What’s New on Netflix: May 2021

What's New on Netflix: May 2021

As odd as it sounds, Netflix is making up for quantity with quality this May!

I think all of those Oscar wins have opened Netflix’s eyes. Instead of the old days of the service just pumping out a million originals of dubious quality, this May sees the titan of streaming pivot to a lower volume of higher provenance films and series. It was hard to pick just the usual trio of offerings that caught our eye. In addition to the three films we selected, there’s at least a half dozen TV series and specials coming to Netflix that have my curiosity piqued. You really can’t go wrong with Netflix in May.

New and Notable

  • Super Me (May 8)

A struggling screenwriter discovers his lucrative ability to bring antiques from his dreams into the real world — but his new life soon unravels.

  • Oxygen (May 12)

French sci-fi thriller where a woman is awakened and has to think fast to survive.

  • Army of the Dead (May 21)

After a zombie outbreak in Las Vegas, a group of mercenaries takes the ultimate gamble by venturing into the quarantine zone for the greatest heist ever.
