May 2015 — Movies Opening This Month

Posted on May 1, 2015 at 8:00 am

Fasten your seatbelts!  Summer movies are here.  Tonight “Avengers: Age of Ultron” will explode into theaters.  It’s already a blockbuster overseas.

And for those of you who are looking for something more literary, “Far from the Madding Crowd” opens today as well, with Carey Mulligan as Thomas Hardy’s headstrong heroine wooed by three suitors.

Blockbusters are typically followed by comedies, so next week we will get two: “Hot Pursuit” with Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara and “The D Train” with Jack Black and James Marsden, along with “Bravetown.”

Then on May 15, 2015, two huge franchise films: “Pitch Perfect 2” and “Mad Max: Fury Road”  Acca-thrilling!

A week later, George Clooney stars in “Tomorrowland” and Sam Rockwell and Rosemary DeWitt get terrified by the remake of “Poltergeist.”

And on May 29, the earth will shake in “San Andreas.”
