“A Hologram for the King,” a sleeper drama based on the novel by Dave Eggers and starring Tom Hanks, arrives as “The Circle,” the second meeting of Eggers and Hanks, debuts in theaters. It’s one of the new films arriving on Hulu in May.

Other new arrivals include the romantic drama “Me Before You” with Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin; comic-book movie “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows”; and “Winter’s Bone,” the film that earned Jennifer Lawrence her first Oscar nomination.

Hulu launches the third season of its original series “Casual,” as well as the WGN shows “Underground: Season 2” and “Outsiders: Season 2,” TNT series “The Last Ship: Season 3” and FX comedy “Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll: Season 2.”

Original documentaries debuting in May include “Becoming Bond,” about actor George Lazenby (his sole James Bond film, “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service,” is also arriving in May), and “Batman and Bill,” about Bill Finger, the forgotten co-creator of the Batman comic books.

Older arrivals include “Big Fish” with Ewan McGregor and Albert Finney; action comedies “48 Hrs.” and “Another 48 Hrs.” with Eddie Murphy and Nick Nolte; horror films “Cabin Fever” and “Cabin Fever 2”; comedy “Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad!” and its two sequels; and the spaghetti Western classic “A Fistful of Dollars” with Clint Eastwood.

Among the films leaving Hulu at the end of May are “A Simple Plan” with Bill Paxton, “Ides of March” with George Clooney, Oscar winner “The Hours,” and Eli Roth’s notorious horror films “Hostel” and “Hostel: Part 2.”

Here’s what arriving on the service in May, and what’s leaving. Dates are subject to change without notice.
