The month of May is shaping up to be a month of relative deconfinement. But if you still want to stay home to watch movies and series, Netflix has it covered. This is what is scheduled for May 2021 on the SVOD platform.
In May, do what you want, they say. While a certain deconfinement is looming on the horizon, you will have the choice: go out for the air or binge watcher content on Netflix. Each month, the subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) platform adds films and series to its catalog. The list for May has arrived. Numerama takes the opportunity to take stock.
Two films could hold your attention, with on the one hand Oxygen, by Alexandre Aja, with Mélanie Laurent and Mathieu Almaric, and on the other hand Army of the Dead, directed by Zack Snyder, starring Dave Bautista. As for the series, Eden intrigues us and we await the continuation of Love, Death & Robots. As always, the renewal of the catalog mixes original works and acquisitions of rights.
Here are the new movies, series and docuses to follow on Netflix France in May 2021.
