A WWE Premium Live Event (PLE) is heading to Lyon Metropolis for the first time for WWE Backlash France 2024. Since the formation of TKO in September 2023, WWE has prioritized global expansion. In 2024, Backlash France is the second PLE to be held outside the U.S., and it won’t be the last. Five of the next six WWE PLEs will take place outside the U.S.

Heading into Backlash, WWE is entering the “American Nightmare Era.” After finishing his story at WrestleMania 40, Cody Rhodes is now the Undisputed WWE Champion. A different era means a new crop of challengers for Rhodes. First up is AJ Styles, a former two-time WWE champion. Rhodes must bring his A-game if he wants to walk out of France as champion.

Backlash will start at a special time in the U.S. Below is everything you need to know about WWE Backlash France 2024.

3 action movies on Max you need to watch in May 2024
Two men stand in a submarine in The Hunt for Red October.

While there are great and terrible movies in every genre, it can be especially difficult to tell a great action movie from a terrible one just by looking at the titles. Max, which has an expansive library of great movies across a bunch of different genres, can make the task of finding great action movies pretty difficult.

If you're looking for great action, then we've designed a list that will be perfect for you. These three movies are the ideal titles to check out on Max this May, and they prove that even within the broad genre of action, you can find a bunch of different corners that contain pretty different kinds of movies.

If you have to watch one Tubi movie this May 2024, stream this one
Two people stand in a mountain valley in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.

More than almost any other streaming service, the past lives on at Tubi. Some of that is by necessity, since the bigger streamers sweep up most of the contemporary box office hits, and almost every major studio in Hollywood has its own streaming service. While there are some modern films and TV shows on Tubi, it also has a robust lineup of movies and series that pretend like cinematic and television history began in the '80s. These older titles need a home, and Tubi has given it to them.

However, our pick for the one Tubi movie that you have to watch in May isn't that old, relatively speaking. Director Ang Lee's Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon caused a cultural sensation in 2000, not unlike the way Everything Everywhere All at Once did in 2022 on its way to earning Oscars for Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Actress honors for Michelle Yeoh. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon also features Yeoh in a leading role during an earlier period of her career, and the film was also an Oscar-winner for Best Foreign Language Film, Best Cinematography, Best Art Direction, and Best Original Score. It was also nominated for Best Picture and Best Director, but came up short there.
