The theatrical premieres are usually the highlights of HBO’s streaming offerings on the HBO Go and HBO Now services, but at the risk of offending War For The Planet Of The Apes and The Hitman’s Bodyguard, that’s not the case for April of 2018. That’s partly because those two movies are the entirety of HBO’s theatrical premieres for next month, but also because HBO is getting the season premiere of Westworld, arguably its biggest show that is not Game Of Thrones.


April will also see the premiere of a new season of Vice and the series premiere of Wyatt Cenac’s Problem Areas, and you’ll also be able to the entire Omen series, a few Final Destination, and Bad Boys II—the best movie ever made about shit that just got real. Sadly, it will also be your last oppurtunity to watch two of the decade’s most important movies about music: La La Land and Popstar: Never Stop Stopping.
