Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Fast & Furious X either Knights of the Zodiac They are some of the most anticipated film releases for this May 2023, which are not the only ones. In fact, there are many films that arrive in Spanish theaters this month and, of all of them, we have collected below a small specific selection for evasion, not for recrimination. Let it at least be fun or try, right?
But, as we always remind you in this double lead, these film releases 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 that is the case. It’s not Spain. And, of course, if you don’t like going to the movies, but enjoy things from the comfort of your home, in VOD News you have everything new streaming.
Movie releases on May 4
It all started yesterday Thursday, although only for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, the only premiere to reach the billboards with the farewell to 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 much joy, but which has remained in the past due to its own demerits, or simply because they are still determined to crush a formula that no longer works. Be that as it may, goodbye, Guardians!
Movie premieres on May 5
Already on Friday the new Stephen Frears (High Fidelity, hero by accident, A very English scandal), a drama with touches of obvious madness in which The Lost KingRichard III of England himself, will be found first by archaeologists, then by a history buff… in her own way.
We continue with the French my crimea period dramedy -with less drama than comedy, go ahead- with touches of intrigue and good bearing in which an investigator must solve the murder of a Parisian banker, with a picturesque group of suspects, among which a vindictive young woman stands out. .
Another outstanding premiere for this Friday is that of the good companies, a Spanish film co-produced with France halfway between drama and social denunciation, also with a claim around the feminist fight for the right to abortion. As the most well-known face, that of Itziar Ituño (The Money Heist, errementary). Based on real events.
Another Spanish one, also with drama and social criticism as pillars, but with a dose of suspense is siegea film in which a riot police officer will discover a plot of police corruption and that his enemies are not the Nigerian squatters he has just evicted, but the system for which he works.

Who enjoys my crime and you are left wanting more, but a little more serious, keep in mind Marlowe an option to satisfy your detective cravings: an Irish production directed by veteran Neil Jordan (interview with the vampire, crying game) and starring Liam Neeson (*schindler’s list, Taken) it’s a remake from the classic movie.
Book Club – Now ItalyFor its part, it is the sequel to the 2018 film, with the same feel of a romantic comedy from the third -and wealthy- age starring an ensemble cast full of old glories: Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Andy García, Don Johnson …
In the bounty hunter We change the third with a revenge western also starring two veterans, yes, very fit as they are Christoph Waltz (Damn bastards, django unchained) and Willem Dafoe (spider-man, platoon).

In the penultimate week of May it opens Fast & Furious X, the tenth installment of the popular action franchise headed by Vin Diesen, always well surrounded by a wide cast of very handsome or beefy Hollywood stars. This time Jason Momoa, Michelle Rodríguez, Charlize Theron, Brie Larson are out there… More of the same, but…
If instead of action you prefer drama, A person It brings you from that, although it seems to be more of the same too, the typical story of loss and forgiveness with a tearful tone. Where is the interest then? In the leading couple: Florence Pugh (black widow, midsummer) and Morgan Freeman (Seven, Life imprisonment).
No action, no drama: Shark in sight! It is a French comedy with a tacky whiff that, however, seems funny at the same time profane, since it is enough to see the trailer to, worth the redundancy, see that it is a kind of parody of the classic Shark.
