Go back to the future on HBO in April: Season two of the ambitious science-fiction series “Westworld,” a smart and savvy re-imagining of the 1970s movie, and “War for the Planet of the Apes,” the third film in the superb revival trilogy, offer radically different takes on our evolutionary course.

Also coming in April is the action comedy “The Hitman’s Bodyguard” with Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson; the HBO original film “Paterno” with Al Pacino; and the original documentaries “King in the Wilderness,” about the final years of Martin Luther King Jr., and “Elvis Presley: The Searcher,” which follows the musical evolution of Elvis throughout his career.

Older films returning to HBO include the Jack to Ripper thriller “From Hell” with Johnny Depp; John Grisham adaptation “Runaway Jury” with Gene Hackman and Dustin Hoffman; romantic drama “Waitress” with Keri Russell; workplace comedy “Nine to Five” with Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin and Dolly Parton; and devil-spawn horror “The Omen,” along with three sequels.

Among the films leaving at the end of April are the Oscar-winning modern musical “La La Land“; Oscar-nominated “Hidden Figures“; video-game adaptation “Assassin’s Creed“; Wes Anderson’s “The Royal Tenenbaums“; and “The Terminator,” starring Arnold Schwarzenegger as the original killer robot.

Here’s the complete calendar of what’s coming to HBO Now, HBO Go and HBO on Demand in April — original programming, first-run movies, and films from the past couple of decades — and what’s leaving.
