There are movies leaving Netflix this May 2020! You know why? Well, because they say that all good things come to an end.

On a serious Note, Netflix licenses TV shows and movies from studios and content providers around the world, and those licenses can expire if they don’t get reviewed. If a TV show or movie you love is leaving, it indicates that the licensing agreement with the content provider is about to end.

While we all are in the hunt for new shows & series, the movies that we one binge watched on Netflix might be leaving it.

So, here is a comprehensive list of movies and shows that are leaving Netflix in May 2020.

List of Movies to be Removed from Netflix this May 2020


Release Date: 10 March 1995

Director: Wolfgang Petersen

Screen Play: Laurence Dworet, Robert Roy Pool

Category:  Thriller/ Action

Box Office: 18.98 crores USD

Duration: 2h 8m

IMDb Review: 6.6/10

This is a Hollywood cliché of a disaster movie, trying to tackle an “important” issue but using the language of overwrought, stiff 1930s dramas

Wolfgang Petersen’s 1995 thriller has become a rather ghoulish object of fervid rewatching over the past couple of months, dealing as it does with the attempted stifling of a deadly, contagious virus. If “Contagion” has proved the meticulously researched, uncomfortably realistic prediction of our new normal, this is the slick, easy “Hollywood” version. But it’s undeniably effective — particularly a harrowing early sequence dramatizing the virus’s easy spread in, of all places, a crowded movie theater. See you at the multiplex in, say, 2022?

Release Date: 27 November 1991

Director: Howard Zieff

Screen Play: Laurice Elehwany

Category:  Family/Romance

Box Office:  12.5 crores USD

Duration: 1h 42m

IMDb Rating: 6.9/10

Death and single parenthood are never easy topics to talk about with children, and this film deals with them in a mature, responsible way

When this gentle coming-of-age drama was released in 1991, its makers had to contend with an unforeseen complication: the global stardom of Macaulay Culkin, who had shot his supporting role before the release of “Home Alone” and whose fate in the film overwhelmed the response to it (to put it mildly). It has taken years to refocus on the charming picture around him, and especially on the wonderful lead performance by Anna Chlumsky — years (and worlds) away from her delightfully foul-mouthed work on “Veep.”

Release Date: 2 December 1988

Director: David Zucker

Screen Play: David Zucker, Jim Abrahams, Jerry Zucker, Pat proft

Category:  Comedy/Action

Box Office: 14 crores Usd

Duration: 1h 25m

IMDb Reviews: 7.6/10

If you’re at all squeamish about toilet humor, pratfalls, or sexual innuendo, avoid The Naked Gun.

The final full-fledged collaboration between Jerry Zucker, Jim Abrahams and David Zucker — the manic comic madmen behind “Airplane!” and “Top Secret” — was this 1988 feature-length expansion of their short-lived but uproarious 1982 TV series, “Police Squad!” Sending up the voluminous clichés of hard-nosed action movies like “Dirty Harry” and “Telefon,” “The Naked Gun” (and its 1991 sequel, also leaving Netflix this month) solidified Leslie Nielsen’s standing as the straight-faced king of spoof movies and the ZAZ team’s mastery of the mile-a-minute gag fest.

Release Date: 12 April 2013

Director: Derek Cianfrance

Screen Play: Derek Cianfrance, Ben Coccio, Darius Marder

Category: Crime

Box Office: 4.71 Crores  USD

Duration: 2h 20m

IMDb Review: 7.3/10

“The Place Beyond the Pines,” set in and around Schenectady, N.Y., is a tripartite tale in which the sins of the fathers are visited upon the sons.

The “Blue Valentine” director Derek Cianfrance and his star Ryan Gosling reunited for this 2012 drama, which begins as a crime thriller in the “Drive” mode — with Gosling again cast as a moody stunt driver — before Cianfrance unexpectedly shifts the narrative, veering into a tricky, thoughtful mediation on guilt, responsibility and the price sons pay for the sins of their fathers. Bradley Cooper and Eva Mendes stand out in stellar supporting roles.

Release Date: 13 February 2007

Director: Craig Brewer

Screen Play: Craig Brewer

Category:  Drame/Music

Box Office: 1.09 crores USD

Duration: 1h 57m

IMDb Review: 6.9/10

A back-roads bluesman sets out to ‘cure’ the town tramp—by chaining her up—in this nauseating, morally double-minded ‘message’ movie.

The director Craig Brewer followed up the triumph of “Hustle & Flow” with this burbling stew of gutbucket blues, old-time religion, and sweaty sexuality. Samuel L. Jackson is at his bristling best as a farmer and bluesman who attempts to reform a sex addict (Christina Ricci, terrific) by making her go cold turkey. The subject matter is provocative, and Brewer knows it — so he embraces it, giving the picture the pulpy flair and devil-may-care spirit of a lost ’70s exploitation movie.

Release Date: 24 October 1996

Director:  Hugh Wilson

Screen Play: Robert Harling

Category: Comedy/Rom-com

Box Office:18.1 crores USD

Duration: 1h 43m

IMDb Review: 6.4/10

At the end of the movie, the three charismatic lead actresses do a self-affirming song-and-dance number; it’s a fun scene, but it points out what’s been missing from the rest of the picture.

Diane Keaton, Bette Midler, and Goldie Hawn are warm and winning as college friends who gleefully exact revenge against the scuzzy husbands who’ve left them for younger women. The director Hugh Wilson energetically conducts a busy, impressive cast (which also includes Sarah Jessica Parker, Marcia Gay Harden, Stockard Channing, Elizabeth Berkley, and J.K. Simmons and Timothy Olyphant in early roles), and the chemistry among the leads is palpable — they’re clearly having a great time, and that fun is infectious.

Release Date: 17 December 1993

Director: Lasse Hallstrom

Screen Play: Peter Hedges

Category: Drama/Adaptation

Box Office: 1 crore USD

Duration: 2h 8m

IMDb Review: 7.8/10

What’s Eating Gilbert Grape is sometimes hard to watch, but well worth it

Lasse Hallstrom’s film adaptation of the coming-of-age novel by Peter Hedges is a heartfelt (and heartbreaking) snapshot of small-town life and a sympathetic portrait of a family on the verge of collapse. Johnny Depp crafts one of his finest performances as the eldest son (and de facto patriarch) who is barely holding the ragtag clan together but is tempted by the notion of a life of his own. Leonardo DiCaprio netted his first Oscar nomination for his stunning work as his developmentally disabled younger brother.

Release Date: 9 December 2011

Director: Jason Reitman

Screen Play:  Diablo Cody

Category:  Drama/Comedy-drama

Box Office: 2.29 crores USD

Duration: 1h 34m

IMDb Review: 6.2/10

As a cautionary tale to young mean girls, this is a fabulous film, but to those seeking a little heart in their main characters, it’s a bitter pill indeed.

Plenty of movies center on selfish antiheroes, reveling in their bad behavior and antisocial inclinations before cruising them into an easy redemption. But few have given us a protagonist as unapologetically self-serving as Mavis Gary, the alcoholic novelist played to sneering perfection by Charlize Theron in this bleak comedy directed by Jason Reitman (from a clever screenplay by Diablo Cody). Patrick Wilson is charming as the ex-boyfriend she wants back, and Patton Oswalt shines as her reluctant partner in crime.

Release Date: 2 May 1997

Director: Jay Roach

Screen Play: Mike Myers

Category:  Comedy/Spy

Box Office: 6.77 crores USD

Duration: 1h34m

IMDb Review: 7/10

If you’re looking for wry humor and sophistication, you’re simply looking in the wrong place

In retrospect, it’s downright bizarre that Mike Myers’s greatest success would come from such a seemingly niche source. This 1997 sleeper hit was a low-budget spoof of Matt Helm, Derek Flint and other (mostly forgotten) James Bond knockoffs of the late 1960s. But in that film and its two sequels (also leaving Netflix this month), Myers built a bizarre universe of time-shifting narratives, memorable characters, and ubiquitous catchphrases, creating one of the most enduring comic franchises of the era.

Release Date: 9 November 2003

Director: Joe Dante

Screen Play: Larry Doyle

Category: Animation/Comedy

Box Office: 6.85 crores USD

Duration: 1h 33m

IMDb Review: 5.7/10

Daffy Duck is sick and tired of his career. He gets bashed, smashed, burned, bludgeoned, blown up, shot—and for what?!

One of the more baffling mysteries of our time is how “Space Jam” — a crass, witless, lead-footed feature-length commercial spot — has become a beloved family favorite while this follow-up, a superior Looney Tunes feature by every conceivable measure, is consigned to oblivion. But it’s a blast, with the director Joe Dante (whose “Gremlins” pictures were clearly informed by the controlled chaos of Bugs and Daffy) masterfully orchestrating the lunacy. Steve Martin goes for broke as the dastardly villain.
