Hollywood will never see another like the late Robin Williams. Fortunately, the Oscar winner's movies live on. And only E! News has an exclusive sneak peek at his final film, Boulevard, an indie drama starring Williams as suburban husband and dad grapping with his sexual orientation. In the clip above, his wife (Kathy Baker) finally confronts him back at home after he abandons her at a work dinner to deal with a crisis with the hustler he's infatuated with. "What does he do for you that I don't?" Baker asks. "It's not that," Williams says, fighting back tears. Baker goes into a rage. "Does he clean your clothes for you," she says. »
"My parents divorced after 40 years of marriage. I said to my mother, 'What are you gonna do now?' She said she wasn't done yet just because she was 70. It moved me and stuck with me. More than anything, it was the idea of how after all these years, you can actually let go," director Dito Montiel told us about what drew him to the drama "Boulevard," which features the final performance of the late Robin Williams. Co-starring Kathy Baker, Bob Odenkirk and Roberto Aguire, the story follows Nolan, a married but closeted 60 year-old bank employee whose spontaneous turn down an unfamiliar street upends his monotonous life and crumbling marriage, when he picks up a young, charismatic hustler. It's a showcase role for Williams, who brought his immeasurable skills to his portrayal of the character.

I miss Robin Williams, Lord I how I miss that man. I will never forget hearing that he had not only died but apparently by his own hand. This comic genius who brought so much laughter and love to so many people suffered from severe depression. And we lost him because of it, we lost so much.
Now here at last is the final piece of work on his resume, the final movie of Robin Williams. Is it a great movie? Yes, absolutely! Is it easy to watch? No, not at all. Boulevard is a movie with a deep well of sadness, a great epic sadness and loneliness that hangs over this movie and fills every frame like nothing I have ever seen.

Executive producer Carlton Cuse announced four guest stars who’ll be joining USA’s dystopian La future series Colony: Carl Weathers, three time Emmy winner Kathy Baker from Picket Fences, Kathleen Rose Perkins from Episodes, and CSI’s Paul Guilfoyle. Cuse tried to keep as much as he could under wraps during the panel, however, it was kind of hard considering they showed off the first 11 minutes of the pilot, which received a decent reaction from the jam-packed Room… »
Robin Williams's last dramatic role sees him playing Nolan Mack, a closeted banker, in Dito Montiel's quiet drama Boulevard, which premiered at Tribeca Film Festival last year and opens in select theaters July 10. Nolan, who is married to Joy (Kathy Baker), begins to have a sexual awakening at the late age of 60, when he embarks on a relationship with a young hustler named Leo (Roberto Aguire). In this exclusive clip, his friend Winston, played by Better Call Saul's Bob Odenkirk, happens to confront Nolan about his strange behavior at the exact moment Leo comes into his bank. Obviously, things get complicated. »

Throughout his all too brief career, Robin Williams was rightly praised as a comedic genius. He was also feted quite a bit for his dramatic work, but never quite as much as I felt that he deserved. We all know of his tragic passing, but this week he has one last dramatic performance to share with the world in Boulevard, and go figure…it’s one of his best performances ever. Certainly top ten worthy, if you ask me. While it’s incredibly depressing that he won’t be around to share his gift with us anymore, Boulevard is a wonderful swan song for Williams and a reminder of just what a talent he was. The film is a look at a man struggling with coming out late in life. Nolan (played by the aforementioned Williams) loves his wife, but he’s known all his life that he was gay. »

Director Dito Montiel‘s agreeable later-life coming-out drama “Boulevard” already labors under a burden of true tragedy: It’s the last dramatic role the late Robin Williams filmed before his August 2014 suicide, the knowledge of which colors and shapes a viewer’s reaction to the film. Williams stars as Nolan, a 60-year-old man with a perfectly normal life: 25 years working at the bank, marriage to his wife Joy (Kathy Baker) and a circle of good friends. Yet this isn’t the life Nolan wants, and one night he drives down to the part of town where young men and women »

It's jarring to see Robin Williams in a movie trailer, so long after the actor's August 2014 death. And he's front and center in the new promo for "Boulevard," his final onscreen film role (he also voices a dog in the comedy "Absolutely Anything," out later this summer), spouting the sort of lines that are imbued with new meaning in the wake of his passing.
Williams plays Nolan, a 60-year-old closeted man stuck in a marriage he doesn't want, working a dead-end bank job for more than 25 years, and wondering how his life got so far from happy.
"Nothing turned out the way I thought, I guess," he says.
One night on the way home from work, Nolan takes a sudden detour down an unfamiliar road, and ends up picking up Leo (newcomer Roberto Aguire), a young hooker who Nolan pays for companionship rather than sex. He's drawn into Leo's life, »

Boulevard Trailer. Dito Montiel‘s Boulevard (2014) movie trailer stars Robin Williams, Bob Odenkirk, Kathy Baker, and Giles Matthey. Boulevard‘s plot synopsis: “A devoted husband in a marriage of convenience is forced to confront his secret life.”
Boy, oh boy. It’s hard to make a trailer for this film without it feeling off. Robin Williams hanged himself and slit his wrists. That’s dark. There’s nothing inspiring or positive or hopeful about any of that. We’re told to celebrate his life, and we sure do. We love his films, and we miss his personality.
Robin Williams has always been his best in dramatic performances. I truly believe that. I know he’s a funny-man, a comedian to most, and probably best known as Ms. Doubtfire. But even in that movie, you can see the emotional intellect behind his face. He was a highly intelligent man, and impossible talented. »

Mark Ruffalo and wife Sunrise Coigney on the Red Carpet Mark Ruffalo and wife Sunrise Coigney Oscars photo Mark Ruffalo and wife Sunrise Coigney arrive at the 83rd Academy Awards on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre at (almost) the corner of Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue in downtown Hollywood. Ruffalo was a 2011 Best Supporting Actor nominee for his role as a chauvinistic male slob who disrupts the family life of a lesbian couple in Lisa Cholodenko's Best Picture contender The Kids Are All Right. The dramatic comedy co-stars Best Actress nominee Annette Bening, Julianne Moore, Josh Hutcherson, and Mia Wasikowska. This was Ruffalo's first Academy Award nomination. As it turned out, The Kids Are All Right didn't win a single statuette on Sunday night. But at the 2011 Spirit Awards held the day before, Lisa Cholodenko and Stuart Blumberg's screenplay was chosen as the best of the year among independent films. »

Our look at underappreciated films of the 80s continues, as we head back to 1988...
Either in terms of ticket sales or critical acclaim, 1988 was dominated by the likes of Rain Man, Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Coming To America. It was the year Bruce Willis made the jump from TV to action star with Die Hard, and became a star in the process.
It was the year Leslie Nielsen made his own jump from the small to silver screen with Police Squad spin-off The Naked Gun, which sparked a hugely popular franchise of its own. Elsewhere, the eccentric Tim Burton scored one of the biggest hits of the year with Beetlejuice, the success of which would result in the birth of Batman a year later. And then there was Tom Cruise, who managed to make a drama about a student-turned-barman into a $170m hit, back when $170m was still an »

Lionsgate released their new romantic/drama film, "The Age of Adaline," into theaters this weekend, and all the reviews have been turned in from the top, major movie critics. It turns out that about half of them liked it, which is better than nothing I guess. It got a mixed 51 score out of a possible 100 across 30 reviews at the Metacritic.com site. The film stars: Harrison Ford, Blake Lively, Ellen Burstyn, Kathy Baker, Amanda Crew and Michiel Huisman. We've supplied blurbs from a couple of the critics,below. Matt Zoller Seitz from RogerEbert.com, gave it a decent 75 grade, stating: " Ford's voice — always deep, lowered an octave by age and one more by William's longing — is even more powerful. This is Ford's best performance since "The Fugitive," maybe since "Witness." Kyle Smith over at the New York Post, gave it a 75 grade ,saying: " The film is as tender and endearing as a lamb, »
