The first original to note is The Underground Railroad. This series from Barry Jenkins tells the story of a woman’s desperate attempt for freedom in the Antebellum South and arrives on May 14. Solos. This intriguing anthology has one hell of a cast including Anthony Mackie, Dan Stevens, Anne Hathaway, Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren, Constance Wu, and more. The project premieres on May 21, and each of its seven episodes promises to be quite different.
Round up the month is Panic May 28. With this adaptation of a YA book comes a great promise from The Hunger Games. Prior to that, the only Amazon Original film worth noting is the documentary The boy from Medellín.
As usual, the first of the month makes up the majority of Amazon library titles with Aliens, Almost known, and The sixth sense all go towards the stream. May 5 will see the arrival of Sky Fall and May 13th will bring a recent horror classic Saint maud.
