Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness,Â Eyes of fire,Â The tailor of the mafia,Â The weapon of deception,Â Game of assassins,Â Top Gun: Maverick… The movie premieres in May are warming up and, in case you are interested in seeing one in particular but you are not very interested in what is being released, we gather in this monthly section some of the most striking among those who have their date set in the Spanish theaters.
You are not a moviegoer, but you do like to watch movies and series? Then we recommend you to visit our other section of premieres New VOD releaseswhere we do the same every week, but with the main VOD platforms. Now let’s get down to business, there’s a lot to cut, but as you can see,Â Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of MadnessÂ is the title that tops the masthead.
May 6 movie releases
Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness
Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madnessÂ is not only the title that tops the section header, it is also one of the most anticipated movie releases and one of the potential blockbusters of the year, given the success of Marvel superhero movies, however repetitive and anodyne they may be. In any case, if itâ¤?s about having a good time at the movies, itâ¤?s a great movie Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madnessÂ shouldn’t miss. Directed by Sam Raimi (Spider-Man,Â Evil Dead) and starring Benedict Cumberbatch in the company of other UCM stars such as Elizabeth Olsen (Wanda),Â Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madnessÂ premieres as early as tomorrow (and, in a couple of months or so, on Disney+).
Another release arriving in theaters tomorrow, Friday, May 6, that has nothing to do with the previous one isÂ Red Rocketa dramedy about the attempt of redemption of a porn ex-actor in low hours that the truth is that the critics are really liking it and has already received awards at festivals such as Cannes, as well as in several associations of critics. The curious thing about the case, however, is that the film has more reality than it seems, for the role and interpreter protagonist.
May 13 movie releases
One of the most striking releases a priori of the second week of May isÂ Eyes of Firea new film adaptation of the well-known horror novel by the master of the genre Stephen King in which apart from the unknown protagonist of the story (you know, the girl with the “eyes of fire”) we will find more recurring faces such as Zac Effron (High School Musical,Â Baywatch: The Beachwatchers) or Kurtwood Smith (Those wonderful 70’s,Â Patriot), among others.
Mark Wahlberg (Boogie Nights,Â Ted,Â Uncharted) is at the forefront of the cast ofÂ The Miracle of Father StuÂ in one of those stories that suit him quite well, in this case, that of Â “a boxer turned priest who inspired countless people during his journey from self-destruction to redemption.” The film is a drama with a lot of religious healing and not only that, it is primarily a biopic, therefore based on real events, or at least inspired by them. Alongside Wahlberg is another classic of hard-boiled cinema, Mel Gibson (Max Max,Â Lethal Weapon,Â Braveheart).
May 20 movie releases
The third week of May is perhaps the biggest week of the month, thanks to movie releases such asÂ The Mafia Tailora period crime drama starring Zoey Deutch (Did it have to be him?,Â Zombieland: Kill and finish off), Dylan O’Brien (The Maze Runner,Â Love and monsters) or Mark Rylance (Dunkirk*Player*), among others, whose title and setting, 1950s Chicago, tell you almost everything you need to know to put it in your sights. For more, the trailer… and the review, which is liking it.
The weapon of deceptionÂ is the new film by veteran British director John Madden, who began his career in television with unrepeatable series likeÂ The StorytellerÂ or those of Jeremy Brettâ¤?s Sherlock Holmes, although he gained his fame in the cinema with classics such asÂ Shakespeare in LoveÂ oÂ Captain Corelli’s Mandolin. For this new film, a period drama set in World War II, he surrounds himself with talented compatriots such as Colin Firth (The King’s Speech,Â Mamma Mia), Kelly Macdonald (Boardwalk Empire,Â Trainspotting), Matthew Macfadyen (Pride and Prejudice.Â Succession) and more. And since it was released in the UK last month, we can say that the critics are also liking it.
If you are the type of person who enjoys action dramas, Â Assassin’s GameÂ is an archetypalÂ thrillerÂ police thriller that, however, no matter how repeated its formula fails, when things are done well. And since this film was also released some time ago on the other side of the pond, it is expected that the critics were quite happy after seeing it. We are talking about the latest from Joe Carnahan (The A-Team,Â White Hell), reunited for the occasion with experienced actors in the genre such as Gerard Butler (300,Â Greenland) or Frank Grillo (The Purge: Night of the Beasts,Â Die againalso directed by Carnahan).
A espaÃ±olada. At least one:Â Mirror, mirrora comedy full of well-known faces in these parts such as Antonio Resines, Loles LeÃ³n, Maria AdÃ¡nez, Toni Acosta, Malena Alterio, Carlos Bardem, Carlos Areces, Santi MillÃ¡n, Silvia Abascal, Tito Valverde and, as a posthumous work, VerÃ³nica ForquÃ©. If you know that this is a comedy and after reviewing the cast that populates it, you still do not know what to expect, I recommend you watch the trailer carefully, because you are more lost than an octopus in a garage.
Less West and more East with ***The Deer King,*** an anime based on the novels of Nahoko Uehashi that later had its adaptation in manga format and now does the same as an animated film. And it smells of Studio Ghibli with good reason: there is, among others, Masashi Ando, animation director of that masterpiece calledÂ Spirited AwayÂ and also of the more recent Â Your Name. A very good news is that it will be dubbed into Spanish and Catalan (here the trailer in Catalan).
May 26th and 27th movie releases
In the penultimate week of May, the last for practical purposes as far as movie premieres are concerned, comes one of theÂ blockbustersThe most anticipated blockbusters of the last few years… at least in the United States. Although being compromising, we can qualify it as one of the most talked about, not in vain was to be released in 2020 and has waited until now to exploit as much as possible the box office. And the fact is thatÂ Top Gun: MaverickÂ revisits the story of these U.S. Army aviators thirty years later, with Tom Cruise in the lead and Val Kilmer making a fleeting reappearance almost out of necessity. Letâ¤?s see if they get the expected effect or if they fail. It comes out on the 26th.
Are you a lover of classic detective novels? If you like this literary style and its serial and cinematographic adaptations, those old crime stories that made so popular fictional characters like Sherlock Holmes or Hercule Poirot, Jules Maigret is the French counterpart of these and the French counterpart of the classic detective novels MaigretÂ the last adaptation to see the light of day, of course of French production and spearheaded by the legendary Frenchman GÃ©rard Depardieu (Cyrano de Bergerac,Â Asterix and Obelix) playing the veteran commissioner of the judicial police.
We finish the monthly review of the most outstanding that the Spanish billboard will have to offer to its long-suffering users withÂ Jujutsu Kaisen 0: The Moviea full-fledged extension of the anime that does not change the director, or tone, or anything. It is the same, but as a prequel, so it can serve to access the series if it has not yet been done. The most interesting thing is that although there will be cinemas that will show it in Japanese with subtitles, it will have a dubbed version in Spanish. It is the first time that Crunchyroll ventures into this and here is another important fact: if you can not or do not want to go to see it at the cinema, you will have it later, along with the series, on the platformÂ streaming.
