Everything Coming To HBO And HBO Max In May 2021

HBO Max continues to slay the streaming game this month, pumping out a handful of original series and dropping some straight-from-theaters blockbusters to keep fans entertained.

We’re particularly hyped to finally see Tenet on the small screen — sorry, Christopher Nolan — and for Angelina Jolie to make a return to her action hero days. Oh, and there’s plenty of comedy coming too. Look out for Jean Smart’s new HBO Max dramedy and a Michael Che special.

Here’s everything coming to (and leaving) HBO and HBO Max this May.

Tenet
Christopher Nolan might not be pleased but we’re pretty thrilled that Tenet is finally coming to a streaming platform. If you didn’t catch this time-hopping thriller in theaters — and really, who did? — it follows John David Washington’s character on a mind-bending journey to prevent the start of another World War.

Those Who Wish Me Dead (Warner Bros. Film Premiere)
Angelina Jolie stars in this thriller along with Jon Bernthal and Nicholas Hoult. Jolie plays a veteran firefighter who, in the midst of a terrible inferno destroying the forests of Montana, must help a young boy on the run from a pair of twin assassins.

Hacks (HBO Max Original Series Premiere)
Emmy-winning icon Jean Smart stars in this dark comedy about a washed-up Las Vegas comic trying to get back into the stand-up game. To do it, she’s got to partner with a young up-and-coming comedy writer from Los Angeles who’s unimpressed with her material. Their odd-couple-like banter makes up the bulk of the entertainment here.
