New To Peacock In May 2021: Hobbits, Heroes, And Girls5eva

April was a big month for Peacock, with the WWE joining the service and streaming Wrestlemania 37. This month, things are a bit more low-key, with a huge pile of movies coming to the service. Most of them hit right on May 1.

The list includes classic animation like An American Tail and An American Tail: Fievel Goes West; action films like the Bourne Identity, the Bourne Supremacy, and the Bourne Ultimatum; and superhero movies of debatable quality, including Catwoman, Green Lantern, Kick-Ass 2, and Hellboy (2019). On the other hand, we’ll also see stuff like Mystery Men, Crank, and Waterworld arriving on the service.

NBC has two Peacock Originals coming, as well. Girls5eva is a musical comedy arriving on May 6. A ’90s one-hit girl group gets a second chance when a rapper samples their song. Busy Phillips stars, and Tina Fey and Robert Carlock, who produced 30 Rock and the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt together, are executive producing the show. The other Peacock Original, Intergalactic, arrives May 13. NBCUniversal has provided no information about this property, and we literally can’t find any reliable information about it anywhere. Peacock doesn’t even have a trailer on its official YouTube channel.

Here’s the full list of what you can expect from Peacock in May, and when. Asterisked* items are exclusive to Peacock, at least for May.
