Avengers: Age of Ultron (May 1)
Mad, mad drama unfolds among our favorite Marvel superheroes when one of Tony Stark's plans goes horribly awry and awakens an uber Big Bad known as Ultron. Joss Whedon's last entry into the Avengers franchise has gotten delicious reviews so far, so don't hold those foot-in-mouth junket moments against Captain America and his pals.
See it if you love a good popcorn movie.
Skip it if indies are more your speed.
Far From The Madding Crowd (May 1)
Carey Mulligan stars as a whipsmart Victorian heroine named Bathsheba in this adaptation of the classic Thomas Hardy novel, and while she's got a few suitors to choose from, this ain't no Jane Austen joint. Matthias Schoenaerts, Tom Sturridge, and Michael Sheen play her prospective paramours.
See it if you have a spot soft for period pieces (and/or dreamboats like Schoenaerts).
Skip it if you can't stand 19th-century literature and/or restrictive garments.
Welcome to Me (May 1)
Kristen Wiig plays Alice, a woman with borderline personality disorder who, shortly going off her meds, wins millions of dollars in the lottery. Naturally, she uses some of her winnings to buy her own talk show in the hopes of becoming the next Oprah.
See it if you like dark indies.
Skip it if awkwardness makes you itch.
Hot Pursuit (May 8)
Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara costar as an odd couple on the run in this comedy/actioner. Witherspoon plays an uptight cop whose latest assignment is to protect the widow of a drug lord who's got all sorts of baddies after her. Can they make it across Texas unscathed?
See it if you want to see ladies in action.
Skip it if The Heat left you cold.
Mad Max: Fury Road (May 15)
Writer/director George Miller returns to the post-apocalyptic freak show made famous in three previous Mad Max flicks, but this time around, he's got Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron as the lead badasses trekking across the Wasteland.
See it if you're living for Charlize Theron as a warrior with a shaved head, and/or you enjoy violence and mayhem.
Skip it if you most certainly would like to avoid violence and mayhem.
