The best movies on Hulu right now (May 2024)

There's a reason why Disney+ is splashing Hulu content all over its home page. Hulu simply has a better selection of movies to draw upon, and it's not limited to flicks within the Disney corporate empire. Instead, Hulu gets to borrow some of the best movies from other studios like Warner Bros. and Sony, while giving 20th Century Studios' more mature titles a place to call home. That makes Hulu a more complete streaming service than Disney+.

This month's new movies on Hulu include an eclectic selection, from oddball comedies like The Royal Tenenbaums to the Johnny Cash music biopic Walk the Line to action movies like Bad Boys for Life and Black Hawk Down, and more. Those titles are just the beginning of the best movies on Hulu right now. No matter what kind of movies you like, Hulu has something for you to watch below.
