Five Must-See Movies in May

Sometimes a movie screens for one night only, and sometimes it shows for weeks or months. That's why when it comes to moviegoing, planning ahead is crucial.

Planners that we are, we've selected five must-see flicks screening in the Valley this month. Stock up on your preferred salty, sweet snacks and check out our picks ...

5. The Avengers
You can stop biting your nails now. Set up through years of successive superhero flicks, Joss Whedon's The Avengers finally crashes into theaters on Friday, May 5.

S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) assembles the action ensemble, composed of Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Hulk, Black Widow, and Hawkeye, to combat villain Loki (Thor's adopted brother, played by Tom Hiddleston) and save Earth from his Nordic jerkness.

The superheroes swing into action with a wide release on Friday, May 4.

4. 2 Days in New York
Well, spoiler alert. Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts' sneak-peek film series Talk Cinema will bring Julie Delpy's romantic drama 2 Days in New York, which stars Delpy and Chris Rock, to the screen before its theatrical release.

Get an early look at the movie at 7 p.m. Tuesday, May 8. Moderated discussion will follow. Admission is $19, and discounts are available when buying ticket packages and for students.
