Leave this world behind and embark on a journey to Westworld as HBO’s most-watched freshman series ever returns for its second season, along with exciting new shows, action-packed movies and eye-opening documentaries premiering on HBO NOW this April.

After tipping your hat to Dolores and Maeve, tune into the premiere of the HBO Film Paterno starring Al Pacino as legendary Penn State football coach Joe Paterno in the aftermath of the Jerry Sandusky sexual abuse scandal. April also brings the debut of Wyatt Cenac’s Problem Areas, which follows the Emmy® and WGA Award-winning comedian and writer as he explores America’s most pressing issues, the sixth season premiere of VICE, featuring Michael Kenneth Williams’ personal journey to expose the root of the American mass incarceration crisis: the juvenile justice system, and the finale of Alan Ball’s family drama Here and Now.

HBO Documentary Films presents Elvis Presley: The Searcher, a comprehensive creative journey of the musical artist from his childhood through the final 1976 Jungle Room recording sessions, and King in the Wilderness, which chronicles the final chapter of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s life, revealing a conflicted leader who faced an onslaught of criticism from both sides of the political spectrum.

Theatrical highlights include the action-adventure drama War for the Planet of the Apes starring Woody Harrelson, The Hitman’s Bodyguard with Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson, and the entire The Omen film franchise. To top it off, family flicks Dr. Seuss’ The Cat in the Hat and The Tale of Despereaux arrive this month.

Departing titles include La La Land starring Oscar®-winning actress Emma Stone, Oscar®-nominee Hidden Figures, erotic drama Fifty Shades Darker, Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping, and tear-jerker Collateral Beauty with Will Smith.
