New on Netflix in May 2018

As is the case every month, the month of May will see Netflix add a treasure of movies and TV shows to its streaming library. Not only does this batch include the wonderful Oscar-winning animated film Coco, The Bourne Ultimatum (the third chapter in the franchise) also arrives, giving Netflix a jolt of adrenaline.
