From Harry Styles to Alien: Covenant, from Injustice 2 to Twin Peaks, here are the 11 May releases you should be keeping an eye on.

Yes, today is the last day you can post any and all photos of Justin Timberlake, but preferably of him during his time in *NSYNC with the caption “It’s gonna be May.” Indeed, tomorrow marks the first day of that weird month that’s sort of spring but also usually gets pretty summery towards the end. But with May comes a bevy of new things from all over pop culture, from movies to music to video games to yes, even books and TV shows. Gone are the days where May represented the beginning of the summer TV drought.

Keeping up with everything can be a bit of a trial, though, and that’s why we’ve wrapped up 11 of the biggest releases coming out this month. We’ll give you the release date, some details, and explain why you might want to care.

If we miss what you’ve been anticipating most, be sure to let us know in the comments below or even on Twitter @CulturessFS. But without further ado, let’s get into what you’ll want to be watching, listening to, and playing next month.
