What’s Coming To HBO Max in May 2021, Including ‘Those Who Wish Me Dead’ and ‘Hacks’

Fern Siegel

This month on HBO Max, the original movie “Those Who Wish Me Dead” will be released in theaters and on the streamer. In it, assassins chase a teenage murder witness (Finn Little) through the Montana wilderness. All he has to protect him is a fire-watcher (Angelina Jolie), risking everything to help him, even as a forest fire threatens.

An original HBO Max show, “Hacks” explores a difficult mentorship between Deborah Vance (Jean Smart), an old-school Las Vegas comedian whose material is a bit passé, and the entitled, but ambitious 25-year-old writer (Hannah Einbinder) she hires to make her act more relevant.

On the streamer’s doc front, “The Crime of the Century” is a two-part series that slams Big Pharma and the political ops that enabled and abused the distribution of synthetic opiates. It’s directed by award-winner Alex Gibney (“Going Clear: Scientology & the Prison of Belief”).
