Movie Releases: May 5

Each week, I will be publishing a list of movies which are promoted to be in theatres on the upcoming weekend (Friday). I will only be indicating which movies are being released, but you’ll need to check local listings for movie times and locations. It’s a fairly light week this week again, but Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 leads the way so I assume nobody wanted to compete with that opening weekend. It’s supposed to rain all weekend so I’m sure it’ll be pretty busy! “Iiiiii’m Groot!”
