Wonnemonat also in the cinema: 8 worth seeing restarts in May

Spring is here, moviegoers can already walk in their T-shirt to their favorite light house in May. We examined the cinema reboots and put together a colorful, fragrant potpourri. Is the right thing for you?

"Fighting with my Family"

Genre: biopic, drama, comedy

That's it: Wrestling is much more than just a sport to the Knight family. While father Ricky earns more money than a wrestler, his children Zak and Paige have a chance to compete in a WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc.) trial. But only Paige gets a place in the training program and must prevail without strong support from her family against strong competition.

Assessment: The biopic that tells the story of professional wrestler Saraya-Jade may have the ingredients of a typical sports movie. The British quirks paired with a lot of heart could make the film but a special insider tip – not least, since Hollywood star Dwayne Johnson has his fingers in the game.

Theatrical release: 01. May 2019

"Pokémon Master Detective Pikachu"

Genre: Action, Fantasy, Comedy

That's it: In the live action movie, the Pokémon live in the real world. When Tim's father mysteriously disappears, he teamed up with master detective Pikachu to find his dad. Together, they uncover a shocking conspiracy that could end the peaceful coexistence between humans and fantasy monsters forever.

Assessment: Couple Ryan Reynolds ("Deadpool") voice with the fluffy fantasy creature Pikachu from the video games – and out comes one of the probably funniest films of the year.

Theatrical release: May 9, 2019

"Glam Girls: ravishly spoiled"

Genre: Comedy

That's it: Penny and Josephine have been disappointed by the men so far only. So the two con artists get together to exempt millionaires. While Josephine triumphs in class, the clumsy Penny must first be introduced to the art of noble fraud. The duckling soon becomes a cunning swan.

Assessment: The new edition of "Two ravish spoiled rogues" with female cast seems to put on the same irreverent humor as the original. Rebel Wilson is the character of the episode anyway, and Anne Hathaway can once again prove her comedy talent after "Ocean's 8".

Theatrical release: May 9, 2019

"The Silence"

Genre: horror, thriller

That's it: 16-year-old Ally and her family are on the run. The reason: A previously unknown parasite species was able to free itself from a cave system and hunts people. Even the smallest noise attracts the prehistoric monsters.

Assessment: The parallels with "A Quiet Place" and also "Bird Box" are obvious. Whether the concept works again, however, is questionable despite good performers.

Theatrical release: May 16, 2019


Genre: Family Movie, Adventure, Comedy

That's it: " Aladdin" recounts the story from the popular 1992 animated cartoon. The street boy Aladdin falls in love with the beautiful Princess Jasmine, a lively genie to help him to his luck.

Assessment: Similar to "The Beauty and the Beast", "Aladdin" seems to be a nearly 1: 1 real-movie adaptation of the animated cartoon. This is nothing new, but should satisfy Disney fans completely. Above all, it will be exciting to see Will Smith as a blue jinni.

Theatrical release: May 23, 2019

"John Wick: Chapter 3"

Genre: Action, Thriller

That's it: John Wick is on the run. After the hitman broke the contract killer code, all the killers in the world are on the hunt for the outlaw Baba Yaga. But John Wick would not be John Wick if he could not pull his head out of the noose with some help.

Assessment: In the big showdown of the Assassins saga, heavy guns should be raised again and John Wicks status cemented as an action icon.

Theatrical release: May 23, 2019


Genre: biopic, drama

That's it: Older music fans guessed it, "Rocketman" is a biopic about Sir Elton John. The title refers to an eponymous hit of the musician from the 1970s. The film tells the fascinating and uncensored story of the exceptional artist as a fantasy musical.

Assessment: The fact that musician biopics fill the cinemas was recently proven by "Bohemian Rhapsody" . Taron Egerton now has the chance to show that he can convince off the "Kingsman" franchise – even vocally.

Theatrical release: 30th May 2019

"Godzilla II -King of the Monsters"

Genre: Action, Thriller

That's it: Godzilla has to record it in his second adventure (at least this reboot series) equal to several prehistoric monsters. Mothra, Rodan and Godzilla's archenemy, the three-headed King Ghidorah, compete for supremacy on Earth. The only question is: what are the people doing?

Assessment: Fans of oversized primeval monsters should get their money's worth.

Theatrical release: May 23, 2019
