We’re nearing the first week of June, which means we can expect dozens of new movies to choose from on our favorite streaming outlets very soon. But the start of a new month also means the end of another, and the final days of each month are notably a slow time for new releases.
But we do have a few new films to choose from this week—11 movies in total, in fact. Here are the most anticipated releases for each platform.
Note: At the end of the article, you can find a full list of all the new releases available this week.
Cruella de Vil has been a fixture in pop culture ever since the release of 101 Dalmatians in 1961. And now Disney has decided to give the infamous villain her very own origin story. The film follows Cruella (played by Emma Stone), an aspiring fashion designer who becomes a notorious criminal.
Cruella will be available to stream on Disney+ on May 28. (Note: This film requires an extra fee with Premier Access.)
Nail Bomber: Manhunt (Netflix)
Netflix continues its barrage of true-crime documentaries this week with Nail Bomber: Manhunt. This films documents the 1999 London bombings that targeted Black, Bangladeshi and gay communities, and the race to find the far-right perpetrator.
Nail Bomber: Manhunt will be available to stream on Netflix on May 27.
PLAN B (Hulu)
In what truly looks like a Superbad-esque film for Generation Z, PLAN B tackles the stress of sex and pregnancy in this day and age. After a regrettable sexual encounter, a straight-laced student and her best friend have 24 hours to hunt down a Plan B pill in South Dakota.
Plan B will be available to stream on Hulu on May 29.
Cinderella Man (HBO Max)
Boxing has long been the foundation for many memorable dramatic films. And in 2005, director Ron Howard took his turn at the genre. Cinderella Man follows ex-boxer James J. Braddock during the Great Depression. He works as a day laborer until his former manager Joe brings him back into the ring full time.
Cinderella Man will be available to stream on HBO Max on May 26.
