Here we continue a new monthly section that will offer a quick go-to list of what’s coming to cinemas, VOD & SVOD services and gaming platforms over the coming weeks.

This is not a complete list, it is rather one that shows the big and some smaller titles. The titles are separated by date and sorted by movie first, then TV and then game.

May sees the beginning of the summer movie season with Marvel’s “Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness” and the long-awaited “Top Gun: Maverick”, along with the “Firestarter” remake, the sequel to the “Downton Abbey” movie, the re-creation of “Chip ‘ n Dale: Rescue Rangers “, Alex Garland’s new movie” Men “, the WW2 story” Operation Mincemeat “and” Bob’s Burgers Movie “.

On the television front, the biggest launches are the “Obi-Wan Kenobi” miniseries and the first season of “Star Trek: Strange New Worlds” along with the return of Netflix’s “Stranger Things” and HBO’s “Hacks”.

There are several high-profile miniseries this month such as Mike Myers’ “The Pentaverate,” Emmy Rossum-directed “Angelyne,” Bill Skarsgard-directed “Clark,” Colin Firth and Toni Collette starring “The Staircase.” Keira Knightley and Tom Hiddleston-directed “The Essex Serpent”, Jessica Biel-directed “Candy” and JK Simmons and Sissy Spacek-directed “Night Sky” along with “The Time Traveler’s Wife”, “Now and Then” “Conversations with friends “,” Pistol “and more.

There’s also the launch of the new series “Bosch: Legacy” and “The Lincoln Lawyer”, both based on Michael Connelly’s novels, a revival of “The Kids in the Hall” and a spin-off of “Nancy Drew”. Finally, ongoing series like “Love, Death + Robots”, “Tehran”, “The Circle”, “Girls5eva” and “The Wilds” are coming back.

The gaming front continues to be thin on the ground this month with the stylish B&W samurai game “Trek to Yomi”, a fifth “Sniper Elite” main entrance, and the long-awaited “Evil Dead The Game” being the only releases of note.
