HBO released its long list of new movies and TV shows coming in next month, and it's going to be a busy May. (By busy, we mean busy on the couch.)


Of course, it isn't HBO or HBO Max without a plethora of older movies, including ​Anaconda​, ​17 Again​, ​Baby Boom​, ​Anger Management​, ​Free Willy​, ​The Cable Guy​, ​Frida​, ​Daddy Day Care​, ​Magic Mike​, ​Happy Feet​, ​Save The Last Dance​, ​Dumb and Dumber​, ​Rudy​, and so many more.


If those aren't enough to get you through the month, you'll also be able to watch original programming, including ​Adventure Time: Distant Lands – Together Again​, T​hat Damn Michael Che​, ​The Big Shot with Bethenny​, and ​Hack​.

Perhaps the most notable movie coming to HBO Max in May is ​Those Who Wish Me Dead​, a thriller starring Angelina Jolie that'll premiere in theaters and HBO Max on the same day. Make sure to watch it, because it will disappear after 30 days.
