Run and everything coming to HBO in April 2020

Whether you’re looking for great comedy or exciting horror, HBO has you covered in April 2020. Here’s everything coming to and leaving HBO.

As we enter what’s likely to be a full month of lockdown, we’re looking at finding things to watch. HBO has some excellent movies and TV shows heading our way throughout the month of April 2020.

There are a few notable mentions. Run Season 1 is the big HBO Original heading to the streamer. Created by the team that brought you Fleabag, the series focuses on two adults who make a pact to just run away from their jobs and lives. They head on a journey around the country, but is the grass greener on the other side?

For those who prefer horror, IT: Chapter 2 is heading to the streaming service. It’s about time, too, right? This is the chance to see how it all ends (in case you haven’t read the Stephen King novel and you didn’t watch the 90s made-for-TV movie). Can the group of friends take down Pennywise decades later?

If you need a bit of comedy to fill your month, the American Pie movies are heading your way at the start of the month. The spin-off movies aren’t on their way, but you can watch the four main movies from the beginning to the end.

There are some movies leaving the streaming service during the month. Most of them are on the last day of April. This is your last call for the likes of Mary, Queen of Scots and the Homeward Bound movies.

A big suggestion I’d make is Sophie’s Choice. The World War II movie is a heartbreaking tale, starting with a mother who has to choose between her two children. And this isn’t some minor choice where she sends one off to live a nice life. When she enters a concentration camp, she has to pick one to potentially live and the other to definitely die, or they both die. The reality of the movie is why I never take the term “Sophie’s Choice” lightly, although it seems to be used for some of the most ridiculously minor choices in the world.
