This year, May means superhero sequels and starry debuts. From the much-awaited ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ to Bollywood star kid Tiger Shroff’s highly anticipated debut in ‘Heropanti’, these are the 10 movies you should watch out for this coming month.
1. The Amazing Spider-Man 2
Peter Parker is back to face new supervillains in this Spiderman sequel – releasing on May 1, courtesy a mystery company called Oscorp. Besides the usual cast of Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, you will see Jamie Foxx as the evil Electro and Dane DeHaan as the Green Goblin.
Any movie with Seth Rogen in it is a must-watch. And in this one – set for a May 9 release, he plays a new dad who lives with his family next to a frat house. He is pitted against frat boy Zac Efron when living next door to each other poses some unexpected difficulties.
Rajanikanth’s much-awaited ‘Kochadaiiyaan’ finally hits the theatres on May 9. This animated period film, which also stars Deepika Padukone, will have Rajanikanth playing three lead roles. This movie is going to be simultaneously released worldwide in more than eight languages.
4. Hawaa Hawaai
From the man who gave us ‘Stanley Ka Dabba’ and ‘Taare Zameen Par’ (uncredited) comes this new movie called ‘Hawaa Hawaai’, releasing on May 9. A tribute to people who dare to dream, ‘Hawaa Hawaai’ has Saqib Saleem playing a skating coach who trains his protégé, played by Partho Gupte.
5. Vishwaroopam 2
Another Tamil movie that has been highly anticipated is ‘Vishwaroopam 2’ (May 9), or ‘Vishwaroop II’ in Hindi. Directed and written by Kamal Haasan, who also plays the lead role in the movie, this sequel follows from the original spy thriller film and also stars Rahul Bose, Shekhar Kapur and Waheeda Rahman.
Hollywood will never tire of some movie ideas – and Godzilla is one of them. This Gareth Edwards directorial venture is the fourth Godzilla movie, releasing on May 16 – and is highly anticipated because this is the first movie Bryan Cranston will be appearing in after he became popular as Walter White in the show ‘Breaking Bad’.
7. X-Men: Days of Future Past
Probably the most awaited movie of this month, ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ releases on May 23. Whenever an ‘X-Men’ movie releases, fans always discuss how epic it is going to be. However, this one will truly be the mother of epicness – with Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy AND Sir Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart, as well as all the other X-Men getting together to battle it out against extinction of the mutant race.
Tiger Shroff has a lot of critics to prove wrong on May 23 – when ‘Heropanti’, his debut movie, releases. A romantic action movie about girl-meets-boy, fall in love, girl’s father opposes and hero has to battle a thousand other odds to get to his love, ‘Heropanti’ will also star newbie Kriti Sanon, Sandeepa Dhar, Vikram Singh and Shireesh Sharma.
9. The Xpose
If you missed the chance to watch ‘The Great Gatsby’, you can go watch this cheap Indian rip-off (stylistically). Himesh Reshammiya is back with this period thriller – and who should be making a debut in Bollywood with this one but Yo Yo Honey Singh? This is one of those movies that you may love or hate, but you definitely cannot ignore. ‘The Xpose’ hits theatres on May 23.
10. Kuku Mathur Ki Jhand Ho Gayi
The last week of May does not have any promising movies set for release – however ‘Kuku Mathur Ki Jhand Ho Gayi’ may just be worth a watch. The movie is about a boy who has nothing going for him, but has big plans of becoming a restaurateur. Starring Siddharth Gupta and Simran Kaur Mundi, this comedy film releases on May 30 and is just the breezy stuff that can make for a good summer watch.
