SALT LAKE CITY (KUTV) — With April wrapping up, it's just about time to look ahead to May. First, before we can welcome new titles, we have to say goodbye to a few old familiars. Here are five titles that caught my eye.


Released in 2011, "Limitless" caught Bradley Cooper on the rise. The commercial success of "The Hangover" was behind him, but the critical acclaim of "Silver Linings Playbook" was just ahead. "Limitless" sees Cooper starring as Eddie Morra, a man who with the help of a super pill is able to use 100% of his brain's abilities to become a very successful businessman. Unfortunately, Morra soon learns that his newfound success comes at a price. (Leaving 5/15/20)

Young Adult

Jason Reitman directs Charlize Theron in screenwriter Diablo Cody's "Young Adult." The story follows Mavis Gary (Theron), a writer, who returns to her hometown following her divorce in hopes of striking up a romance with her ex-boyfriend. Things don't go to plan. (Leaving 5/19/20)

Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery

Those who enjoy the Mike Myers spy-spoof films will have until the end of May to catch the Austin Powers trilogy of "International Man of Mystery," "The Spy Who Shagged Me" and "Goldmember." (Leaving 5/31/20)

Final Destination

Originally intended to be an "X-Files" episode, the Final Destination franchise has spawned five films and numerous novels and comics. The films are all focused on characters who narrowly avoid death due to last minute decisions. Four of the franchise's five films are set to leave Netflix at the end of the month. (Leaving 5/31/20)


Released in 1995, "Outbreak," a film that sees a deadly Ebola-like virus spread across the world, explores the power that the military would be willingly given by citizens when faced with a world-wide pandemic. The film stars Dustin Hoffman, Rene Russo, Morgan Freeman and Donald Sutherland. Directed by Wolfgang Petersen, "Outbreak" isn't nearly as good as its parts, but it entertains. (Leaving 5/31/20)
