May is finally here and that means summer blockbusters are coming in strong this month. While April gave us a taste of what’s to come this season, this month brings out the best of big budget cinema.

Between comedies to franchise favorites, May is setting itself up for an incredible month of movies to tune into well into the summer months. To get you up to speed and keep you on you toes this upcoming summer, we share five movie you need to watch this month.

This remake of the ‘80s romantic comedy starring Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell follows the a similar premise, but with a twist on a gender reversal. Overboard focuses on Kate (Anna Faris), a working class single mom hired to clean his luxury yacht who takes advantage of her employer, Leonardo (Eugenio Derbez), a selfish, spoiled playboy who mistreats her after an accident leaves him with memory loss.

Life of the Party

Releases: May 12

It isn’t summer without a college flick hitting the box office.

Reminiscent of the ‘80s classic, Back to School, McCarthy’s character embraces her freedom, while finding her true self.

Breaking In

Releases: May 12

In honor of Mother’s Day, Breaking In is proving that there is nothing scarier than a mother who will stop at nothing to protect her children being held hostage. With a storyline similar to Panic Room, Gabrielle Union stars in the film that has a mother rescuing her two children who are held hostage in a house with impenetrable security.

Deadpool 2

Releases: May 18

Picking up from the hit 2016 superhero film, Deadpool 2 is one of the most hotly anticipated sequels arriving this summer. While the plot has been under wraps and publicly detracting from the real story that has not been shared with fans just yet, the trailer shows the second chapter of Wade Wilson’s journey to be an intense one, full of cool action sequences, laughter and of course, tons of Ryan Reynolds breaking down the fourth wall.

Solo: A Star Wars Story

Releases: May 25

In what is quite possibly one of the most anticipated films of the year, Solo: A Star Wars Story details the origin story of everyone’s favorite Star Wars character and galaxy scoundrel, Han Solo. In an all-new prequel, the film chronicles Solo’s (Alden Ehrenreich) daring escape deep within a dark and dangerous underworld. Along the way, Solo meets his future co-pilot (and best friend), Chewbacca as they encounter the notorious Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover).
