May looks to be a solid month for movies with expectations set high for highly anticipated sequels on the horizon such as ‘Captain America: Civil War’, ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’, ‘Alice Through the Looking Glass’ and ‘Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising’, while ‘The Angry Birds Movie’ will continue if video game films should be adapted into feature films.

KEY:

RIGHT ON THE MONEY (0-5% range)

SO CLOSE (6-20% range)
