This May normally marks the beginning of the summer movie season, but it seems that the shift may be on to spread it earlier (just check out how Captain America 2 is doing). So what makes this May any different? It could possibly be the biggest month of all time in terms of box office receipts. So the Marvel movie craze seems to be reaching higher and higher and May will no doubt be any different.


May 2nd starts with The Amazing Spider-man 2. The story synopsis goes like this: A corporation creates super-powered beings and sends them against our web-spinning hero. So what makes him special? Spider-Man is one of those heroes who appeals to a wide audience because as he tries to beat his enemy, we discover his flaws and witness his strengths during the course of his battles.

May 16th brings about the biggest (literally) movie character. A classic retelling of the 1954 monster movie which reintroduces Godzilla to a modern audience. Monsters rise to destroy the earth and only Godzilla can try to stop them. Since his first appearance, Godzilla has been in a number of films where he fights aliens, monsters, and even robot versions of himself all to save the earth from destruction.

 May 23rd ushers in X-Men: Days of Future Past which is based on the comic book story of the same name. The story goes like this: The present day government would like to control the growing mutant population by using robot sentries called Sentinels. However, the Sentinels become so good at what they do that they become self-aware and start to curb all people who have any mutant abilities whether those abilities are shown or possible in future generations. A band of X-Men then decide to go back in time to prevent the Sentinels from taking over the world.

May 30th is Maleficent which is the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the 1959 classic “Sleeping Beauty”. Angelina Jolie looks amazing as the classic villain.

So there you have it. One jam packed month full of movies which will appeal to those young and old. - See more at: http://www.cityvida.com/may-movie-preview-spider-man-godzilla-and-x-men-oh-my/#more-7079
