We know there are lots of great options at the movie theater next month, but when you’re not busy seeing Avengers: Age of Ultron or Mad Max: Fury Road, you might want to take in a movie in the privacy of your own home. You’re in luck because there are just as many great options hitting DVD and Blu-ray in May. Read on for our guide to what’s hitting shelves next month.

Avengers: Age of Ultron doesn’t hit American theaters for another week, but Marvel’s latest superhero epic opens today in many theaters around the world. This means that you need to tread cautiously if you want to avoid spoilers, but it also means that Amazon.co.uk is already offering its users the chance to pre-order the film on Blu-ray and DVD. We know that the window between theatrical and home releases are shrinking, but that’s just ludicrous. However, it’s the details about the disc that should get fans stroking their chins and saying “Hmmm.”

‘Mortdecai’ Is Being Cut Down to a PG-13 Rating For VOD

Lionsgate
In year already filled with high-profile box-office flops, Mortdecai is definitely in the running for the most spectacular of the bunch, challenged only by Jupiter Ascending. If we were to count every reason this Johnny Depp comedy bombed with critics and audiences, we’d need a few hands, but we can boil it down to one key factor: It looked about as obnoxious as movies can get. But Lionsgate seems to think that the film’s R-rating may have been to blame, hence their unusual decision to recut the film into a family-friendly PG-13 version for its VOD release.

Try to Battle My Boys? That’s Not Legal: In Defense of ‘Ghostbusters II’

I’m about to say something that I never thought I would say in my entire life. It makes me sick to my stomach to even type such heresy, but here goes: Bill Murray is wrong. I’m getting out ahead of all the impending ‘Ghostbusters II’ hate right now. ‘Ghostbusters II’ is not a bad sequel. It’s not a great sequel either, but it’s a totally satisfying follow-up. It doesn’t reinvent the wheel the way the first film did by blending of horror, science-fiction, and comedy into a unique and irresistible genre hybrid. But it keeps things rolling in a frothy, entertaining, and occasionally profound way. (You heard me.)

It feels like several years have passed since Christopher Nolan released ‘Interstellar,’ but that’s just because I’m still stuck on that tidal-wave planet where time dilates and stuff. In reality, it’s only been a couple months since Nolan’s latest epic sci-fi film, which opened to positive reviews and, despite its heady subject matter, went on to earn more than $660 million worldwide. Love it or hate it, you have to at least respect the fact that Nolan’s still making huge blockbusters based on original ideas and deeply personal subject matter—as opposed to board games or toys or something.
