much needed levity to intense limited HBO series Mare Of Easttown and now she’s leading her own comedy series in HBO Max’s Hacks. And there’s also the Angelina Jolie-starring film Those Who Wish Me Dead, where she plays “a smokejumper reeling from the loss of three lives she failed to save from a fire, who comes across a traumatized 12‐year‐old boy with nowhere else to turn.”
