Guardians of the galaxy Vol. 3, Fast & Furious X o Knights of the Zodiac are some of the most anticipated movie releases for May 2023, but not the only ones. In fact, there are many films coming to Spanish theaters this month and, from all of them, we gather below a small selection specifically for evasion, not for recrimination. At least let it be fun, or at least try to be, right?
But, as we always remind you in this double-entry, these film premieres refer only to the Spanish billboard, although in the case of films with international projection, it is very likely that they can also be seen wherever you are, if it is not Spain. And, of course, if you are not a moviegoer, but rather enjoy things from the comfort of your own home, at VOD New Releases you have everything new from the streaming.
May 4 movie releases
It all started yesterday, Thursday, but only for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3the only premiere to hit the billboards with the farewell of one of the best franchises that the Marvel Cinematic Universe (UCM) has left us since its inception. The end of an era that has brought us many joys, but that has been left in the past by own demerits, or simply because they are still determined to crush a formula that no longer gives for more. Be that as it may, farewell, guardians!
