Coming and Going on HBO Now in May 2016

Bradley Whitford, Anthony Mackie, and Bryan Cranston in the HBO original movie 'All the Way.'

HBO subscribers all know that Game of Thrones is back with new episodes, but May brings other movies and original programs as well. Bryan Cranston reprises his Tony Award-winning role as Lyndon B. Johnson in the HBO original All the Way. Among the new films that arrive each Saturday night are the big screen revival of The Man from U.N.C.L.E., the splashy interstellar adventure Jupiter Ascending, the workplace comedy The Intern with Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway, and the indie comedy Mistress America with Greta Gerwig. Also debuting are the Academy Award®-nominated documentary short film Claude Lanzmann: Spectres of the Shoah and the new HBO Latino series Dios, Inc., and fans of Mr. Show with Bob and David can now stream all four seasons of the acclaimed sketch comedy series from David Cross and Bob Odenkirk.
