What’s Coming to Netflix in May 2019

Easter, Passover and 4/20 will all be left behind in April, but there’s plenty to celebrate with Netflix’s May lineup. Netflix is handing viewers a red pill to go down the rabbit hole of not one, but all three “Matrix” movies. Viewers can also watch Hunter S. Thompson’s alter ego Raoul Duke take different types of pills in Terry Gilliam’s “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.”

Audiences can hear Al Pacino say “cockaroacha” in “Scarface,” Mike Myers say “baaaaby” in the first two “Austin Powers” movies and Bill Murray say “uuuunhhhhhh” in “Zombieland.” Gene Hackman will give some inspiring speeches in “Hoosiers” while Kal Penn and John Cho will give some not-so-coherent speeches in “Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay.” Mike Nichols’ classic will ask the rhetorical question “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” and the boys of “Dumb and Dumber” might just think Nichols is asking about a wolf named Virginia.

Netflix is also launching a new intuitive to stream more classic black films with a rotation of throwbacks throughout the rest of the year. The first of this initiative will be “B*A*P*S,” hitting the service May 1.
